He indicated the construction orientation and ways to turn the Yombunjin area into a wonderful resort for the people, saying that the Party will take a step for supplying funds and materials and the North Hamgyong Provincial Party Committee should encourage the officials and builders of the province to the campaign for implementing the behests of the leader so as to build the hotel by Oct. 10 next year and make a report of loyalty to Kim Jong Il.
Saying that Yombunjin is an ideal place for the people to take cultural rest anytime as its seashore scene is unusually beautiful and it has good traffic conditions as it is located near railways, shipping lane and roads, he stressed the need to turn the area into the Yombunjin coast park of peculiar style by building more lodging quarters and service facilities of various forms and purposes in the section of more than 600 meters along the shore around the hotel.
Pointing out that the ground design for exterior of the hotel is not good and its accommodation capacity is small, he gave instructions for the central and provincial designing forces to make an overall examination of the design and redesign it in keeping with modern tastes from a new angle with their concerted efforts.
Saying that he will send professional technical forces of national institutions to help the province conduct the finishing construction of the hotel with its own efforts, he stressed that the province should strengthen and develop its designing and building forces in this course.
He said that if modern hotels with adequate communal amenities are built in Yombunjin and its vicinity as there are scenic spots and famous hot springs, the people in the province and other people from across the country would take enough rest and lead a cultural and emotional life to the full while enjoying mountain-climbing, sea-bathing, angling, river-fishing and hot-spring cure in the area.
