Kim Jong Un Gives Field Guidance to Kanggye General Tractor Plant
Pyongyang, June 21 (KCNA) -- Marshal 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, gave field guidance to the Kanggye General Tractor Plant.

He went round the revolutionary museum first.

Watching for a long while the photos of the great Generalissimos Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il displayed in the lobby of the revolutionary museum, he said that they attached great importance to this plant as it plays an important role in developing the nation's machine-building industry.

He watched the words of the song of the plant displayed there. He asked the manager and the secretary of the party committee of the plant to sing the song. He praised them for singing the song well, his face beaming with a broad smile. It was a good song as it reflected the spirit of the workers of the plant, he added.

He recalled that Kim Jong Il regarded the plant as important and showed particular loving care for it in his lifetime.

Kim Jong Un praised the plant for conducting effective education of its employees in the leadership exploits of the great men of Mt. Paektu after building the revolutionary museum well. Noting that it is a good center for education, he said it stands out in a sharp contrast to the plant he criticized while visiting it a few days ago.

He dropped in at the products show hall to see machines manufactured by the plant and learn about the development of new type products.

He expressed satisfaction over the fact that the plant manufactured new modern machines of Korean style by its own efforts and with indigenous technology.

It is good to have the spirit of buckling down to the work full of confidence, not disappointed in any difficulties, he said, asking what is necessary for the modernization of the plant. He took benevolent measures.

He went round the processing and assembling shops to learn in detail about production there.

At the processing shop, he praised the plant for keeping the production site neat and tidy. He was pleased to see varieties of machine parts being churned out from modern machines and presses standing in lines at the work sites.

After watching workers of the plant using a modern spinning machine presented to Kim Jong Il and Kim Jong Un as a gift, he appreciated the intense loyalty of its workers to the Party.

At the assembling shop he encouraged the workers and technicians devoting their wisdom and enthusiasm to the production of machines. Walking a compound of the plant, he praised its workers for keeping their work sites neat and tidy. He called for intensifying the work to spruce up the inside of the plant like a palace and its outside like a park.

He made the round of the swimming pool and gymnasium newly built by the plant.

He praised officials of the plant and a relevant field for having made devoted efforts to provide its workers with ample conditions for cultural rest.

"I am very pleased to see the modern swimming pool and gymnasium," he said, adding that the longer one watches the plant, the more it looks attractive.

Going round the canteen in the compound and a bean processing factory, he learned about supply service.

At the dining room he was very pleased to hear that the plant has detailed plans for daily service, monthly special service, service to couples of innovators, service to mothers and service on birthdays and service is given according to them.

Stressing once again that supply service means a battle for defending socialism, he urged the officials to pay primary attention to the work for improving the standards of material and cultural life of the workers.

"I am most pleased when I visit any plant which is successful in supply service," he added.

He met with the labor innovators of the plant and had a photo session with them.

He watched a grand chorus "Our Plant Shining with the Bloodline of Mt. Paektu" presented by workers of the plant. He congratulated them on their successful performance.

"I drew great strength while watching the performance. It helped me renew the resolution to more successfully make revolution with our reliable workers in the future," he noted.

He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, Pak Thae Song, Kang Kwan Il, Hwang Pyong So, Hong Yong Chil, Yun Tong Hyon, Pak Jong Chon and Kim Thaek Gu and Ryu Yong Sop, chief secretary of the Jagang Provincial Committee of the WPK.
