The event, co-hosted by the Hyundai Group and the Asia-Pacific North-East Asia Peace Committee, will be followed by a ceremony at the Kumgang Mountain Cultural Center, followed by ceremonial ceremonies, presentations and dinner the next day . It was only four years since the 16th anniversary of the 2014 event that North Korea held a tourism commemoration event.
The Hyundai Group, which began visiting Mount Kumgang in 1998, held its first anniversary event at Mt. Geumgang during the following year,

Geumgang earlier this month to discuss private exchange and cooperation measures, and it is hoped that the & # 39; meeting Geumgangsan & # 39; continue in the private sector in the future.
Hyun-soo is expected to announce the results of his visit to South Korea on the 19th, after finishing his third visit to Korea this year.
