DPRK state media reported on 6 October (Saturday) that Director of the Korean People’s Army [KPA] General Political Department, VMar Choe Ryong Hae, inspected several ongoing construction projects in and around Pyongyang.  KCNA reported that Choe visited the Mangyo’ngdae Funfair, Taeso’ngsan Funfair, the Fitness Center on T’ongil Street and the Mansugyo Soft Drink Shop where he “learned in detail about the progress made in the projects” and “encouraged the soldier-builders who are dynamically pushing ahead with the projects by giving full play to the mettle and spirit of the revolutionary army which carries out whatever regarded as impossible in hearty response to the order of Supreme Commander of the KPA Kim Jong Un.”

Choe also visited the Hapjang River improvement project.  On 4 October (Thursday) KCNA reported that the project “includes removal of sludge, embankment improvement and repair of structures.”  According to KCNA “servicepersons already cleared out 75 percent of sludge in the river in two days after the start of the project.”  During his visit to Hapjang River, Choe Ryong Hae “called on the service persons to complete it in the spirit of ‘at one go’ at the same speed as they finished in the main the dredging in a matter of a few days.”
