DPRK state media reported on 1 July (Monday) that Cabinet Premier Pak Pong Ju visited the Pyongyang Thermal Power Complex, a cooperative farm in Kangwo’n Province and an electric appliances factory.  Pak’s first visit was to the Pyongyang Electric Appliance Joint Venture Company, which was established in 2006 in cooperation with the Beijing Fu Xing Xiao Cheng Electronic Technology Stock Company [LTD].  Pak learned “in detail about the researches into the power management and production of different kinds of watt-hour meters” and held a “consultative meeting” which “discussed and took measures to improve the power industry system to meet the higher demands for power in the fields of the national economy and use electricity in an effective manner.”

Pak later visited the Pyongyang Thermal Power Complex.  While touring the power plant, he “spoke highly of the successes made by officials, technicians and workers of the complex who have replied to the Workers’ Party of Korea’s call with increased production of electricity” and he learned “in detail about the production and boiler operation.”  Pak held a meeting with managers and officials of the power plant “to stress the need to produce much more electricity and send it to fields of national economy so as to meet the demand for electricity in building an economic power.”  Pak Pong Ju also “called for meticulously organizing the management of equipment and technical control and increasing production.”  Pak also visited Mip’yo’ng Cooperative Farm in T’ongch’o’n County, Kangwo’n Province where he learned about its fertilization and cultivation activities.  According to KCNA, he “underscored the need to establish ring-shaped rotation production system to raise soil fertility, and radically increase grain production and thoroughly prevent crop and land damage by downpours.”
