The DPRK achieved a great deal of success in economic construction despite trials and hardships in the first half of this year.
The goal for irrigation construction for this year has mainly been attained, the flames of the socialist patriotic movement for increasing coal production which were kindled in the South Phyongan provincial coalfield are spreading to all other sectors and units across the country, metallurgical and chemical industries are advancing in the van while exceeding their highly-set targets and the construction sector has continued to build structures bringing joy and confidence to the people.
The success has greatly encouraged the Korean people who are determined to make this year a year of long stride for the development of the national economy and inspired them to a greater victory.

Agricultural, land development and other sectors much affected by natural climate are taking measures with foresight to cope with calamitous abnormal weather.
In particular, top priority is given to talents and scientific and technological development, with the awareness that science and technology are the key to keeping up the spirit of new innovation, bold creation and steady advance and making dynamic progress.
