Decision of Joint Conference over Sundry Goods Production

Pyongyang, August 5 (KCNA) -- President Kim Il Sung devoted his whole life to the happiness of the people.

In January Juche 66 (1977) he presided over a joint conference of the Political Committee of the C.C., the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), Central People's Committee and Administration Council.

A senior official from the State Planning Commission suggested having a list of sundry goods ordered adopted without a detailed explanation because the President had examined it more than once before and officials concerned had well known about it.

But the President said the sundry goods production was one of the most important things for people's living and asked him to slowly read the list without omitting even an item.

The 206-item list included even spoon, chopsticks, fine-toothed bamboo comb, vase and needle.

When the official was reading the list, the President wrote down the items in his handbook.

When he finished reading, the President rose from his seat.

Saying the production of sundry goods was one of the tasks set by WPK, he suggested deciding on the list for the new year by a show of hands and raised his right hand first.

He then said the implementation of the decision would be judged by the people.
