New Year's Production on Increase in DPRK
Pyongyang, January 7 (KCNA) -- Upon receiving the New Year Address given by Marshal Kim Jong Un, officials and workers of different economic sectors have made big efforts to boost production from the beginning of this year.

Officials and workers in the field of agriculture produced hundreds of thousands tons of organic fertilizer as part of full preparations for this year's farming.

The Chollima Steel Complex has steadily increased steel production. And workers in various units of the complex, including the Posan Iron Works and ferroalloy shop, are keeping equipment in full operation, thus supplying on a regular basis raw and other materials needed for steel production.

The production is also going up at the Kim Chaek Iron and Steel Complex and the Hwanghae Iron and Steel Complex.

The Musan Mining Complex successfully blasted 350 000 cubic meters of earth in an effort to provide iron and steel mills with more concentrated ore.

Pyongyang, Kaechon, Hamhung, Chongjin, Rason and other railway bureaus overfulfilled their quota for the New Year's Day at 104.8 percent.

The daily coal output of the February 8 Jikdong Youth Coal Mine is 1.5 times higher than the same period of last year.

The employees of the Pyongyang Kim Jong Suk Silk Mill topped their first workday's plan at 130 percent.

Blastings of 70 000 and 30 000 cubic meters of earth were successfully carried out in North Phyongan Province by its provincial tideland reclamation complex.

Meanwhile, people in South Hwanghae Province are pushing forward with the construction of a waterway project.
