DPRK's Effort to Solve Food Problem
Pyongyang, November 14 (KCNA) -- Today is the anniversary of the DPRK's entry into the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.

Since the DPRK was founded over six decades ago, it has made sustained efforts to attain food self-sufficiency.

Since its admission to the FAO in Juche 66 (1977) the DPRK has closely cooperated with the organization in its efforts for increasing food and agricultural production on a world-wide scale so as to improve the dietary life and eliminate starvation in each country.

Officials of ministries and national institutions did the first Friday-labor for this year on co-op fields. To begin with, the co-op farms throughout the country registered signal successes in the farming preparations such as producing and transporting compost, carpeting field with humus soil and repairing and readjusting of farm machines.

In particular, the continuous on-the-spot guidance of General Secretary Kim Jong Il to co-op farms including the Tongbong Co-op Farm in Hamju County, fertilizer and agrochemicals production bases, Wonsan University of Agriculture and others has served as a powerful driving force of the agricultural development.

The gasification projects in Namhung Youth Chemical Complex and Hungnam Fertilizer Complex which were visited by the leader show the firm will of the Korean people to solve food problem by themselves without fail by establishing a Juche-oriented fertilizer production method. Thanks to their will, a new agrochemicals production process has been built in the February 8 Vinalon Complex and a gigantic waterway stretched out across the Miru Plain.

The Korean people will certainly solve the food problem, the agricultural problem by surmounting the bottlenecks and difficulties lying on the way for increasing grain production and thus make a positive contribution to the building of a new peaceful and prosperous world.
