A large-scale controlled explosion was carried out on 22 July 2004 to remove 300,000 cubic meters of earth at the site of the 293,000 square meter Taean Friendship Glass Factory, which is under construction on the bank of the River Taedong in South Phyongan Province, North Korea. The project is a gift from China to North Korea and is described as a symbol of the friendship between the two countries. A ground breaking ceremony for the works held on 1 July 2004 was attended by top officials from both countries including the North Korean prime minister, Pak Pong Ju, and Jo Yun Hui, minister of Construction and Building Materials Industries for North Korea. The blast was the third which has been carried out to level the site of the glassworks and has improved prospects for completing construction ahead of schedule.
