Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, provided field guidance to the Jongsong Pharmaceutical General Factory.
He looked round a room for the education in the revolutionary history.
Recollecting with deep emotion the day when he was visiting the factory accompanying leader Kim Jong Il, he was very pleased to see the factory having carried out the behest of the leader by updating the production process of transfusion medicine and increasing the production capacity.
He looked at varieties of medicines produced by the factory.
I gave an instruction to the officials of the factory to cut down the packing cost while packing medicines well during my visit to it last year, he said, noting that it has brought about a fresh improvement in packing medicines, ensured their hygiene, culture and utility at a high level and their instructions are given to the convenience of users.
And he went round the modernly expanded transfusion factory.
It is a laudable success that the factory is producing transfusion medicines that meet the requirements of the international medicine production and quality control standard by putting the production process on an automated and stream lines and production environment on a germ-free and dust-free basis at the highest level, he said.
He gave important instructions which would serve as guidelines for managing and operating the factory.
He stressed the need for the factory to pay special attention to the work for thoroughly guaranteeing the security and reliability of all medicines while increasing varieties of reserve medicines including antipyretic and analgesic medicines and digestives and further raising their efficacy and establish a strict discipline and order in the medicine production, examination, storage and handling.
He underscored the need to firmly build the technical force of the factory with able talents well versed in modern science and technology and continue to exert great efforts for positively introducing advanced technology in order to make fresh progress in development and production of medicines.
He noted with great satisfaction and high appreciation that the factory has achieved a signal success at a time when eye-opening miracles and feats are being performed in succession in various parts of the country and monumental structures in the era of the Workers' Party are springing up like bamboo shoots after rain thanks to the high-pitched drive of the service personnel and people to glorify the 70th founding anniversary of the Party with high political enthusiasm and labor feats.
He said that he felt proud of making the revolution whenever he saw great successes made in all places he visited, adding that he liked to carry those doing a lot of work on his back and there is nothing to spare for them. He showed profound loving care for the factory.
He expressed the expectation and belief that the officials and employees of the factory would fulfill their responsibility and duty as intended by the Party and thus positively contribute to giving fullest play to the advantages and might of the socialist healthcare system before having a photo session with them.
He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Kim Yang Gon, So Hong Chan and Jo Yong Won.
