Consumer Goods Popular among Local People
| Pyongyang, August 3 (KCNA) -- The National August 3 Consumer Goods Exhibition was opened in Pyongyang on Friday.
On display there are at least 126 000 items of goods, including garment, footwear, foodstuff, household articles, kitchen utensils and sundries for daily use, which were produced at industrial establishments, housewives' workteams and reutilization production workteams and by home workers for welfare service across the country.
Exhibits presented by consumer goods production units in Pyongyang and other parts of the country have become the focus of attention for their diversity, necessity and utility.
Ko In Sil, a department director of the Ministry of Foodstuff and Daily Necessities, told KCNA:
"The ongoing exhibition witnesses an increase of varieties of exhibits nearly 2.4 times the figures in the previous year.
The credit for those achievements goes to the meticulous guidance of leader Kim Jong Il, who had worked heart and soul for the improvement of people's livelihood in his lifetime.
As was busy with his guidance over the Songun revolution, he indicated the tasks and ways for all economic units to step up the August 3 Consumer Goods Production Movement and took concrete measures to this end.
True to his noble intention, all the units have striven to turn out more consumer goods that meet the tastes and demands of people, by exploiting locally available raw materials, agricultural by-products and internal reserves this year."
Every economic unit of the country is now working hard to radically raise the quality and variety of consumer goods.
In Pyongyang, Phyongchon, Taedonggang and Mangyongdae districts provide residents with quilts, pillows, various jars, vessels, bags and household articles urgently needed for living.
Garments, grassworks and household goods are mass-produced in North and South Phyongan and Hamgyong provinces and South Hwanghae Province.
