KCNA Report on Miracles Made in Various Fields This Year
Pyongyang, December 19 (KCNA) -- The Korean Central News Agency released a report Saturday as regards the miracles performed by the servicepersons and people of the DPRK this year under the leadership of Kim Jong Il to be specially recorded in the history of the nation which says:

The socialist self-supporting economy is paying off profusely as evidenced by great innovations and leaping progress reported from every nook and corner of the country. A sure guarantee has thus been provided for flinging open the gate to a great prosperous and powerful nation in 2012, the centenary of birth of President Kim Il Sung.

Satellite Kwangmyongsong-2 was successfully launched on the occasion of the Day of the Sun pursuant to the state long-term plan for space development and there were the unprecedentedly grand displays of fireworks on the occasions of the Day of the Sun, May Day and the anniversary of the foundation of the Workers' Party of Korea. The DPRK's CNC-based machine-building industry pushed back the frontiers of science.

The KCC go program developed by young scientists of the DPRK placed first at the International Computer Go Contest again.

Remarkable changes were brought about in putting the metal industry on a Juche and modern basis as evidenced by the establishment of the iron production processes entirely depending on Juche iron.

The magnesia clinker industry was successfully put on a Juche basis by the efforts of Koreans themselves in a short span of time. This was of eventful significance in the development of the country's economy.

Builders at the Huichon Power Station construction site created "Huichon Speed", a new Chollima speed representing the Songun era.

The completion of the large-scale Nyongwon Power Station was hailed as a success as spectacular as the launch of satellite Kwangmyongsong-3.

A firm guarantee was provided for developing machine-building industry and chemical industry by a Juche-based method and increasing agricultural production.

Thanks to the dynamic struggle waged for putting the economy on a modern and scientific basis as a whole, leading industrial bases were placed on a high scientific and technological basis.

A great leap forward was made in the drive to improve the standard of the people's living.

A new reality was opened in socialist rural construction and the project for reclaiming Taegyedo tideland was carried out to obtain new cultivated land. The gravity-fed waterways extending scores of kilometers from Koksan County to Singye County in North Hwanghae Province was completed.

Modern general foodstuff processing centers, stock-breeding centers and fish breeding centers made their appearance in different parts of the country.

There sprang up the Taedonggang General Fruit Farm as an impeccable grand orchard. Mansudae Street, the Indoor Swimming Pool of Kim Il Sung University, Majon Hotel and others were built as required by the new century, translating the people's ideal under socialism into reality.

Signal changes took place in the development of culture and arts, education and sports, too. In last June DPRK footballers were qualified to participate in the World Cup, in particular.

This year's stirring events prove once again that the experienced and tested leadership of General Secretary Kim Jong Il and his great patriotic devotion are the source of all victories, miracles and inexhaustible strength.
