It is known that individual pine nuts and acorns were given to the residents of North Korea’s Ryanggang Province and North Hamgyong Province in the name of improving the people’s living standards.

A source from Ryanggang Province told Daily NK on the 13th, “The government has given pine nuts and acorns to various provinces in Yanggang Province and North Hamgyong Province, where there are abundant pine nut forests, saying that they are for people’s food production. This is significant,” he said.

North Korea is obliged to donate a considerable amount of pine nuts and acorns to each organization and generation every year to Ryanggang and North Hamgyong provinces, where there are many pine and acorn forests.

The source said, “The government is not afraid of the opportunity to suppress smuggling and exports and send its own raw materials to the food production bases necessary for the people’s livelihood, saying that harvesting in rural areas is important and harvesting all the people who ripen the golden fruits in the mountains is also important. I gave you an order to secure it,” he said.

In particular, in the current situation where the export of pine nuts is restricted due to the border closure caused by the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19), North Korea said that the planned amount should be increased. It is said that the planned amount was increased.

It is said that North Korea has put forward the condition that individuals can be allocated individual pine pine forest land the following year only if they plan well this year.

A source said, “From the first year of elementary school, the task of donating more than 6 kg of pine nuts and more than 10 kg of acorns per person by age has come down. In the case of the case, the planned amount was reduced to 20 kg of pine nuts and 30 kg of acorns per person.

In response, the residents said, “It is not a burden for each generation, but an enormous amount of planning from children to adults is an individual share,” the source said.

On the other hand, North Korea is not only in cities and counties with many pine and acorn forests in Ryanggang Province and North Hamgyong Province, but also in other cities and counties with few forest land, such as Hamhung City in South Hamgyong Province and Pyongsong City in South Pyongan Province. passed on
