DPRK state media reported on 26 October (Saturday) that Cabinet Premier Pak Pong Ju visited a cooperative farm and the construction South Hwanghae Provincial Mushroom Farm.  Pak first toured the Jangsong Cooperative Farm in Ongjin County.  He held a meeting with the farm’s managers and employees which, according to KCNA, “underscored the need for agricultural workers to finish the threshing in good time by gathering all crops without any waste as befitting masters responsible for the nation’s agricultural production and by operating threshing machines in full capacity” and “called on the relevant units to satisfactorily supply electricity necessary for farms and took measures for meticulously organizing and commanding transport and carrying procured grains in time.” Pak also visited the construction of the South Hwanghae Provincial Mushroom Farm.  According to KCNA Pak said that the “construction of the farm is a patriotic work to implement the behests of President Kim Il Sung (Kim Il-so’ng) and leader Kim Jong Il (Kim Cho’ng-il) who worked heart and soul to provide the people with tasty nutritious mushroom and the noble intention of Marshal Kim Jong Un (Kim Cho’ng-u’n)” and  Pak “took measures to ensure quality in construction and complete it in a short span of time.”

    I think I’m beginning to see a pattern here. Premier Pak Pong Ju was brought back into office in April. He made field surveys to farms on July 31; October 15; and this one on October 26. He also made a field survey on August 24 to a fertilizer plant and to a factory that makes plastic panels for greenhouses. If I recall correctly, Pak Pong Ju was ousted in 2007 because he tried to guide DPRK agriculture along “the China Path” instead of the Juche Ideal. It goes without saying that Marshal Kim Jong Un is determined there will be no food shortages on his watch. No kids going hungry. (The man clearly likes kids) Who better to make sure this happens than a bureaucrat who was kicked to the curb because he was trying to do a good job? To my way of thinking, this says a lot about the character of Marshal Kim. Put the best man on the case and watch him get results.
