A new revolution in construction has been brought about throughout the country this year.

General Secretary Kim Jong Un, in the Fourth Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea and in his letter to the participants in the second grand short course of officials in the construction sector  "Let Us Lead the Development of Civilization of Our Own Style of Socialism by Waging a New Revolution in Construction", put forward a grand plan for bringing about a new revolution in construction to continue to carry on the heyday of the capital construction, open up a new age of local changes and radically improve the living environment of the people across the country in the coming 20-30 years.

He said that uphill are the tasks and many things are in short supply now, but we have neither right to hesitate nor ignore to do the work for attaining the people’s ideal nor time to wait until the conditions get better, stressing the need to give top priority to major construction in the economic affairs in 2022.

According to his grand plan, the ongoing housing construction projects made rapid progress, huge blasts were made in succession in February signaling the start of building 10 000 flats in the Hwasong area of Pyongyang and a large-scale greenhouse farm in the Ryonpho area on the shore of the East Sea of Korea, and local construction was pushed ahead with fresh vigour in all provinces, cities and counties.

First of all, architectural designs were created on the principle of giving the highest and absolute priority to the people’s aspirations and demands and convenience and ensuring ideological and artistic value and practicability perfectly to suit the people’s feelings and aesthetic tastes.

The Cabinet and relevant units supplied necessary materials and equipment to the construction projects in time and the whole population actively supported the major construction sites.

State measures were taken to readjust and reinforce construction enterprises, while the construction units built up their construction technical forces and material and technical foundations.

Scientists and technicians ensured scientific consistency of the whole construction processes from the excavation of foundations to the building of frameworks and the finishing works by formulating and developing new advanced design and construction methods.

The construction for the wellbeing of the people has never been interrupted even during the state emergency anti-epidemic campaign, which can be claimed to be the most serious disturbance ever since the founding of the DPRK.

The builders created new miracles in construction upholding the General Secretary’s instructions at the Eighth Political Bureau Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the WPK that the projects to fulfil the cherished desire of the Party for the people such as the construction of 10 000 flats in the Hwasong area and the Ryonpho Greenhouse Farm must be completed flawlessly within the set time.

Consequently, Songhwa Street was splendidly completed as the first product of the construction project for 50 000 flats in Pyongyang set forth at the Eighth Congress of the WPK, a distinctive terraced residential district was built on a scenic bank of the Pothong River in the capital city and an extensive greenhouse farm was constructed in an area of 280 hectares in the Ryonpho area of South Hamgyong Province this year.

Dwelling houses that suit the regional and geographical conditions rose up in succession in the rural areas of the country, delighting the local people.
