The Eighth Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea set forth the five-year strategy for national economic development between 2021 and 2025.

During the period, housing construction will be conducted extensively to provide the people with a more civilized life.

It is a popular policy of our Party and state to build houses at the state expense.

In the 2010s, a lot of houses were built amid the concern of the respected Supreme Leader

Kim Jong Un

, General Secretary of the WPK.

Changjon Street was inaugurated in Juche 101(2012), Unha Scientists Street in Juche 102(2013), Wisong Scientists Residential District in Juche 103(2014), Mirae Scientists Street in Juche 104(2015) and Ryomyong Street in Juche 106(2017). After all, one street was built almost every year.

And new houses were built in different parts of the country including the farm city in the Jangchon area of Pyongyang City, Samjiyon City, a modern mountain city, in Ryanggang Province, the village at the Jungphyong Vegetable Greenhouse Farm in North Hamgyong Province, the rural village in the area of the Yangdok Hot Spring Resort in South Phyongan Province and the Tanphung fishing village on the shore of the East Sea of Korea.

Last year when everything was difficult, all people turned out as one to the struggle for recovery from natural disasters and built new houses for over 20,000 families in different parts of the country. 

In the period of the five-year strategy for national economic development between 2021 and 2025, efforts will be concentrated on the construction of 50,000 houses in Pyongyang City, 10,000 houses every year, starting from this year.

In the Komdok area of South Hamgyong Province 25,000 houses will be built during five years. Five years later, the Komdok area will be changed into the world's only mining town and the gorge town unprecedented in history.
