The state has myriads of important construction projects for the future development of the country.

However, as the Workers’ Party of Korea emphasized once again at the Fifth Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea held last June, the Party and government continue to press on with the building of dwelling houses for the people as one of the major priority construction projects.

The houses are to be provided to working people for free like modern flats on Mirae Scientists, Ryomyong and Songhwa streets and in the Pothong Riverside Terraced Houses District.

Dwelling houses for the people are built as a major project according to the supreme principle the WPK adheres to in its activities.

The supreme principle in its activities is to constantly improve the material and cultural life of them.

Accordingly, the WPK orients all affairs including the formulation of line and policies toward meeting their demands, serving their interests and enhancing their well-being to the utmost.

House construction is a very important undertaking directly connected to the people’s living standards.

Without their own home, even rich persons cannot be said to lead a settled life.

That is why, although the country was faced with greater challenges and more formidable obstacles than ever before, the WPK decided at its Eighth Congress and the Second Plenary Meeting of its Eighth Central Committee on building 50 000 flats in Pyongyang while pushing ahead with the construction of dwelling houses across the country in the period of the five-year plan and on completing 10 000 flats each year.

Therefore, the DPRK steadily goes on with house construction under the leadership of the WPK even in the face of constant sanctions by hostile forces and successive natural disasters and at the time of health crisis that can be said to be a great turmoil unprecedented in its history.

Construction projects are being carried on for 10 000 flats in the capital city, other dwelling houses in the Komdok area, a leading nonferrous mineral production base of the country, and those in rural areas that began to be built in earnest this year.

Powerful construction forces were already formed, units of the building-materials industry across the country produce and supply materials needed for the housing projects on a preferential basis, and designs are produced and building operations are carried on in a qualitative way to satisfy the demands of the people at the highest level.

Looking at modern and magnificent streets and new houses taking shape, the Koreans further deepen their trust for the WPK, which regards making selfless, devoted efforts for the good of the people as the mode of its existence and revolutionary traits, and faithfully follow its leadership.
