Kim Jong Un, chairman 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, gave field guidance to the construction site of the medical oxygen factory.
Kim Jong Un, who is always thoughtful of firmly protecting and promoting the lives and health of the people and giving fuller play to the advantages of the socialist healthcare system by bringing about a new turn in the healthcare, personally initiated the construction of a modern oxygen factory urgently needed for healthcare.
He chose the site for the factory in a good place in the suburbs of Pyongyang in order to enable all hospitals to use hygienically safe quality oxygen for the medical treatment of the people and solved all the problems arising in its construction.
He acquainted himself in detail with the plan and design for the construction of the factory before going round the construction site and giving precious instructions for the construction.
Noting that oxygen for a medical purpose in use by the field of healthcare requires high hygienic safety unlike industrial oxygen being used by the factories and enterprises, he said, underscoring the need to build the medical oxygen factory at the highest level to mass-produce high quality oxygen for the hospitals.
He stressed the need to automate all the production processes including oxygen separating station, liquid and gas oxygen filling stations and put the combined control system necessary for factory management and operation on the highest level and prepare a sufficient quantity of oxygen cylinders of different capacities for diverse purposes.
All the buildings of the factory should be built in such a way as to ensure that they keep good harmony with natural environment around it and they look hygienically and culturally neat and tidy and the oxygen supply station should be constructed well so that the hospitals in Pyongyang may receive medical oxygen without any inconvenience, he said.
Underlining the need to build modern medical oxygen production bases like the above-said factory in different parts of the country so as to sufficiently provide medical oxygen to all the hospitals across the country, he took benevolent measures to this end.
Unstinted investment should be made in the field of public health to let the people have benefits of healthcare under our best socialist healthcare system where the party and the state are fully responsible for lives and health of the people, he said, adding that this work also is important for defending socialism.
Noting that all the service personnel and people of the country would launch the 200-day campaign of loyalty to make a breakthrough towards implementing the five-year strategy for the state economic development set forth at the Seventh Congress of the WPK, he expressed expectation and belief that the builders would further intensify the drive for creating the Mallima speed in the construction of the factory and thus successfully complete it till September 9, the founding anniversary of the DPRK.
He was accompanied by Ri Man Gon, vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the WPK, Jo Yong Won, vice department director of the C.C., the WPK, and Ma Won Chun, director of the Designing Department of the National Defence Commission.
