A large-scale Hwangju-Kindung waterway project kicked off.
The project is of great significance in boosting grain production in North Hwanghae Province. It is a gigantic nature-harnessing project for fully providing irrigation water to the Hwangju-Kindung Plain by building hundreds-of-kilometre-long gravitational waterway.
The waterway builders successfully conducted the blasting of 100 000 cubic metres of earth on June 2.
Vice-premier Ko In Ho, minister of Agriculture, and other officials concerned of North Hwanghae Province directed the blasting.
