Large-scale greenhouse farms have been built in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in recent years. The builders of the Jungphyong Vegetable Greenhouse Farm in North Hamgyong Province completed building 320 greenhouses, tree nursery and hundreds of dwelling houses in the area of 200 hectares in a little over a year.
The Jungphyong Vegetable Greenhouse Farm and the tree nursery were inaugurated on December 3, Juche 108(2019). An inaugural ceremony of the Ryonpho Greenhouse Farm in South Hamgyong Province was held on October 10 last year. The builders wonderfully built more than 850 greenhouses, over 1,000 dwelling houses and many other objects in more than 230 days.
The Ryonpho Greenhouse Farm has 100 hectares of area for production and tens of thousand tons of production capacity, in which the vegetable production has been put on a highly modern, intensive and industrial basis. Such reality was brought by a grand plan and wise leadership of the Workers' Party of Korea that intends to improve the people's diet by extensively building modern and profitable greenhouse farms. The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, General Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, confirmed on the spot the sites of the greenhouse farms to be built in the Jungphyong and Ryonpho areas and gave precious instructions on their construction. And he called at the construction sites several times for field guidance and was reported of the projects frequently, leading the construction energetically. Those large-scale greenhouse farms give benefits to the people.
It is an ambition and firm determination of the WPK to build such large-scale greenhouse farms across the country and thus make a substantial contribution to promoting the people's well-being and change our lives. The Sixth Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the WPK decided it as a major construction task this year to build a large-scale greenhouse farm in the Kangdong area of the capital Pyongyang. On February 15, Kim Jong Un took part in the ground-breaking ceremony for the construction of the Kangdong Greenhouse Farm and broke ground first to signal the start of the project. Large-scale greenhouse farms will continue to be built in the future according to the plan of the WPK, making a contribution to the promotion of the people's well-being.
