Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defense Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, gave field guidance to the Chollima Tile Factory.
He looked round the mosaics depicting smiling President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il newly erected in the compound of the factory and the monument to the field guidance given by them and expressed satisfaction over the successful erection of the mosaics.
He went round the newly-built room dedicated to the history of the factory.
He told the officials to make a new history of the factory by keeping production going at a high rate, adding that he gave an instruction to the KPA to operate the factory to which Kim Jong Il attached great importance.
Stressing the need to make the heroic working spirit displayed in the post-war period of great Chollima upsurge run high at this factory in order to supply in good time the building materials needed by great socialist construction sites, he proposed naming the factory located in Kangson, hometown of Chollima, Chollima Tile Factory.
Going round various places including adhesives and tile production shops, digital natural color spray printing room and tile exhibition, he learned in detail about the production and new products development.
He highly praised the officials and employees of the factory for displaying patriotic devotion to over-fulfill this year’s tile production plan set higher than any other years.
He expressed great satisfaction, noting that the factory is the one strictly based on Juche and a patriotic one as it is capable of keeping its production on a normal footing, unaffected by any worldwide economic upheaval, and the longer one watches the factory, the more attractive and useful it looks.
He set forth tasks to be fulfilled by the factory.
He instructed the factory not only to satisfactorily meet the domestic demands for tiles but to further boost their production and improve their quality so that they might be exported to other countries.
He underlined the need to diversify color and size of tiles and continue directing great efforts to the work for developing new products suited to the sentiments and fashion of the Korean people and required for various uses.
He had a photo session with labor innovators, saying that the Party Central Committee firmly believes the workers of the factory would fully display the same work style and spirit as done in the period of great Chollima upsurge.
He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Ri Jae Il, Han Kwang Sang and Kim Jong Gwan.
