Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, gave field guidance to the construction site of the May 27 Fishery Station. The May 27 Fishery Station now under construction in an east coastal area on the personal initiative of Kim Jong Un will be the first modern pelagic fishery station to be built amid the drive for making a new history of big fish hauls.
Going round the construction site, he learnt in detail about the progress made in the project and gave precious instructions for it.
He recalled that President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il instructed that fishing operations should be conducted in the near and far-off seas while going out and coming back and pelagic fishing should be developed. It is necessary to carry out their behests for supplying much more fishes to the service personnel and people, he stressed, and went on:
“It is important to build well necessary facilities for the May 27 Fishery Station as it is a base for fishing operations by fleets of pelagic fishing boats and fish storing and processing.
In order to successfully build the fishery station it is necessary to build well a wharf capable of mooring several big boats alongside, breakwater and various kinds of facilities for sufficiently discharging, storing and processing fishes and all other facilities for the work and living of fishermen so that they may be impeccable even in distant future.”
Underscoring the need to push forward the construction project in a three dimensional manner in order to step up it, he personally solved the problems arising in the project including the supply of materials.
He gave an instruction to meticulously organize from now the work for laying a strong material and technological foundation for the station and establishing the pelagic fishing method of Korean style so that it may start pelagic fishing soon after the construction is over.
He noted that the enlarged meeting of the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party of Korea discussed and decided on the issue related to the construction of the May 27 Fishery Station while discussing important strategic matters concerning national defence as the work for decisively boosting the nation’s fishing industry is an important one for making the diet of the people more affluent and improving the supply service to the service personnel for the purpose of rounding off the combat preparations of the KPA.
Underlining the need to reinforce construction forces to finish the construction of the station in the best quality within the date set by the party, he said that he would issue an order of the KPA Supreme Commander to large combined units of the KPA to form strong construction forces and dispatch them to the construction site.
There may be a lot of bottlenecks and difficulties in building a modern pelagic fishery station, but he felt reassured as the project has been assigned to the KPA, a standard-bearer and shock force in implementing the party’s idea and defending its policies, he said, calling for successfully and unconditionally winding up the project till the 70th founding anniversary of the party to demonstrate once again the fighting capability of the KPA before the world. -0-
