North Korea’s halt of nuclear test brings hopes to South Korean economy

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un’s decision to halt the nuclear tests is likely to improve the geopolitical situation in South Korea, economic observers said.

Pyongyang’s state media said it will stop nuclear and missile tests and dismantle its nuclear test site in a shift of policy focus to the economy. The conflict between North-South Korea had led to undervalued local stocks in South Korea. Though, the announcement regarding denuclearization of North Korea has raised new hopes among the investors as the inter-Korean tension is likely to be eased out. The announcement came ahead of the scheduled North-South Korea summit.

The Pho Hien Folk Cultural Festival opened in Hung Yen province on Saturday.

The festival is the largest cultural event in the province this year, in response to the 2018 National Tourism Year Ha Long – Quang Ninh. During the festival, a series of activities will be organised, including traditional rituals, lion dance festivals, a palanquin procession, folk games, singing contests and an exhibition.
