On March 23, 10,000 houses in Pyongyang, North Korea, suddenly started to lay the foundation at the same time. This made North Korea’s welfare housing allocation policy suddenly come into the eyes of netizens around the world.
So, what is unique about the housing policy of North Korea, which is keen on welfare housing allocation?
01. Free housing on tall buildings
The most straightforward way to understand North Korea’s housing allocation policy is to take a walk-and-go trip.
Thus, the North Korean tourist group came into being. Unlike the free activities that often occur in group tours elsewhere, in North Korea, all tourists must always follow the tour guide and follow the prescribed route. Even private photos and video are strictly restricted.
For example, some statues and picture albums are sacred objects that cannot be photographed at will. Fortunately, houses in North Korea are not on the taboo list. This also makes the houses lined up on both sides of the Datong River a unique landscape in the photo album of tourists.
The director on the side saw the tourists taking pictures and couldn’t help but excitedly introduced: “This is the Future Scientist Street Community, which is a free housing provided by North Korea for scientific research workers. We can approach the residents here and see what their homes look like. ”
After speaking, the tour guide led the tourists into a house on the 17th floor of a certain community. When going upstairs, the tour guide also proudly introduced: “The houses here are all large-sized, divided into 180 square meters and 230 square meters. Priority is given to teachers of Pyongyang Kim Chak University of Technology. This is because North Korea attaches great importance to scientific research and education.”
After talking, the group has arrived at the designated visit point. The well-prepared hostess greeted her with enthusiasm, leading the tourists to see her refrigerator, color TV, washing machine and other electrical appliances.
