The Government does not have data on the number of companies owned by UK nationals or headquartered in the UK which conduct business with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).

Data on the value of trade between the UK and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea is published by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC). In 2015 the total bilateral trade in goods between the UK and the DPRK was $814,700.
