Choe visited Taecho’ng-ri in Unp’a County and “congratulated the owners of the new dwelling houses and asked the householders grateful for the great loving care shown by Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un (Kim Cho’ng-u’n) to uphold our Party and defend socialism with increased rice production”  Choe “stressed the need for the officials of Party committee and people’s committee of the county to always go deep among the people, share weal and woe with them, turn the villages into places good to live and glorify the Party’s leadership feats.”

He also visited Samjigang-ri in Jaeryong County and “called for planting lots of fruit trees and land-creeping plants around the houses and in the village true to the requirements of the Party policies to facelift the farm and to brilliantly realize the Party’s grand plan for rural reconstruction.”  Choe Ryong Hae also went to agricultural units near Sariwo’n and “asked the farm officials and workers to carry out thrashing as planned by increasing the operating ratio of farm machines including thrashers and thus successfully conclude this year’s farming.”
