The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) is witnessing a significant boost in the output of dairy products as part of nationwide and all-encompassing efforts to implement the new childcare policy prioritized by the Workers' Party of Korea. The policy aims to enhance childcare conditions extensively, emphasizing the well-being of the nation's children, who represent the future, - KCNA reported.
DPRK Achieves Dairy Production Surge in Support of New Childcare Policy
Provinces, cities, and counties across the country are actively engaged in increasing the production of dairy products, leading to a rise in the number of dairy cattle nationwide. Notably, numerous cattle farms have been successfully established or renovated, creating expansive pastures covering tens of thousands of hectares. Concurrently, there is a notable increase in the overall output of dairy products.

The DPRK has installed around 2,000 pieces of milk powder production equipment nationwide, marking substantial progress in constructing hundreds of storehouses dedicated to dairy products with high hygienic standards. This concerted effort is aimed at establishing a robust production infrastructure capable of consistently providing quality and fresh dairy products to children.

In tandem with these developments, the state has implemented a well-organized supply system and order, ensuring the institutional support necessary for the effective implementation of the Party's childcare policy. Supply cards have been issued for all preschoolers, and meticulous steps have been taken to ensure that no child is excluded from the supply list.

With a paramount focus on implementing the Party's childcare policy, Korean children are experiencing enhanced health and well-being. A recent survey on children's growth at the end of the previous year revealed an overall boost in their immunity. The improvement in the health of rural children, in particular, is evident and on a positive trajectory.
