Rodong Sinmun Calls for Rapid Boost in Electric Power, Coal Production
Pyongyang, January 13 (KCNA) -- Rodong Sinmun Monday editorially calls for bringing about signal innovations on the fronts of electricity and coal which keep industry afloat and thus giving strong spurs to the general onward movement for this year.

To radically increase electric power and coal production is an urgent requirement for giving full play to the might and potential of Juche-based industry as required by the times and dynamically speeding up the drive for building an economic power and improving the people's living standard, the editorial says, and goes on:

Only when priority is given to the electric power and coal industries is it possible to make the fertilizer production system based on the gasification of coal successfully operate so that Juche fertilizer may be satisfactorily supplied to the agricultural front, a major thrust, and irrigate the fields of co-op farms so as to successfully attain the goal of grain production set by the party.

In order to usher in a fresh heyday in the construction by building world-class structures representative of the Songun era it is very important to produce and ensure quality building materials such as cement in good time by ensuring the supply of electric power and coal to the building material production bases in a responsible manner.

It is also necessary to remarkably increase electric power and coal production in a bid to satisfactorily ensure power and raw and other materials needed to iron and steel works, leading chemical industrial bases and many light industrial factories as well as to provide the people with affluent and highly civilized living conditions.

The editorial calls on the whole party and country and all people to turn out as one in the drive to decisively boost the electric power and coal production in hearty response to the far-reaching plan and noble intention of the party.
