In July Juche 107(2018), the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, with a plan to have a large-scale vegetable greenhouse farm built in Jungphyong-ri, Kyongsong County, North Hamgyong Province, inspected the area where it would be built, before setting forth a far-sighted plan for its construction.
Seeing the vast fertile land, he said that it would be wonderful when a 100-hectare vegetable greenhouse farm was built there, and that such an area would fully satisfy the needs of the provincial people. He added he was very pleased when he did something worthwhile for the people one by one.
As it is a gigantic vegetable farm construction project, the first of its kind in the country, the Korean People’s Army should take full charge of it and finish it at a lightning speed, he said. He underscored the need to ensure construction speed and quality at the same time and build it on the highest level as it was a farm the Party was going to have built with determination by making investment unsparingly for the people in North Hamgyong Province.
He called for building also farmers’ residential quarters and cultural and welfare facilities in a modern and cultured way so that the farm village could be a model in the construction of the socialist rural culture, a socialist paradise, good to live and work in.
In August, Kim Jong Un came to the spot again to acquaint himself with the preparations for the construction of the Onpho Greenhouse Farm.
Given the huge area of the farm, he noted, it is needed to turn the area into one that embodies the Party’s people-oriented and patriotic policies by setting up a modern tree nursery as well, which was similar to that of the Kangwon Provincial Tree Nursery.
He underscored the need to deeply study the world’s trend of science and technology and advanced sci-tech materials on greenhouse farming so as to work out the most reasonable plan that would suit the specific conditions of the country and build the greenhouse farm at the highest level.
He said that the province should give priority to building up the ranks of the farm management personnel, technicians and employees alongside the construction of the greenhouse farm and tree nursery so as to prepare them to start production and operation immediately after the completion of the project.
