Pyongyang, November 12 (KCNA) -- Premier Pak Pong Ju made a field survey of Kwisong Saltern.

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 going round several places of the saltern, the premier convened a consultative meeting of officials of relevant units to discuss increasing production based on newly explored salt resources.

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 will make it possible to carry out the last instructions of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il to put the salt production on an intensive basis.

The meeting also 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.

The meeting also discussed measures for providing raw and other materials needed for the production by relevant units.

Earlier, the premier learned about the introduction of rice thresher manufactured by the Institute of Agricultural Mechanization of the Academy of Agricultural Science and called for making high-efficiency rice threshers suited to the specific conditions of the country.
