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 machine plant managed by Jon Tong Ryol.
Kim Jong Un went round the monument to the field guidance given by leader Kim Jong Il, the room devoted to the education in the revolutionary history and the room dedicated to the history of the plant.
He said that the plant which was established by President Kim Il Sung after personally initiating its construction and choosing its site, foreseeing the nation’s development of the machine-building industry is associated with the devoted efforts Kim Jong Il made by visiting it several times and clearly indicating the road to be followed by it.
Going round the processing shop, general assembling shop and other places of the plant, he learned in detail about production and its management and operation.
Watching the cutting-edge machine products being assembled at the plant, he praised its workers for successfully building them with their own efforts and technology.
He said that the plant should fulfill its plan without fail through a high-pitched drive for keeping production going at a high rate and make thorough preparations for hitting a higher production goal.
To this end it is necessary for the plant to dynamically push forward the work for updating the aging equipment and modernizing and automating the production processes.
The Marshal instructed it to grasp the main link and accelerate the updating by determining the proper order of priority for it.
Noting that it is not easy to update the plant, he underscored the need to elaborately and scrupulously push ahead with the work like going up one step after another, not being carried away by impatience.
Saying that the quality is as important as the quantitative indices in production, he called for making a dynamic drive for improving the quality of products.
Noting that many more modern machines are required by various fields at present, he called for operating machines in full capacity by taking thorough measures for the supply of materials and told the officials to channel efforts into improving the supply service for the workers.
He set again the targets to be attained by the plant in the future and specified tasks and ways for doing so.
He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Ri Pyong Chol, Han Kwang Sang, Jo Chun Ryong, Hong Yong Chil and Jang Chang Ha.
