DPRK state media reported on 6 June (Thursday) that DPRK Cabinet Premier Pak Pong Ju visited the Migok Cooperative Farm  and toured the renovation work at Mirim Riding Club.  Pak’s first visit was to the Migok Cooperative Farm in Sariwo’n, the provincial capital of North Hwanghae Province.  He toured part of the cooperative farm and held a meeting with farm managers and employees.  According to KCNA, the meeting “discussed issues of conducting agricultural production and business activities on the principle of arousing enthusiasm of farmers to the maximum.”

Pak Pong Ju also toured the renovation and construction work at the Mirim Riding Club (formerly known as the equestrian company of Korean People’s Army [KPA] Unit #534) in east Pyongyang.  The equestrian grounds are under renovation by KPA construction personnel.  Pak “learned in detail about its construction and supply of raw materials” and held a meeting with construction and design personnel which “underlined the need to rapidly finish frame structure to suit seasonable conditions” and “took measures to supply necessary materials and fuel as scheduled and increase production to the maximum at material producing units.”
