Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK), first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, provided field guidance to the Chonma Electrical Machine Plant.
After being briefed on the monument to the field guidance given by President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il, Kim Jong Un looked round the room for the education in the revolutionary history.
Looking at historic relics and mementoes with great attention, he looked back with deep emotion on the proud path covered by the plant under the care of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
This area where the plant is located and various other places of the country are closely associated with the footprints of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, he noted, adding:
“Coming to my mind as I have reached the entrance to the plant was the image of Kim Jong Il who visited this plant several times including the period of the Arduous March, instilling conviction of sure victory and optimism into its workers.”
He highly appreciated the feats performed by the workers of the plant, recalling that they have turned out in hearty response to the instructions given by Kim Jong Il on the spot and successfully carried out their production quotas despite manifold bottlenecks and difficulties.
He underscored the need for the party members and other workers of the plant to glorify the leadership feats of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il forever by increasing the production of efficient electrical machines, always remembering the glorious tradition in which they have upheld the WPK with increased production.
He went round different places of the plant to learn about the production and set forth the tasks to be fulfilled for its modernization.
Looking at the electrical machines produced by the plant, he said that they are proving effective in reality and high in demand. He praised its employees for waging a dynamic drive to overfulfill their national economy plan, true to the party’s intention.
He underscored the need to expand the capacity of the plant and energetically step up the updating of the production processes in order to supply cutting edge electrical machines to various sectors of the national economy.
He gave an instruction to push ahead with the work to consolidate the material and technical foundation of the plant in a big way so that it may mass-produce multi-purpose electrical machines.
He underlined the need for the plant to put the production processes on a CNC basis at higher level in order to ensure the best quality of all its products to be favored by the users.
The development of new products, increase in production and improvement of quality would be unthinkable apart from science and technology, he said, calling for arranging well the room for disseminating science and technology and paying deep attention to the work for steadily raising the level of technical skills of the employees.
He told officials to successfully build not only welfare and service facilities but also a hostel and cultural hall so that the producers may work and enjoy a cultural and emotional life without any inconvenience.
He promised to solve all the problems arising in the work to expand the production capacity, update the production processes and radically face-lift the plant.
He expressed great expectation and conviction that the workers of the plant would face-lift it as required by the age of the knowledge-based economy and as befitting a highly civilized socialist country and successfully mass-produce modern electrical machines and thus make a contribution to the cause of building a thriving nation.
He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Jang Jong Nam, Pyon In Son, Yun Tong Hyon, Pak Jong Chon and Hong Yong Chil.
