Kim Jong Un, President of the State Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, is consistent in some points in his leadership for the comprehensive development of socialism of his country.
First, he firmly maintains the principle of formulating lines and policies of the Party and government with an eye to the distant future of the country.
Second, he leads his people to create anything whatsoever in a flawless way so that they can be no inferior even by the standard of 50 years or 100 years ahead.
Once he said: As people plant a tree hoping that it would grow to be a giant tree in the future, we should carry on the revolution with an eye to the distant future; to struggle looking far into the distant future–this is the outlook on the revolution and the future revolutionaries must acquire.
Even though the current situation is difficult and trials and hardships crop up, he puts forward all lines and policies and plans and pushes forward all undertakings carefully and in a prospective way looking far into the future, so as to ensure a sustained development of the state and a dignified life of the coming generations.
The policy of enforcing universal 12-year compulsory education is an example. Previously the DPRK enforced universal 11-year compulsory education inclusive of compulsory one-year preschool education. However, Kim Jong Un, looking into the distant future of the country, decided to introduce 12-year compulsory education for which enormous national expenditure is required. Such a decision is impossible to be made without a responsible attitude towards the future when the country is under severe sanctions and blockade of the hostile forces and constant nuclear threat by the US.
His far-sightedness can be seen also through the Workers’ Party of Korea’s policy of supplying nutritious foods including dairy products to all the children across the country at state expense. What he said is so impressive: If the children who are born and grow up on this land are fed well and raised healthily in a good environment from their childhood, so much vibrant liveliness and vitality will overflow in our society after 20 or 30 years and the national power of our Republic will grow greater.
In economic construction he advocates the line of building an independent national economy which the country has consistently maintained since the early years of its founding so as to ensure its sustained development. On major occasions including the seventh and eighth congresses of the WPK and in his policy speeches at the sessions of the Supreme People’s Assembly of the DPRK, he repeatedly stressed the need to continuously uphold the banner of self-reliance and self-development in economic construction.\
As a result, the country is forcefully pushing forward the work of turning its overall economic sectors including the metallurgical, chemical and electric power industries into independent ones which rely on the raw materials and fuel abundant in the country. The iron producing system suitable for the actual situation of the country has been further perfected technically, so that steel output is steadily increasing, and construction of a C1 chemical industry base is under way. All this leads to the consolidation of the foundations of the self-supporting economy. According to his line of ushering in a new era of rural rejuvenation, the country is vigorously conducting the work of transforming the countryside into a more civilized and prospering socialist ideal land.
Kim Jong Un is working with devotion to guarantee the overall and eternal prosperity of the state. He guided several conferences, the first of their kinds in the history of the WPK, including the First Workshop for Chief Secretaries of City and County Committees of the Workers’ Party of Korea and the Special Workshop for Officials in the Party Life Guidance Sections of Organizational Departments of Party Committees at All Levels of the Workers’ Party of Korea, and attended plenary meetings of the WPK Central Committee and sessions of the Supreme People’s Assembly of the DPRK, presenting long-term platforms for the development of the Party and the state. In October this year he visited the Central Cadres Training School of the WPK, and gave a lecture, in which he advanced a long-term plan for Party building so that it can fulfil its mission and duty as an entity in charge of the destiny of the country and people.
He devotes ceaseless thinking and energy to ensuring that all the structures in the country are made perfect so that they can be no inferior even in the distant future. For example, he examined about 11 360 formation plans of Samjiyon so as to turn the city into a model mountain city, where national identity, modern character and the characteristic features of the northern alpine area are combined.
Under his energetic guidance many standard and model structures have recently sprung up in the country. Typical examples are the city of Samjiyon in Ryanggang Province; regional industry factories in Kimhwa County, Kangwon Province, which are a standard of regional industry development; Ryonpho Greenhouse Farm, which set a new standard for greenhouse farms; and the Pothong Riverside Terraced Houses District, a new standard of housing construction, which suites the reality of Korea, a country with many mountains.
All these creations constitute vivid examples, which show the civilization the Korean people will enjoy in the near future, and solid foundations for the prosperity and development of the country.
