The General Association of Korean
Residents in Japan
       The General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) was formed on May 25, Juche 44 (1955).
       Chongryon, a powerful organization of overseas citizens of the DPRK, has a close-knit organizational system, from the Central Standing Committee down to the local prefectural headquarters, chapters and branches.
       It has under its wing many organizations involving all sections of society-youth, women, traders and industrialists, educators, men of culture and religious men. It also has its own mass media, publishing houses, news agency, scientific, art and sports organizations and economic and trade organs.
       Chongryon publishes scores of periodicals and also translates the works of President
Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il and other books, and newspapers into several languages for distribution to different countries and regions throughout the world. It has set up a well-organized educational system ranging from kindergarten to university to provide a democratic, national education for tens of thousands of sons and daughters of Koreans in Japan at hundreds of schools at all levels.
