Pyongyang, March 20 (KCNA) — Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, provided field guidance to the machine plant managed by Kang Thae Ho.
Kim Jong Un first looked round its e-library.
He was pleased to see a centre for disseminating science and technology, noting that it was built very well as intended by the party and it is impeccable in all aspects as it has up-to-date equipment sent by the party.
It has become possible for scientists, technicians and workers to steadily raise the level of their technical skill and broaden their outlook as the plant has established a network system not only with various scientific research institutes but also with well-known universities so that they may get access to data of cutting-edge science and technology on a regular basis, he noted.
Then he went round the designing room, processing and assembling shops and other places.
It is necessary for the plant to give definite priority to scientific researches to keep the production going at a high rate and improve the quality of products, he said, setting the goal to be attained by it for research and the development of machine products, indicating the orientation of research work and underscoring the need to strengthen the scientific technological force by successfully building a think tank.
He acquainted himself with the work to produce precise, light and intellectual products at the plant and stressed the need to manufacture all products to be of the best quality so they might be favored by users.
Learning about the use of the geothermal cooling and heating equipment introduced by the plant, he said that the plant set an example in carrying out the WPK’s policy on widely using natural energy.
He expressed hope that officials, scientists, technicians and workers of the plant would bring about a steady boost in the production by making a dynamic drive for breaking through the cutting edge with the resolution to put the nation’s machine-building industry on a world level through campaigns of brains and technology. Then he had a photo session with them.
He was accompanied by Han Kwang Sang, Hwang Pyong So and Hong Yong Chil. -0-
