Kim Jong Un, supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, inspected the Sinuiju Measuring Instrument Factory.
Saying that he was so pleased to receive a report about world-class ultra-modern measuring instruments developed by the factory and came to meet the developers, the supreme leader highly appreciated their feats.
He looked round a monument to revolutionary activities of the great leaders and a room for education in their revolutionary history.
He expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the factory, to which President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il had always paid deep attention and he, too, attaches very great importance, manufactured new modern measuring instruments to be used in various fields of the national economy and defense industry and thus carried out another behest of the great leaders.
After touring processing and assembling shops, sci-tech room and other parts of the factory, he learned in detail about the technical specifications and performance of the newly-developed measuring instruments.
The instruments are of the world level, he said, adding it is a remarkable success that such ultra-modern instruments were manufactured with indigenous efforts and technology.
The factory provided a big stepping-stone for developing the nation's field of measuring instrument production at a leaping pace and speeding up the building of a prosperous country, he said.
Noting the factory has a very important role to play, he indicated the tasks facing it.
He set the goals to be attained by the factory in production, urging it to increase the output of measuring instruments developed on a higher level of Juche-orientation, modernization and localization.
Stressing the need to modernize the factory as required by the age of knowledge-based economy in order to drastically raise the output of ultra-modern measuring instruments of Korean style and ensure their quality, he called for turning it into a manpower-saving factory and an icon factory in the field of measuring instrument production by putting all its production processes on an automated and CNC basis.
Going round a canteen and supply service facilities of the factory, he said that, as always mentioned, bigger success can be made in production only when better living conditions are provided for the workers. And he indicated the ways for further improving its supply service.
The workers at the factory are strong in revolutionary spirit and there will be nothing impossible to do when going together with such workers, he said, adding he would become an honorary manager of the factory, an expression of his deepest trust.
There is no fortress unconquerable when our workers live and struggle like those of Kunja-ri in the 1950s, he said, stressing that it is advisable to conduct a higher level of mass movement for learning from the working spirit and traits of the Kunja-ri workers as well as the Three-Revolution Red Flag Movement.
He had a photo session with the officials and employees of the factory, expressing belief that they would make positive contribution to the building of a thriving country by developing and producing more measuring instruments, true to the Workers' Party of Korea's line of building an economic power and its strategic plan.
Accompanying him were Kim Chun Sop, Jo Chun Ryong, Jo Yong Won, Hong Yong Chil and Yun Tong Hyon.
