Kim Jong Il Visited Nearly 80 Units in 2-odd Years

Pyongyang, May 17 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il provided the heyday of the development of light industry through the forced march of field guidance after kindling the torch of the new great revolutionary surge during his visit to the Chollima Steel Complex on December 24, Juche 97 (2008).

Since then he visited nearly 80 units, an average of at least two units a month, for development of light industry.

During his visits to the Pyongyang Flour-Processing Combine, Hoeryong Foodstuff Processing Factory and other factories and units he earnestly called for building modern factories as required by the new century so that people can benefit from them.

When he visited the Samilpho Special Products Factory he said that he saw a little fire for the development of light industry there, calling for making that fire flare up across the country.

When he went to Changsong County, where President Kim Il Sung ushered in the new history of golden mountain, he highly appreciated the achievements made by a small foodstuff factory in the mountainous area and made sure that a flame was kindled to effect a fresh turn in local industrial development, learning from the example set by the county.

Giving field guidance to a number of different units ranging from key light industrial factories to small local production cooperatives, he saw to it that the hot wind of light industrial development swept across the country.

When he visited the workers of the Kim Chaek Iron and Steel Complex he reposed big trust in them, encouraging them to take the lead in the great surge for the improvement of the people's living standards. He went to the February 8 Vinalon Complex several times during when he saw lots of goods produced by the vinalon intermediate plants and made sure that a drastic turn was effected in the chemical industry of the country to spur the development of light industry.

On August 3 last year he looked round the exhibition hall of people's consumer goods of South Hamgyong Province where he indicated important tasks to serve as guidelines in conducting vigorous August 3 people's consumption goods production drive. This offered an important occasion of epochal significance in materializing the Workers' Party of Korea's grand strategy for improving the people's living standards.

Recently he gave field guidance to lots of light industrial plants including Pyongyang Textile Mill, Raknang Ponghwa Garment Factory, Ponghwa Soap Factory and Pyongyang Mechanical Pencil Factory, encouraging party members and other working people to the creation of a new surge advance speed for the improvement of the people's living standards.
