Korean Central News Agency of DPRK via Korea News Service (KNS)

    Pyongyang, March 16 (KCNA) -- The Taean Friendship Glass Factory which is under construction amid the deep concern of the peoples and builders of the DPRK and China has begun to show its imposing appearance. Builders and technicians of the two countries have dynamically pushed forward the construction of the factory in a little more than eight months since the successful blasting involving one million cubic meters of earth.
    As many as 1.2 million cubic meters of earth has been moved to bring into shape the building lot extending more than 200,000 square meters. And workshops of the factory have vied with each other in springing up.
    The builders completed the assembling of the steel structures of the melting and moulding shops earlier than schedule. Then they wound up the assembling of the steel trusses of the moulding shop, and are now speeding up the concrete tamping of the groundwork of the slow-cooling shop and goods stores at the final stage.
    With the fast progress of the construction of the main production building, which may be called the heart of the factory, a definite prospect has opened for an earlier completion of the overall construction.
    The builders in charge of the subsidiary system have completed in high quality the concrete tamping of the skeletons of the sand-screening system including the sediment basin, the circulating water pond and the silico-sand pumping station. They are now pushing ahead with the construction of the industrial water purification ground.
    Soldier builders have set about the construction of the garnet and soda storehouses after successively winding up the concrete tamping of the skeleton of the sand-screening system and the building of the rail roadbed.
    Going along with the construction of the factory are the building of roads in its compound and tree-planting. Thousands of trees of good species have already been planted and roads are stretching in and around the factory compound.
