Kim Jong Un, Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea and, Chairman of the State Affairs Commission and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, gave field guidance to the construction site of the Sunchon Phosphatic Fertilizer Factory.
He was accompanied by Jo Yong Won, Ma Won Chun, and Ri Jong Nam, senior officials of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
Listening to the explanation of the master plan for the construction of the Sunchon Phosphatic Fertilizer Factory and scientific and technological issues, Kim Jong Un learned about the construction of the factory in detail.
Walking about the seething construction site, he stressed the importance of the construction of the factory once again, saying he is encouraged all the more to see the revolutionary mettle of struggle of the reliable scientists, technicians and workers who are solving the huge difficult project which is as good as pioneering of a new field in the development of chemical industry of the country with their own strength and technology, keeping in their hearts the Party’s idea of achieving prosperity by dint of self-reliance on creating and building something only in our own way and by relying on our own strength.
He expressed great satisfaction over the fact that enterprises under the Ministry of Construction and Building-Materials Industry and other ministries and national agencies and officials and builders of all units including Sunchon City involved in the project are waging a vigorous struggle in the van of the breakthrough head-on, true to the Party’s grand plan and intention for building an economic giant. And he encouraged their feats of labour, saying: I express deep thanks to them for their efforts. I hope that it would be the front making a breakthrough and hoist the flag of victory before others this year when the Party’s great idea on breakthrough head-on was set forth. I also hope that the news of struggle in the field would give infinite strength and encouragement at the site of making a great upsurge across the country.
Kim Jong Un said: It is a good attempt fully corresponding to the Party’s idea and intention of making breakthrough head-on to solve the important work for establishing a modern industry capable of mass-producing high-concentration ammonium phosphatic fertilizer thoroughly with their own strength, technology and manpower. We should continue to make good results through struggle based on self-reliance for sure.
It is necessary to set it as an intentional target to automate all the elements and processes of the phosphatic fertilizer factory to be built on a modern basis and build it thoroughly into a labour-saving industry. Deep attention should be always paid to guaranteeing the reliability of the automatic control system and the safety of the production processes, building powerful technicians of the factory and training producers with high technical knowledge and skills.
In order to normalize the production of the factory, it is necessary to provide raw materials satisfactorily. It is the most important issue. According to the policy ratified by the Party, it is important to carry on proper economic operations to rapidly restore the apatite mines and grasp and guide them and push ahead with them forcefully while taking them into account one by one.
Kim Jong Un stressed the need to make a scientific calculation of the issues which may affect the surrounding ecological environment in the course of building and operating the Sunchon Phosphatic Fertilizer Factory and solve them in a scientific way.
He said he had come to the construction site as the first work of guidance this year in order to stress once again that the construction of the Sunchon Phosphatic Fertilizer Factory is one of the projects to which the Party attaches greatest importance of the economic tasks to be carried out in 2020, the first year of the breakthrough head-on. And he gave an honourable task to the Cabinet, the Ministry of Chemical Industry and the Ministry of Mining Industry that they should forcefully promote the project with the attitude and viewpoint of masters as the Party would take immediate measures to supply fund for the project and actively support the work, showing deep trust in them.
He confidently said: It is a natural reason that the flag is fluttering when the wind blows. The more adverse wind the hostile forces bring, the more fiercely our red flag will fly without folds. No matter how grave the situation may be and though the difficulties are in our way, our ideal and ambition will be surely realized by our hands when we keep the validity of our cause as faith and display steadily high sense of responsibility, devotion and activeness, relying on our strength.
He said it is necessary to finish at an early date the construction of the Sunchon Phosphatic Fertilizer Factory and the work to restore the apatite mines which are of great significance in decisively increasing the agricultural production of the country, and normalize the production of high-concentration ammonium phosphatic fertilizer. He expressed the belief that all the builders, scientists, technicians and workers would wage a vigorous struggle as outpost in the grandiose breakthrough head-on with warm patriotism that they are also responsible for the agricultural front, the forefront of the campaign to defend socialism.
