In the DPRK big efforts have been paid to the reclamation of Honggondo, Ryongmaedo and Ansok tidelands.

The project for reclaiming Honggondo Tideland is progressing apace to obtain thousands of hectares of new land by linking islands in the waters off Sonchon.

The North Phyongan Provincial Tideland Reclamation Enterprise carried out the first dam construction in the first district of the second-phase project at over 90 percent.

For the reclamation of Ryongmaedo Tideland, the South Hwanghae Provincial Tideland Reclamation Enterprise has sped up the construction of 5 000 meter-long main dyke after smoothly ensuring the blasting for blowing up 30 000 and 50 000 cubic meters of earth.

The South Phyongan Provincial Tideland Reclamation Enterprise in charge of the project for reclaiming Ansok Tideland built 3 000 meter-long tide embankment by removing more than 200 000 cubic meters of earth and paving with stones 30 000 square meters of embankment in over 30 days.
