April 28, 2021

The Government formulated the 2021 Implementation Plan for the Development of Inter-Korean Relations, the fourth annual plan for the Third Master Plan on Development of Inter-Korean Relations (2018-2022).

The Development of Inter-Korean Relations Act requires the Government to formulate a master plan that presents the vision, goals, and basic direction for developing inter-Korean relations every five years, followed up by annual implementation plans.

The 2021 Implementation Plan was established to carry out the main tasks* by setting the following policy goals : ① Resolution of the North Korean nuclear issue and establishment of permanent peace, ② Development of sustainable inter-Korean Relations, and ③ Realization of a New Economic Community on the Korean Peninsula.

    * Main tasks: ① Resolution of the North Korean Nuclear issue and establishment of a peace regime, ② Inter-Korean dialogue, ③ Inter-Korean exchange and cooperation, ④ Implementation of the New Economic Map Initiative for the Korean Peninsula, ⑤ Humanitarian cooperation, ⑥ Settlement support for North Korean defectors, and ⑦ Expansion of the consensus on peaceful unification and reinforcement of unification capabilities.

The Ministry of Unification, upon discussing matters with officials from related agencies and civilian members of the Inter-Korean Relations Development Committee, finalized the plan through deliberation by the Committee. The finalized 2021 Implementation Plan was then reported to the National Assembly.

The Government will carry out the 2021 Implementation Plan in close cooperation with relevant ministries, and make greater efforts toward realizing mutual growth and peace on the Korean Peninsula.
