Increased Production and Economization, Driving Force for Economic Development in DPRK

Date: 06/04/2020 | Source: Naenara (En) | Read original version at source

A vigorous drive to increase production and practice economy is now in full swing in the DPRK which is smashing straight through all the barriers in the way of its advance by dint of the spirit of self-reliance.

The Fifth Plenary Meeting of the Seventh Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea held in December last year defined that the models to be copied in the present era are the patriotic working people who regard the spirit of economy as part of their mental qualities, as well as the labour-, energy-, cost-, and land-saving enterprises. Accordingly, it became the main current of the country to produce and build more with less expenditure of manpower, materials and funds.

The high-pitched enthusiasm of working people and their socialist emulation campaign are giving strong impetus to the drive to increase production and practice economy.

The Korean people regard the increased production and economization as the factor for building up the foundations of the self-supporting economy and invigorating the economic development. Their zeal to build an economic power at any cost under the banner of achieving prosperity through self-reliance grew stronger with the above-said plenary meeting as the momentum.

The Korean workers regard the increased production and economization as a requirement for themselves as they are the masters of factories, farms and the country. Accordingly, they are making efforts to ensure high quality of products on the principle of giving priority to quality over quantity and establish a climate of economizing to the maximum on raw and other materials, including water, coal and electricity.

Socialist emulation campaign aimed at turning out high-quality goods in larger quantities goes full steam ahead between individuals, workteams, workshops and industrial establishments across the country. In particular, a hot wind of vigorous competition to increase the output of grains in low-yield fields and boost the per-hectare yields is sweeping the agricultural sector. Workers in the ferrous metal industry are making efforts to boost steel production with smaller amounts of coal by newly establishing energy-saving oxygen-blast furnaces. Industrial establishments are dynamically pushing ahead with the work for producing quality goods by recycling waste materials.

Technical innovation is regarded as the most effective way in the drive for increased production and economization. It embraces broad sections of working people, to say nothing of scientists and technicians. Workers at all factories, enterprises and farms in the country learn modern science and technology at sci-tech learning spaces that are connected online to the Sci-Tech Complex in Pyongyang, which renders great help for them to become inventors of new technology.

The technical forces of major industrial establishments, in cooperation with educational and scientific research institutes, are stepping up the work for technical updating and development and introduction of cutting-edge technologies. Meanwhile, various shock brigades of scientists and technicians and other technical renovation teams are promoting the campaign for increased production and economization.

For example, the Mangyongdae Kyonghung Foodstuff Factory in Pyongyang has carried out technical upgrading by pooling the wisdom and efforts of its workers. It replaced the existing one-ton-capacity circulating fluidized-bed boiler and two electric boilers with a two-ton-capacity circulating fluidized-bed boiler, with the result that it is netting huge profits while saving more than one million kilowatts of electricity in the last few months.

The DPRK is now carrying on many projects, including the construction of the Sunchon Phosphatic Fertilizer Factory and the establishment of a C1 chemical industry base.

Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un inspected the construction site of the factory in January this year and stressed the need to set it as the intentional goal to automate all its elements and processes and turn it into a labour-saving industry.
