The Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea has decided to call the eighth Party congress at the Sixth Plenary Meeting of the Seventh WPK Central Committee.

The decision adopted at the plenary meeting said:

“Today our Party and people are carrying on the historic task set forth at the Seventh Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea while smashing straight through all the difficulties standing in our advance by organizing and waging an arduous revolutionary struggle.

“Through the indomitable struggle for implementing the decision made at the Seventh Congress of the WPK in the past the dignity and position of our state has been remarkably raised, the single-minded unity of the Party and the people further consolidated and a great revolutionary turn made in the building of the Party and its overall activities.

“On the other hand, the economy has failed to improve in the face of the persistently severe internal and external situations and unexpected manifold challenges, with the result that many of the planned goals for national economic growth have not yet been attained nor the people's living standards improved markedly.”

It said that the plenary meeting, after analysing and reviewing the experience and lessons drawn from the work in the past five years for building a powerful socialist country, decided to convene the Eighth Congress of the WPK in January 2021 in order to put forward a correct line of struggle and strategic and tactical policies on the basis of the new requirements of our developing revolution and the prevailing situation.

The agenda items of the Eighth Congress of the WPK will include the review of the work of the WPK Central Committee, that of the work of the WPK Central Auditing Commission, the revision of the rules of the WPK and the election of the Party’s central leadership body, it said.
