Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, attended the inaugural ceremony for the Sunchon Phosphate Fertilizer Factory held on May Day.

The factory is a model and standard establishment in the sector of the chemical industry which fully embodies the requirements of Juche-orientation and modernization and which is perfect in terms of production, architecture and protection of ecological environment.

The establishment of the Juche-based phosphate fertilizer industry relying on domestic efforts, technology and raw materials under the wise leadership of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un constitutes a breakthrough in adding eternal brilliance to the immortal exploits performed by President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il and in drastically increasing grain production.

Amid the playing of welcome music, Kim Jong Un appeared at the venue of the ceremony.

Pak Pong Ju, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Committee, vice-chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and vice-chairman of the WPK Central Committee, attended the ceremony.

Also present at the event were Premier Kim Jae Ryong, member of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Committee and member of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK, Kim Tok Hun and Pak Thae Song, vice-chairmen of the WPK Central Committee, Kim Yo Jong and Jo Yong Won, first deputy department directors of the WPK Central Committee, other officials of the WPK Central Committee, army and civilian officials and builders who took part in the construction and working people of South Phyongan Province.

Pak Pong Ju in an inaugural speech described the completion of the fertilizer factory as a great auspicious event which has powerfully demonstrated the revolutionary spirit of the heroic Korean working class who are determined to win a fresh victory in socialist construction through a courageous frontal offensive to achieve a breakthrough under the leadership of the great Party and the tremendous might of the DPRK state and brought great delight to all the agricultural workers and other Korean people.

He referred to the fact that the Supreme Leader had set forth the militant task of building the factory, which mass-produces high-concentration ammonium phosphate fertilizer urgently needed in agricultural production, in a modern and big way and provided energetic guidance so that it could be built as a model factory in the chemical industry sector and as a labour-saving enterprise whose all production processes are automated and put on lines.

He said that the builders, scientists and soldier builders, who made the spirit of devotedly implementing Party policies as part of their mental qualities, devotedly strived to hasten the day of completion as they waged a drive of loyalty and a fierce 24-7 struggle and settled in an original way lots of scientific and technological problems arising in putting the phosphate fertilizer industry on a Juche basis.

He called for getting rallied close around the Supreme Leader and giving fuller play to the fighting zeal for the frontal offensive to make a breakthrough so as to continue to register notable achievements of self-reliance, while making a dynamic advance full of confidence in victory for the prosperity of the socialist country.

All the participants burst into thunderous cheers as they looked up to the Supreme Leader.

Kim Jong Un warmly waved back to the cheering builders and other people.

As he was briefed about the production processes of the factory he looked round several places including the raw material processing process, yellow phosphorus production process, ammonium phosphate fertilizer production process and packaging process.

Feasting his eyes on the overall view of the wonderfully built factory, he said with deep emotion that President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il, who had worked heart and soul to solve the food problem for the people, would have greatly been pleased if they had received the report that the modern phosphate fertilizer factory has been built.

Now our agricultural workers have become able to concentrate on achieving the grain production target set by the Party without worry, he said, describing the factory as the proud fruition that those who absolutely follow Party policies brought about on the strength of army-people unity. And he highly appreciated the feats performed by all the builders, scientists and technicians.

He expressed satisfaction with the fact that the lecturers and researchers of Kim Chaek University of Technology established an efficient integrated manufacturing system of the factory in cooperation with relevant units, and repeatedly emphasized that talents are a great resource of a country and a motive force for its development and that the training of talents is a political issue to which the Party gives top priority.

The completion of the Sunchon Phosphate Fertilizer Factory is the first success made after the Fifth Plenary Meeting of the Seventh Central Committee of the WPK and an important occasion for making the chemical industry of the country leap a stage further, he said, stressing the need to more fiercely raise the flame of achieving prosperity by dint of self-reliance in all fields of building a powerful country with the valuable success as a spark.

He specified tasks to be tackled in the management and operation of the factory including the matter of taking thoroughgoing measures for the provision of raw materials for putting phosphate fertilizer production on a normal footing, that of further rounding off the integrated manufacturing system and ensuring the stable operation of production processes and that of paying special attention to environmental protection.

He set forth the tasks and ways for developing the country’s chemical industry in the correct direction as required by the new century including the rebuilding and updating of fertilizer factories as a whole and the building of more chemical industry bases.
