The Pyongyang City Festival of Science and Technology is a highly anticipated annual event that brings together the best and brightest minds from across the city to showcase their latest innovations and breakthroughs in technology and science. The 36th edition of the festival, which kicked off on March 9, has been organized by the Pyongyang City Committee of the General Federation of Science and Technology of Korea.
The theme for this year’s festival is “Traction of Science and Technology,” which reflects the ongoing efforts of scientists and technicians in the city to implement the resolutions of the Eighth Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea and the plenary meetings of the Party Central Committee. Through the festival, they hope to share and generalize their successes and experience with others in the field, thereby contributing to the overall economic development and improvement of people’s living standards in the capital city.
Participants at the festival include officials, technicians, skilled workers, and three-revolution team members from over 330 units in Pyongyang. They come together in a variety of forms, including presentations, exhibitions, forums, and exchanges of new technologies and products, to share their knowledge and expertise with one another.
The festival is a great opportunity for participants to showcase their latest ideas and developments. More than 850 valuable proposals, over 4,500 exhibits, and 5,000 high-tech and patent products are on display, highlighting the latest advances in fields such as IT, electronics, robotics, biotechnology, and materials science.
One of the key objectives of the festival is to foster collaboration and partnerships between different organizations and individuals in the city. By bringing together a diverse range of participants, the festival provides a platform for networking, sharing ideas, and exploring potential partnerships that could lead to new breakthroughs and innovations.
