President of State Affairs Kim Jong Un attends commissioning ceremony of Kangdong General Greenhouse Farm
  The world's biggest vegetable farm has been successfully built and inaugurated in the Kangdong area of Pyongyang, the capital city of the DPRK, at a stirring time when a new world of socialist cultural efflorescence and a new era of grandiose changes--the Korean people's long-cherished ideal--is being brought under the guidance of the great Party Central Committee.
  The Kangdong General Greenhouse Farm, where vegetable production is put on an advanced intelligent and intensive footing with its modernity, culture and practical efficiency surely guaranteed, is a monumental edifice born of the political idea of believing in the people as in Heaven and the spirit of making selfless, devoted efforts for the good of the people of the Workers' Party of Korea that lavishes funds on promoting the rights, interests and wellbeing of the people, regarding it as the most important state affair, and a model entity representing the country's rapid development.
  The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un unveiled a far-reaching plan for building a number of modern greenhouse farms in different parts of the country, even made sure that important military bases were dismantled for greenhouse farms, and has put his heart and soul into their construction. He unfolded a blueprint for building a large-scale greenhouse farm in the Kangdong area at the Sixth Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the WPK and energetically guided the whole process of the building project.
  The service personnel of the Korean People's Army, who responded with single-minded loyalty to the special order of the Party Central Committee, successfully built a new-generation general greenhouse farm whose size and production capacity are much bigger than the Ryonpho Greenhouse Farm, public buildings and terraced dwelling houses harmonizing with the surrounding natural landscape in a matter of one year with their strong offensive spirit and mettle of Korean-style creation, thus laying out a fairyland-like "greenhouse town", "farm town" in the suburbs of the capital.
  The spectacular Kangdong General Greenhouse Farm with modern greenhouses of peculiar styles, including a cylindrical greenhouse for vegetable cultivation and a dome-shaped glass hydroponic greenhouse, will produce and supply various kinds of vegetables to the citizens of Pyongyang.
  A commissioning ceremony of the Kangdong General Greenhouse Farm was held with splendor on March 15.
  Kim Jong Un, General Secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and President of the State Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, attended the ceremony together with leading cadres of the Party and the government.
  The venue of the event, where the birth of the large-scale greenhouse vegetable production base would be declared to add another brilliant page to the new era of comprehensive national rejuvenation being dynamically opened up by the WPK, a great motherly party which takes warm care of the people's happiness and destiny, was full of great emotion and joy of the participants.
  All the participants in the event were waiting for the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, a great guide and artist of epochal changes who glorifies the country where the people's desire is realized as an ideal one under socialism, as befitting its prestige and status as a power, with his untiring efforts and devotion.
  When Kim Jong Un and his beloved daughter arrived at the venue of the ceremony amid the playing of welcome music, all the participants broke into stormy cheers of "Hurrah!".
  All the participants enthusiastically cheered, looking up to Kim Jong Un, the pioneer of great change and the great artist of creation.
  Present at the ceremony were Premier Kim Tok Hun, Member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK, and secretaries of the Central Committee of the WPK, officials of armed forces organs, ministries, national agencies and Pyongyang Municipality, soldier-builders and officials and employees of the Kangdong General Greenhouse Farm and Pyongyangites.
  The national anthem of the DPRK was solemnly played.
  Ri Il Hwan, Member of the Political Bureau and Secretary of the Central Committee of the WPK, made a commissioning speech.
  The speaker said the farm, the third proud creation in the history of building modern greenhouse farms in the new era ushered in by the Party, has been successfully built in a matter of one year and its significant inauguration would be declared. He pointed out that the completion of its building project and the start of full-scale vegetable production, which will greatly contribute to bettering the citizens' diet, constitute another successful fruition of the gigantic creative struggle which the Party determined and has put big efforts to for the good of the people, and an inspiring event that convinces them of bigger and new successes this year when the whole country makes leaps forward for development and change.
  He stressed that the commissioning of the greenhouse farm vividly represents the boundless pride of creating new things in our own way so that we wouldn't envy others and a substantial change that has reached the people, not by lip service and wishful thinking but by a reality, and at the moment, not in the distant future.
  Upon authorization by the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un, the speaker extended warm thanks and congratulations to the service personnel and all other builders who successfully built the Kangdong General Greenhouse Farm as the people's wealth adding luster to our era and fully demonstrated the absolute advantages and inexhaustible vitality of Korean-style creation with the steadfast spirit of devotedly implementing the Party's resolutions and through indomitable and strenuous struggle.
  He recalled that the respected General Secretary Kim Jong Un, who had always cherished and matured the idea of supplying fresh vegetables to the citizens of the capital all the year round, along with the construction of 50,000 flats in Pyongyang Municipality, as important plans in his mind, had planned and energetically led the construction of a greenhouse farm for the citizens of Pyongyang since he opened up a bright prospect for building modern greenhouse farms all over the country. The Kangdong General Greenhouse Farm is a precious socialist asset born of the warm sincerity and wise leadership of the General Secretary, who devotes his all to promoting the people's well-being only, he stressed.
  He said that the modern, advanced, convenient and unique greenhouses and one thousand and hundreds of dwelling houses at the farm are associated with the devoted efforts made by the soldier-builders who dedicated their pure conscience and efforts to every process and every part of construction displaying the irresistible might of the Korean People's Army out of their absolute loyalty to the leader, and by the families of service members who added to militant enthusiasm of the officers and men staying overnight at the construction site in hot summer and cold winter.
  The speaker referred to the intense loyalty and devoted efforts made by the scientists and technicians who studied and introduced an intelligent integrated production system for actively controlling the production environment and process and various new technologies in conformity with the actual conditions of our country while continuing tireless inquiries with extraordinary creative spirit, citizens who carried out river improvement and greening, and officials and working people of ministries, national agencies and relevant units who provided planned materials and equipment in a responsible manner.
  He said that our own way and strength are a fundamental guarantee for building up wonders, rare to be found in other parts of the world, at will and that when all the people work hard in the high spirit displayed in the general greenhouse farm construction, the day when the whole country prospers and the people enjoy an affluent and civilized life would be brought earlier. He ardently called upon all the people to make firm and courageous advance toward a new great victory in 2024 that will witness another change and progress and toward eternal prosperity of the beloved country.
  The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un made a significant address encouraging the service personnel of the KPA who successfully built the Kangdong General Greenhouse Farm to realize another cherished desire of the Party.
  He made the following speech of encouragement:
 Dear officers and men of the air force units,
 Teaching staff and cadets of military academies at different levels,
 You have taken much trouble indeed.
 As we see today, you have built in a matter of a year this advanced and splendid asset at a miraculous speed. I cannot find enough words to express my gratitude to you and my happiness.
 The traces of your hard-fought struggle in this transformed Kangdong area have already disappeared.
 However, your staunch revolutionary spirit, outstanding wisdom and strenuous efforts buried under this creation will live as a model for the coming generations, I believe.
 Seeing it, everyone will say that something has been created from nothing.
 You have set up a large creation as a present for the people in the place that bears the imprints of your military service and militant feats.
 Whereas all the challenges and difficulties facing the state are our army’s primary targets for annihilation, the accomplishing of the cherished desires of our Party and people is its first goal to attain.
 This is the invariable essential nature of our army.
 Heroic officers and men of our army who are always thoroughgoing and powerful in defending the state and the people and legendary and almighty in creating the wealth of the country and the happiness of the people,
 As it has always been with you, you are just given the priceless honour of leading the effort to effect a world of transformation in the coming years, a world which our ideals and our style of creative struggle will surely lead to.
 Officers and men,
 Let us continue to advance and achieve victory, singing the song of creators under the uplifted banner of defenders.
 Availing myself of this opportunity, I, on behalf of our Party and government, once again extend thanks to our laudable and heroic army.
 Thank you."
  When the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un finished his address, stormy cheers of "Hurrah!" raised by all the participants resounded across the sky of March.
  All the soldier-builders, who received the deepest trust and the highest honor from the great Party Central Committee, were filled with enthusiasm to add luster to the noble prestige of the ever-victorious heroic army and genuine people's army at the outpost of the sacred struggle for accelerating the comprehensive development of our thriving nation by steadily giving full play to the fighting spirit and creative mettle displayed in the construction of the Kangdong General Greenhouse Farm.
  The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un cut the tape for commissioning of the farm.
  Fireworks were set off to the sky above the venue filled with surging excitement as a witness to a touching scene to be recorded in the great journey of devotion to the people.
  Kim Jong Un waved back to the soldier-builders and other people enthusiastically cheering for a long time.
  The great persons of guidance, together with cadres of the Party, the government and the military, went round the farm.
  Kim Jong Un visited greenhouses of different types to learn in detail about the advanced technical devices for cultivating greenhouse vegetables domestically introduced for the first time, their economic efficiency and technical features.
  He expressed great satisfaction over the highly intensive, optimized and intelligent production processes to be operated by our own efforts and technology with world-level insight.
  He said that new sphere and level of greenhouse vegetable production have been pioneered thanks to the completion of the plot- and labor-saving general greenhouse farm which guarantees radical increase in productivity in comparison with the conventional cultivation method while providing the growth environment of various kinds of tasty and nutritious vegetables in a scientific and balanced way. He added that the eye-opening change in the Kangdong area is an epitome of the worthwhile struggle of creation of our own style growing intense in the spirit of self-reliance and self-existence.
  To expand the proud successes and experience gained in the construction of the general greenhouse farm, which will serve as another great engine for improving the people's living standard, is the sacred work for further enriching and beautifully cultivating the new socialist life, he said, giving precious instructions for accelerating the large-scale modern greenhouse farm construction on a nationwide scale and surely turning the vegetable production into a creation-oriented industry.
