Rodong Sinmun Calls for High-pitched Drive for Improving People's Living
Pyongyang, January 4 (KCNA) -- The joint New Year editorial of the DPRK set forth tasks to spur the light industrial sector once again this year to bring about a decisive turn in improving the people's standard of living and building a thriving nation.

All the Korean people should speed up the general onward march for a final victory in the ongoing drive, says Rodong Sinmun in an editorial Tuesday.

The militant tasks to accelerate the development of light industry are a blueprint of victory which can be put forth only by the Workers' Party of Korea, a party providing a firm guarantee for improving the people's standard of living, the editorial says, and goes on:

Those tasks reflect the matchless pluck and spirit of the army and the people of the DPRK that no fortress is unconquerable as they are led by Kim Jong Il.

This year we should make redoubled efforts to demonstrate the spirit and honor of Songun Korea emerging a thriving nation by the tremendous might of single-minded unity.

All the people should carry through the militant tasks in their sectors and units in the same faith, mettle and practical abilities as displayed by the workers of the Kim Chaek Iron and Steel Complex.

We should have the intense loyalty and will to carry into reality the leader's plan and intention without fail.

The tasks facing the Korean people are very big, but this year's general onward march is sure to emerge victorious as there are the tested leadership of Kim Jong Il, the tremendous mental power of the army and people ready to devotedly carry out any decision of the Party, indestructible military strength and solid foundation of the independent economy.
