11 years have elapsed since leader Kim Jong Il published the immortal classic work “Let Us Thoroughly Carry through the Party’s Line of Economic Construction in the Songun Era”.
Kim Jong Il in the work elucidated the orientation and ways to hold fast to in economic construction including the problems on concentrating all efforts on developing defense industry preferentially, resolutely improving the people’s standard of living through the simultaneous development of light industry and agriculture, observing the socialist principle in the economy and giving full play to the superiority of the socialist economy.
The past 11 years since the publication of the work have clearly proved the validity and vitality of the Party’s line of economic construction in the Songun era.
Under the wise leadership of Kim Jong Il defense industry was put on a Juche-oriented, modern and IT basis, thereby making it possible to further develop our revolutionary armed forces into an invincible army equipped with modern arms and expedite the construction of an economic giant through the industrial revolution in the new era.
The material and technical basis of light industry and agriculture was consolidated and the land readjustment was promoted vigorously, renovating its looks as befits land of socialist Korea.
The military strength was boosted and a firm foundation was laid to improve the material and cultural life of the people. It proves the vitality of the line of economic construction in the Songun era on developing light industry and agriculture simultaneously while giving priority to the growth of defense industry.
Today the imperialists are more viciously committing military aggression maneuvers to check the victorious advance of the Korean revolution.
But our army and people are filled with confidence in victory as they have a powerful self-defensive nuclear deterrence and firm arsenal of the great Paektusan nation.
Recently we successfully fired ultra-precision tactical rockets of Korean style which were developed on the initiative of Supreme Commander Kim Jong Un and under his guidance. It is a precious fruition brought about by the strong faith and will of Kim Jong Un to add luster to the immortal exploits of Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il who devoted their ceaseless efforts to the development of the Juche-based national defense power.
All of us should hold fast to the line of economic construction in the Songun era and support the Songun-based leadership of our Party and thus make fresh leap forward and innovations at all work places for building a socialist thriving nation.
