DPRK state media reported on 12 November (Tuesday) that Premier Pak Pong Ju  was briefed about agricultural threshing machinery and visited the Kiwso’ng Saltern.  Pak was briefed about rice threshing machines developed by the Academy of Agricultural Science’s Institute of Agricultural Mechanization.  Pak “called for making high-efficiency rice threshers suited to the specific conditions of the country.”  He also toured the Kwisong Saltern where “scientists and technicians discovered a huge pool of underground ultra-saline water of great economic value, thereby opening up a prospect of drastically increasing salt production.”  After his tour Pak Pong Ju convened a meeting at which he consulted with the saltern’s managers and employees “to discuss increasing production based on newly explored salt resources.”  According to KCNA, “it was mentioned at the meeting that the successful exploration of the underground ultra-saline water under the wise guidance of Marshal Kim Jong Un (Kim Cho’ng-u’n) will make it possible to carry out the last instructions of President Kim Il Sung (Kim Il-so’ng) and leader Kim Jong Il (Kim Cho’ng-il) to put the salt production on an intensive basis.”  The meeting “highlighted the significance of the underground ultra-saline water in improving the people’s livelihood and developing the economy, and discussed issues for boosting the salt production” and it “discussed measures for providing raw and other materials needed for the production by relevant units.”
