Book made in the DPRK around 1980. The book is about Nampo City. Nampo was originally a small fishing village that became a port for foreign trade in 1897, developing into a modern port in 1945 after World War II.
With the rapid increase in state investment, the city's industrial capacity grew. Some of the city's industrial facilities include the city's Smelter Complex, Glass Corporation, Shipbuilding Complex, Fishery Complex, and other central and local factories.
Nampo is a center for the DPRK shipbuilding industry. North of the city are facilities for freight transportation, aquatic products, and fishery, and a sea salt factory. Apples grown in the city's Ryonggang district are a famous local product.
