Rodong Sinmun Calls for Effecting New Turn in Building Economic Giant
Pyongyang, January 4 (KCNA) -- "Let us bring about a radical turn in the building of an economic giant with the same spirit and mettle as were displayed in conquering space!" -- this is the slogan the Workers' Party and people of Korea should uphold this year, says Rodong Sinmun Friday in an editorial.

The slogan is a banner giving the Korean people the conviction and courage for victory in building an economic socialist power, it notes, and goes on:

The slogan is pervaded with the urgent requirements in the present times.

It is necessary to actively learn from and thoroughly embody the white gem-like loyalty of space conquerors who carried out the behests of leader Kim Jong Il to the letter.

It is imperative to struggle and create like the space conquerors who weathered any difficulties to carry out his behests.

It is necessary to devote oneself to building an economic giant with burning patriotic enthusiasm to fully demonstrate Korea of the sun.

The service personnel and people should make their hearts burn with the great national pride and revolutionary self-esteem of living in Korea of the sun, holding in high esteem the peerlessly great man recognized by the world.

It is essential for them to put the nation's overall science and technology on the world's level as soon as possible through a dynamic drive for pushing back the frontiers of latest science and technology just as the satellite scientists conquered space.

It is necessary to create and make leap forward with the bold spirit and trait of advancing ahead of other countries in the world, racing against times.

It is also necessary to give fullest play to the might of collectivism in all work sites for building an economic power.

It is essential to give full play to the might of single-minded unity and revolutionary comradeship in building an economic power.

The editorial calls upon all the service personnel and people to wage a dynamic drive to bring about an epochal phase in building an economic power with the same spirit and stamina as were displayed in conquering space with the national pride and self-esteem of living in great Korea of the sun.
