Pyongyang, February 25 (KCNA) -- Recorded in the DPRK's history of socialist construction is the Chollima age in which the Korean people had wrought world-startling miracles after the 1950-1953 Fatherland Liberation War.

In the difficult postwar rehabilitation period, the people of the DPRK performed such miracles as producing 120 000 tons of steel at a blooming mill with capacity of 60 000 tons and 270 000 tons of pig iron by equipment with a capacity of 190 000 tons, building a flat in a matter of 14 minutes, raising the gross industrial output value at 36.6 percent on a yearly average in 1957-1960 and realizing the socialist industrialization in a matter of 14 years.

The credit for the birth of this glorious Chollima age goes to the wise guidance of President Kim Il Sung.

Determined to overcome the difficulties in reliance on the popular masses' strength, the President came to the then Kangson Steel Plant in December Juche 45 (1956) to put its workers in the van of great revolutionary upsurge, saying it would be good for the country if it has 10 000 tons of rolled steel in addition.

And he visited the then Hwanghae Iron Works in January next year and many other industrial establishments and farms across the country to arouse all the people to the Chollima grand march.

His absolute trust in the people and energetic leadership served as the motive power in constantly working miracles and feats in socialist construction.

Under the slogans "Charge at the speed of Chollima!" and "One for all and all for one!", signal achievements were made in all the economic sectors including the metal and machine industries and the trait of collectivism prevailed in the whole country.

The spirit of Chollima Korea was also displayed in the sports and literature and art fields.

Indeed, the Chollima age provided by the President was a great heroic era in which ordinary workers, peasants and intellectuals grew into ardent patriots, able persons in creation and construction and persons strong in self-reliance. -0-
