Entry Description

Chollima Steelworks Complex remains one of North Korea's most important industrial facilities to this day; synonymous with the drive to rebuild the country in the years following the Korean war. North Koreans are enormously proud of this place as it represents the self reliance of the country. Propaganda art mural slogans encourage productivity. The number 200 in the images refers to the Government’s current productivity drive campaign, which involves all workers in factories to work continuously for 200 days.
