The respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un inspected the Orangchon Power Station under construction.

He exchanged greetings with the officials who greeted him, appreciating their services. He said that he came to personally learn about the situation and take measures as the project has not yet been completed although it has been more than 30 years since President Kim Il Sung gave an instruction to build the power station.

He first went round the construction site of the Phalhyang Dam.

Pointing out that only 70 percent of the project has been done although it has been 17 years since the construction started, he acquainted himself with the reason of the delayed project.

Now upper organs, in disregard of the situation of lower organs, only make a wordplay that the construction of the Orangchon Power Station is a task to be fulfilled in the period of the 5-year strategy for the national economic development, he said, pointing out that the Cabinet has only specified the project as a target project that should be accelerated with concentration of efforts in reports of its series of joint meetings or on the list of its stereotyped work plan but never taken any practical and blitz measure for economic and organizational work. He reprimanded the leading officials of the Cabinet for leaving the project to the province only and not paying attention to it.

Worse still, the officials who are responsible for the national economy make their appearances in every inaugural ceremony of power stations though they never inspected the power stations and dams when they were under construction, he added.

Noting that if the Orangchon Power Station is constructed, it will tangibly contribute to promoting the economy and people's livelihood in North Hamgyong Province where industrial establishments are located densely, he criticized the officials of the province and county for having not sent a letter to him in connection with the situation though they were much concerned of the delayed construction of the power station which is vital and urgent for the work of the province, and for having neither worked in a far-sighted manner nor focused their effort on the construction for the mere reason that it gives no immediate benefits but requires heavy investment.

He took a revolutionary measure by giving an instruction for the Party Central Committee to provide organizational guidance to the construction of the dam and the power station by mobilizing all party organizations and members and thus complete the project by October 10 next year.

Then, he went round the Orangchon Power Station No. 5.

Watching generating equipment installed at the power station, he said highly efficient and modern generating equipment should be installed and operated in full capacity to steadily increase the production of electricity, pointing out that the power station was built with so much effort but it fails to produce electricity in full capacity.

Noting that if the loss of electricity in transmission is decreased, electricity reserves equivalent to building some new power stations will be gained, he said produced electricity should be effectively used by taking a decisive measure to decrease the loss of electricity in transmission though it may require much effort.

Noting that the builders of the power station have so far done much with pure conscience despite difficulties, whether their efforts are known or not, and the dam is growing thanks to the intense loyalty and inexhaustible strength of the builders who have performed labor feats for implementing the Party policy, he ardently called on the whole country to turn out in the general drive, keeping step with the builders.

He was accompanied by Hwang Pyong So, Jo Yong Won, O Il Jong and Kim Yong Su, senior officials of the Workers' Party of Korea Central Committee.
