Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, gave field guidance to the construction site of the Wonsan-Kalma coastal tourist area.
Supreme Leader of the Party, state and army Kim Jong Un inspected several places of the construction site to acquaint himself in detail with the construction results and situation.
He highly praised the builders for nearly finishing framework construction of all the buildings and plastering of their interiors and exteriors, constructing additional buildings at the high speed and pushing forward afforestation and greening in three dimensions by pressing ahead with the project while creating construction anecdotes without an equal in the world even in winter, thus changing the appearance of the construction site beyond recognition.
He said that the shortcomings that the artistic reciprocity, compatibility and connectivity among the buildings are not flexible, and high and low buildings are not combined in a harmonious way, which he pointed out while inspecting the area at the end of last year, were made up. He expressed great satisfaction, saying that the whole of the street formation looks elegant artistically and fairly good and that the area is very spectacular.
He said that large-scale construction work like the tourist area should never be carried out in a slipshod manner, stressing the speed only. He stressed that as the Party directs with mind enormous funds and labor to the construction of the tourist area for the people, it is necessary to ensure the quality of every building at the highest level so that it should be perfect 50 or 100 years later, too.
He gave precious instructions to spruce up the area including the issue of designing all the buildings on the principle of optimization to make them useful and convenient, the issue of economizing the building materials and constructing the buildings suited to the modern aesthetic sense, the issue of building promenade, tramlines and bicycle roads well suited to users’ convenience, the issue of producing many storage battery cars, the issue of making floating piers for the panel lodgings built on stilts over the water to make people use boats, the issue of setting up outdoor clocks on buildings and other places for people bathing in the sea, the issue of decorating buildings with lamplights and putting up signboards in a highly civilized and peculiar way.
He pointed out that the relevant field should correctly set operation units to begin service just after the completion of the buildings, and structural measures for perfect service preparation should be made.
The builders should not push forward the construction of the Wonsan-Kalma coastal tourist area in a hurried way to finish till the Party founding anniversary this year after the sea-bathing season, but postpone the construction period until the Day of the Sun next year to perfectly finish it so that our people would fully enjoy themselves in the impeccable tourist area from the sea-bathing season next year, he said, calling upon all to create new feats in the worthwhile struggle to build a people’s cultural resting place, coastal park of the people envied by the world, in high spirits.
He was accompanied by Jo Yong Won and Kim Ung Bok, vice department directors of the Central Committee of the WPK.
