Kim Jong Un, Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, Chairman of the DPRK State Affairs Commission and Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army, gave field guidance to the Sungni Motor Complex which has successfully carried out the task for producing new-style trucks given by the Party by displaying the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance.
He went round the Sungnisan Revolutionary Museum, the room dedicated to the history of the complex and the room preserving revolutionary historic mementoes.
He saw with deep emotion the photo of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il watching Sungni-58 truck produced by the Tokchon Automobile Plant, predecessor of the Sungni Motor Complex, on May 16, 1965. He said it was a photo of great significance and that the complex could make a great contribution to developing the economy and strengthening defence capability of the country by producing a lot of various trucks under the wise and careful leadership of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
He looked at the new-style five-ton trucks produced by the complex.
Watching with a bright smile on his face the trucks standing in rows full in the broad park, he said they were trucks of Juche Korea manufactured by our workers with their own efforts and he was encouraged and satisfied to see the trucks, extending militant greetings to the workers of the complex.
He personally drove a truck to learn in detail about its performance and technical specifications.He noted that the handsome and attractive five-ton trucks of our style were precious assets produced in the Mallima era.
He added that the newly produced five-ton trucks proved that the hostile forces' desperate efforts to block our advance make the indomitable spirit of the Korean workers stronger and make them produce a great world-startling miracle.
After going round the assembling shop, precision processing shop, engine shop and other places, he gave the production assignment for next year and set forth important tasks facing the complex.
It is very important for the country to produce trucks by itself in order to develop the economy and strengthen the national power, he noted, calling for remodelling and updating it as required by the new century so that it can mass-produce modern trucks.
He expressed belief that its officials and workers would successfully carry out the task advanced by the Party for remodelling and updating it and thus make a positive contribution to fully satisfying the daily-increasing demand for transportation.
He had a photo session with them.
Accompanying him were O Su Yong and Pak Thae Song, vice-chairmen of the WPK Central Committee, and Jo Yong Won, deputy department director of the WPK Central Committee.
