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 Central Committee of the WPK, inspected the Pukchang Thermal Power Complex and the Namyang Coal Mine of the Tokchon Area Coal-mining Complex.

Looking round the steel casting workshop of the complex, he stressed the need to solve the problems arising in completing the production line and to put production on a normal track by increasing the production of fireproof materials.

At the belt pit of the Namyang Coal Mine, he encouraged officials and technicians who made a breakthrough in increasing production by raising the level of mechanization of coal transport. He said top priority should be given to tunnelling and equipment operated at full capacity by strengthening self-checking and self-repair in order to achieve the increased production goal of the 80-day campaign.

The field consultative meetings discussed the problems arising in carefully organizing operation and command for increased power generation, intensifying research into improving the ratio of home-made parts in relevant units and pushing ahead with coal production in a far-sighted way during the campaign, and took measures to solve them.
