Ryonpho Greenhouse Farm – another gift of love given to our people by the motherly Party for the 77 th anniversary of the founding of the Workers’ Party of Korea on October 10, 2022.
In February last year, respected Comrade Kim Jong Un formulated a plan for building a greenhouse farm even at the cost of sacrificing a major military base, in order to maintain smooth production and supply of lush green vegetables for the people of Hamhung City and South Hamgyong Province who are playing a great role in the development of the economy and science and technology.
Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un energetically guided the construction project so that the construction be completed at the best level. He selected the building site for the farm amid the gritty wind. At the ground-breaking ceremony, he delivered a stirring speech inspiring the service personnel to the great construction and took up the first spade to signal the start of the construction.
It was the unwavering determination and will of our Party that it should never fail at any cost in delivering the promise made to the people and the work for the people’s welfare. Accordingly, the Ryonpho Greenhouse Farm was completed in a short time span of just 230 days and given as a gift to our people.
The greenhouse farm covers a production area of 100 jongbo with a production capacity of millions of tons. It is an up-to-date large-scale greenhouse farm that has put production process on a modern, scientific and commercial basis. The Ryonpho Greenhouse Farm, which has wonderfully emerged as the base of rural civilization of our own style, was not built because there was excess money and materials to spare or because the conditions and circumstances were favourable.
It is the brilliant crystallisation of love of people created by the energetic leadership of the Workers’ Party of Korea which makes every possible effort to take care of people more warmly and to best serve them even in the face of the worst national crisis in the true sense of the word, caused by the vicious stifling attempts of the hostile forces against the DPRK, a series of harsh natural disasters and unexpected malignant pandemic crisis.
Ryonpho Greenhouse is a great farming area which demonstrates the civilization of a new era: 850-odd hydroponic and soil hothouses which are modernized, intensified and industrialized, more than 1,000 dwelling houses of local characteristics, schools, cultural centres and leisure complexes are brought into perfect harmony by blocks, covering a wide area of 280 jongbo .
It is also the wealth of prosperity which perfectly embodies the political ideal of people-first principle and the Juche-based idea on architectural beauty, and a new revolutionary entity of socialist rural improvement.
When sounds of firing, screaming and moaning are getting higher in every part of the world due to the conflicts, civil wars, hunger and diseases, sounds of people’s joy, laughter and fireworks which herald fresh miracles and changes brought about day by day are reverberating through our country as an echo of victory in socialism.
Ryonpho Greenhouse – the world’s largest farm of hothouse vegetables – is the demonstration of the single-hearted unity firmly rallied around our Party, and also a dramatic event which fully displayed the might of the Juche-oriented, powerful and independent national economy.
Indeed, the miracle of Ryonpho, which was achieved by overcoming unprecedented difficulties, made our country stronger once again.
It will be recorded in the history of our country together with the red flag flying high in the sky of October, leaving a remarkable page in the history of our Party which applies the principle of prioritizing, respecting and loving people.
