For a wide collection of images of Kaesong, just go to the Wikimedia Commons. Of course, it's anyone's guess whether those are of the KIR or of some other part of Kaesong. And also, this article would need to be substantially expanded before it can support an additional image. -- Visviva 05:33, 23 April 2006 (UTC)

Will this actually benefit North Korea, or just give wages to the communist party (since all employees are part of the communist party). They should be taking North Koreans from everywhere BUT Pyongyang. --Hurricane Angel 07:29, 28 October 2006 (UTC)

It would naturally benefit every part: the workers will get higher salary by DPRK standards, the DPRK will acquire much needed foreign currency, while Hundai and others will lower production costs.

It won't benefit anyone since NK is trying to extort any firm stupid enough to invest any money at all in a corrupt Stalinist police state. The whole idea is crashing and burning as this article points out. (talk) 23:44, 18 August 2011 (UTC)

Rail transportEdit

From reading Wikipedia, I get the impression that the Pyongbu Line terminates (for practical purposes) at Kaesong Station and that Sonha Station, Pongdong Station and Panmun Station are (for practical purposes) on the Gyeongui Line to South Korea. Can anyone confirm this? Biscuittin (talk) 09:03, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

No criticism?Edit

Seems unlikely it didnt draw criticism. (talk) 21:28, 19 December 2011 (UTC)

Probably such a given for everything to do with NK that it would be redundant to mention it here. (talk) 17:46, 3 April 2013 (UTC)

Area probably wrongEdit

The given area of 66 km² seems to be wrong. Compare this with the area of 9200 km² of the province North Hwanghae Province(firectly north of Kaesong). In French wikioedia the 66 km² refer only to the Industrial Park, not the Industrial Region.Torsch (talk) 21:33, 14 August 2013 (UTC)
