Kim Jong Un Gives Field Guidance to January 18 General Machinery Plant
Pyongyang, June 18 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the DPRK National Defence Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, provided field guidance to the January 18 General Machinery Plant.

He went round the room devoted to the education in the revolutionary history.

Looking with keen attention at significant historic data and relics, he said that President Kim Il Sung and General Secretary Kim Jong Il attached great importance to the plant as it is playing an important role in the development of the nation's machine-building industry. He added that he always pays great attention to the production at the plant.

After being told that the construction of the above-said room was not completed even in over two years, he said he learned about what was the main reason for the plant's failure to put production on a normal footing.

The party has stressed that it is important to keep the ideological education ahead of production for raising the enthusiasm of the producer masses, he noted, strongly criticizing the party committee of the plant for failing to accept the party's policy ideologically.

"I don't know what officials of the provincial party committee see at the plant and what they are guiding," he noted, warning them of their businessmen-like hackneyed way of thinking and work style.

At the construction site of the room for the education in the revolutionary history he watched for a long while piles of gravels and sand and blocks here and there. "I can't find proper words to express that mess," he added.

After going round the Hall for Studying Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism, he noted that the provincial party committee should draw a serious lesson as regards the implementation of the party's policy on giving priority to the political and ideological education.

Examining varieties of machines produced by the plant, he learned about the fulfillment of its plan.

He went round the general assembling shop, processing shop, test shop, casting shop and various other places of the plant to learn about its technological updating.

He seriously noted that production equipment of the plant are outdated in view of the requirements of the age of the knowledge-based economy and it is behind other industrial establishments in cultured practices in production and life.

Learning in detail about the supply service, he felt heart-broken when he learned officials of the plant failed to take good care of the living of the employees as desired by the party.

Setting forth tasks before the plant, he said:

"The plant should glorify the leadership exploits o the great Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.

"It should dynamically conduct the ideological education to give fullest play to the mental power of the workers.

"It should steadily push forward the work for putting the production processes on a modern and scientific basis.

"The plant should launch a dynamic campaign to improve the supply service, working people's material and cultural standards and establish cultured practices in production and life.

"The plant is faced with difficult and huge tasks, but it can surely implement them as it has revolutionary workers, the technical staff steeled in practice and a wealth of experience and proud tradition."

He expressed great expectation and belief that the workers of the plant would radically remodel it as required by the new century and bring about a great leap forward in the production of modern machines and successfully perform the role as vanguard and shock brigade in carrying out the economic policy of the party.

He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, Hong Yong Chil, Yun Tong Hyon and Han Song Ho.
