The 9-BRIDGE Strategy is aimed at simultaneously pushing ahead with cooperation projects across nine sectors (gas, railways, ports, power generation, North Pole Route, shipbuilding, agriculture, fisheries, and industrial complex)
9-BRIDGE: Power generation
Building the Northeast Asian Super Grid, a wide-area power grid designed to connect ROK, China, Mongolia, Japan, and Russia and share electricity using renewable energy sources, etc.
Reducing logistics costs by boosting transportation via the Trans-Siberian Railway (TSR) and connecting TSR and the Trans-Korean Railway in the future
9-BRIDGE: North Pole Route
Developing the North Pole Route into a new logistics route to promote its commercial use and preempt the Arctic Ocean market
North Pole Route
Creating a marine product complex in Russia’s Maritime Province and securing a stable supply of marine products through the expansion of fishing quotas
Diversifying gas import channels by importing more LNG from Russia and connecting gas pipelines between ROK, North Korea, and Russia in the future
Modernizing and constructing ports in the Far East, such as the Port of Zarubino
Building ice-breaking LNG carriers for polar travel and constructing shipyards
Expanding ROK-Russia agricultural cooperation by engaging in seed development, cultivation technique research, etc.
9-BRIDGE: Industrial complex
Creating an industrial complex in Russia’s Maritime Province through ROK-North Korea-Russia cooperation
