In November last year a workers’ hostel and a welfare facility were built for the employees of the Sinuiju Textile Mill in the seat of North Phyongan Province.
The hostel providing accommodation for over 700 people stands on the bank of the Amnok River, and the welfare facility is called Pangjik (textile in Korean) Health Complex.
When the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un visited the mill in June 2018, he learned in detail about its production and also the living conditions of the workers. Saying he was told that the hostellers of the mill were so envious of the hostels at the Pyongyang Kim Jong Suk Textile Mill and Pyongyang Kim Jong Suk Silk Mill provided by the Party, he promised them a hostel as wonderful as those in Pyongyang. Then he personally appointed a site for the hostel and sent a powerful construction force.
The newly-erected hostel and health complex have a total floor space of 29 000m2. The hostel consists of three buildings furnished with bedrooms, a dining hall, and rooms for book-reading and medical treatment. And the health complex has a swimming pool, fitness room, beauty parlour and other facilities for providing the workers with convenience.
Every night the brightly-lit windows of the hostel resound with merry laughter and singing of the girls.
