    Pyongyang, March 21 (KCNA) -- The construction of the Taean Friendship Glass Factory is progressing apace as a token of friendship between the peoples of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and China. The construction of the main production buildings including melting and foundry grounds has been carried out at 85 percent with the assembling of steel structures and auxiliary projects at 65 percent with the completion of the concrete tamping of the sand-selecting process building and the industrial water-purifying ground. And trees have been planted and roads paved in the compound.
    The construction is progressing as planned, though weather conditions are unfavourable, thanks to the efforts of servicepersons, builders and Chinese technicians to further develop the friendly bond provided by Chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK Kim Jong Il and President of the People's Republic of China Hu Jintao.
    The leading officials of the project, in close contact with the Chinese technicians, are promoting the construction in a scrupulous and qualitative way.
    The Chinese government has sent more than 8,000 tons of materials and equipment of several dozen kinds including steel structures, pipes for water supply and drainage and fire-bricks in four installments.
    Ministries, national institutions and other establishments have sent to the construction site large quantities of materials and goods needed for the project and the Chinese ambassador to the DPRK sent aid goods to the constructors some time ago.
    The related projects are also being pushed ahead. Now the fifty percent of the construction of the factory has been carried out.
