NK Rice Prices Fall Thanks to Food Aid: WFP
The Korea Times, October 11, 2004
The U.N. World Food Program (WFP) said in its emergency report issued over the weekend that the North Korean market price for rice fell as the latest shipment of South Korean rice aid arrived in North Korea and the communist country began harvesting maize.

The agency, however, did not reveal details about the price changes.

In an earlier emergency report issued on Aug. 13, the WFP said the cost of rice in North Korea had almost doubled, rising from 240 North Korean won to 500 won per kilogram.

According to South Korea's Bank of Korea, Pyongyang has set its official exchange rate for the North Korean won at 150 to one U.S. dollar, but the currency actually trades at 1,000 to one dollar in the black market.

On Thursday, Good Friends, a South Korean religious group which sends food aid to North Korea, said the price has been on the rise from 350 won per kilogram during the March-April period to 500 won in June, 800 won in August and 900 won in September.

The North's daily rationing of rice, meanwhile, stood at 300-350 grams per person in October, the WFP said.
