According to Daily NK Pyongyang City sources on the 24th, the Pyongyang City Party Executive Committee approved the No. ), and measures such as movement of rice factories were put in place, and they began to be implemented from the 20th.

The Gangan Attic Housing District in Gyeongru-dong, Jung-gu, Pyongyang was completed in April last year with a capacity of 800 households. It is also called a luxury housing complex because it is located in Jung-gu, also called a rich village, in Pyongyang, and it is along the first line road connecting the headquarters of the Party Central Committee and Mansudae Street and along the Pottong River.

It is explained that this is mainly for people subject to Policy No. 1 or the core class who have contributed to the development of the country, so special consideration measures have been taken in the name of improving their lives.

Pyongyang City first issued an order to ensure electricity supply by supplying electricity for 18 hours to the dongs right next to the 1st road, and gradually reducing electricity to the other dongs. Unlike South Korea, there is a limit on 24-hour electricity supply in North Korea, so North Koreans say that guaranteeing electricity at the state level is a kind of privilege.

In addition, Pyongyang City has established a system in which laundry houses in Jung District receive laundry from residents of Gyeongnu-dong Gangan Attic 2-3 times a week, wash it, and return it to them.

In addition, a mobile service project was organized in which rice factories in Jung-gu district rotated and sold rice, side dishes, soup, etc. at 4-5 a.m. and 6-8 p.m. .

The source said that Gyeongnu-dong, which was built last year, does not yet have a laundry house or a rice factory, so the district stepped up to mobilize a laundry house and a rice factory for the convenience of residents living in the attic residential area.

The source said, “Of course, the response (from the residents of the Gangan attic housing district) is good, especially the residents who are office workers.” Even in the middle of the day, they say that it is divided like the central and the provinces,” he said.

Meanwhile, volunteers at the laundry house and rice factory in Jung-gu, who are currently taking part in the special consideration measures to improve the lives of residents of Gangan Attic in Gyeongnu-dong, cannot access the Gangan Attic residential area outside of the access hours designated by the People’s Committee of Pyongyang City. are known to be controlled by As it is an ultra-luxurious housing complex, it seems to have a thorough security system.
