Kim Jong Un, Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army, visited the Wonsan Disabled Soldiers’ Bag Factory, together with his wife Ri Sol Ju.
He was accompanied by Han Kwang Sang and Jo Yong Won, senior officials of the WPK Central Committee.
He looked round the factory to familiarize himself with the production of schoolbags.
Now that each province has laid sound material and technical foundations to produce hundreds of thousands of schoolbags, he said, it is time to launch a campaign to raise the quality of bags and concentrate efforts on the campaign. Bag factories in each province should rein in quality control and make exact demands on it, thus ensuring the same quality of the bags supplied to the children and students across the country, he noted.
It is the intention of our Party, he added, to supply good homemade notebooks, bags, school things and uniforms to the children and students so that they could cultivate patriotism to cherish and value our own things from childhood. He repeatedly requested the officials and employees of the bag factories around the country to devote themselves to making each bag qualitatively, just like a mother does for her children.
He highly appreciated the officials and employees of the factory who have renovated it by their own efforts, technology and materials in a short time and strived to put the production on a normal footing at high levels. And he had a photograph taken with them.
Pointing to the need to value, respect and take good care of the disabled soldiers as the treasures of the country, he asked the provincial Party committee to pay more heed to and help the factory so that its employees could continue to carry on the revolution working up beads of sweat in the worthwhile, honourable work for the younger generations.
