General Secretary Kim Jong Il provided field guidance to the Pakchon Silk Mill in North Phyongan Province.
He went round the monument to the on-the-spot instructions given by President Kim Il Sung and the monument to his on-the-spot guidance standing in the compound of the mill.
He said that the Pakchon Silk Mill turned into a modern silk producer thanks to the wise guidance and meticulous care of Kim Il Sung, underscoring the need to bring about a leap forward in production, always bearing his behests deep in mind.
He made the rounds of various production processes.
The WPK has strictly subordinated all problems arising in economic construction to improving the standard of the people’s living, he said, adding that to settle the problem of clothing is one of the two major important tasks as it is as essential as the food problem.
It is an important work directly linked with the issue of improving the standard of the people’s living to increase the production of quality clothing materials and blankets, he noted, stressing the need to direct big efforts to producing silk to bring about a turn in settling the problem of clothing.
The producers should acquire technical skill now that the mill has been furnished with new type technological equipment, he said, calling upon all the officials and workers to strive to acquire advanced science and technology.
He expressed the expectation and conviction that the officials, workers and technicians of the mill would display creative ingenuity and patriotic devotion to boost the production of quality silk and blankets for the people and thus successfully discharge an honorable mission and duty as genuine servants for them.
He was accompanied by Kim Phyong Hae, chief secretary of the North Phyongan Provincial Committee of the WPK, Pak Nam Gi, department director of the WPK Central Committee, and Ri Jae Il, first vice department director of the WPK Central Committee.
