New villages have sprung up in the Komdok area of South Hamgyong Province, promising the bright future of the miners’ town.

Single-, low- and multi-storey dwelling houses for some 2 300 families, public buildings and parks have been built in the mountain gorge, the Komdok area, in which everything was submerged in muddy water and buried under piles of stones due to the natural disaster and the damage was so severe that even owners couldn’t recognize their houses.

The complete change which has taken place in the area is the bright fruition brought by the passionate loving care and dedication of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un who values and cares much about the workers and valuable achievements made by the fighting spirit and stamina of the People’s Army that removes the worries of the Workers’ Party and relieves the sufferings of the people with loyal and patriotic devotion.

Meetings for moving into new houses took place in the mining villages and the people began to move into new homes which have been wonderfully built in the area.

Choe Hwi, vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, Kim Pong Yong, chairman of the South Hamgyong Provincial People’s Committee, Kim Yong Hak, vice-chairman of the South Hamgyong Provincial Committee of the WPK, officials concerned and commanding officers of the units involved in the construction visited the families that moved into the new houses to congratulate them.

The working people who became owners of the new villages offered thanks to the WPK and the state for their great concern and care.

They expressed their firm resolve to glorify the 80-day campaign with increased production of minerals and greet the Eighth Congress of the WPK with proud achievements.
