NORTH KOREA wants British consultants, contractors and investors to undertake a massive programme of infrastructure renewal and development.
North Korean officials last week met with representatives from the Department for Trade & Industry (DTI) and the British Consultants Bureau (BCB).
Sectors requiring investment are transport and particularly rail, oil and gas, energy, coal and mining, said BCB chief executive Colin Adams.
The DTI and BCB are organising a fact finding mission to capital Pyongyang in April.
Communist North Korea has recently been forging relations with the West after nearly five decades of total closure.
Adams said the country offered 'some amazing opportunities' for investment, but that careful negotiation would be needed to establish common ground for business.
