The Phalhyang Dam of the Orangchon Power Station was wonderfully completed.

The Dam in Orangchon area is a grand edifice, a product of self-reliance displayed by the builders who surmounted manifold difficulties and trials to implement the behests of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il and the policies of the Party.

Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un learned in field about the Orangchon Power Station when the construction was almost at a suspension and saw to it that revolutionary measures were taken to finish the construction as early as possible. He led the people and builders of North Hamgyong Province to perform miracles and feats while placing great trust in them.

The completion of the gigantic Phalhyang Dam opened up a bright prospect for expediting the completion of the Orangchon Power Station as a large-scale hydro-electric power generation base, and this enabled to take a giant advance in solving the tense electricity issue of the country and energizing the economy of North Hamgyong Province.

The inauguration ceremony of the Dam took place on Wednesday.

Present there was Pak Pong Ju, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, vice-chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and vice-chairman of the WPK Central Committee.

Also present was Kim Jae Ryong, member of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Committee, member of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and premier of the Cabinet.

Among the participants of the ceremony were O Su Yong, vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the WPK, Tong Jong Ho, vice-premier, Ri Hi Yong, chairman of the North Hamgyong Provincial Committee of the WPK, Jang Hyok, minister of Railways, Kwon Song Ho, minister of State Construction Control, officials concerned, officers and men of the Korean People's Army, builders, employees of the power station and working people in the province.

Kim Jae Ryong made a speech.

He said that Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il unfolded the grandiose plan to build a power station in Orangchon area rich in water-power resources, chose the location of the Phalhyang Dam and led the struggle to build the power station into the edifice of eternal value.

He added that the great trust and energetic guidance provided by Kim Jong Un by arousing the builders of the power station into the creation of new feats have become the source of tremendous might that built the Dam.

He noted that the builders and people of North Hamgyong Province performed labor feats with do-or-die will and fighting traits of self-reliance, regarding the construction site as the foremost front of implementing the behests of the leaders and defending the Party's policies.

He called on all the officials, Party members and other working people to fulfill without fail the goal of the five-year strategy for national economic development and create ceaseless innovations in the construction of the power station on the strength of the coordinated army-people operation.

Pak Pong Ju cut the tape following the speech.

At the end of the ceremony, the senior Party and government officials looked round the Dam and, together with the participants, they watched the chorus of shock brigade members and supporters "Song of Faith on Dam for Devotedly Defending Leader" given in congratulation of the completion of the Dam.
