Visit to Renowned Fruit Producer in South Hwanghae Province
Kim Jong Un, Chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, Chairman of the State Affairs Commission    of the DPRK and Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army, visited South Hwanghae Province’s Kwail County, one of the country’s leading fruit producers.

Officials and workers of the county have made a miraculous achievement of increasing the per-hectare yield 2.5 times as against last year, particularly 5.8 times for apple, even in the face of persisting drought and high temperatures.

The Supreme Leader shook hands with every local official, saying they took much trouble to produce a rich crop in the teeth of harsh natural disasters. He highly appreciated the efforts of the county officials and working people, saying they have truthfully demonstrated the validity of the Party policy by devoting their heart and soul to fruit farming in the first year for the implementation of the decision of the Seventh Party Congress.

He looked round the county revolutionary museum and the hall dedicated to the history of the county.

Then he dropped in at the Pomology Institute.

And he climbed onto a platform to feast his eyes on the overall view of the county fields before making his way to orchards.

Touching each apple on heavily laden branches, he said this points to “so many fruits hanging in clusters that ground gives under them”. It is tremendous that many work-teams have reportedly registered a per-hectare yield of 70 to 80 tons, he said, adding it is amazing that each tree bears 200 apples on average, and 300 at the most.

He called the county a pacesetter and role model for the entire country to follow in the efforts to carry out the decision of the Seventh Party Congress, and gave it thanks in his capacity of the Chairman of the WPK, plus special bonus.

He specified important tasks to be tackled by the county, emphasizing that it should build on this year’s success to make further progress.

He was accompanied by Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Committee, vice-chairman of the DPRK State Affairs Commission and director of the KPA General Political Bureau, and other senior officials.
