The 80-day campaign is going full steam ahead in the DPRK to greet the Eighth Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea with remarkable successes.
The whole population is striving to make innovations in all workplaces.
It is a proud tradition of the Korean people to add lustre to Party congresses with great achievements.
The seven rounds of the WPK congresses since its foundation are shining in the history of the DPRK along with faithful and patriotic struggles of the people across the country.
The Second Congress of the WPK was celebrated with the victorious completion of the national economic plan for 1947, the first of its kind in the country’s history.
The Third Congress held in April 1956, three years after the Fatherland Liberation War, was greeted with the brilliant successes in the post-war rehabilitation which demonstrated the might of heroic Korea.
The Korean people unanimously supported the basic line of economic construction in the post-war period set forth by President Kim Il Sung and performed miracles in all sectors of the national economy, achieving a 31 percent growth in the industrial output of state-run and cooperative enterprises in the first quarter of 1956 as compared to the corresponding period of the previous year.
Their enthusiasm for greeting Party congresses with high political zeal and labour feats bubbled up in the run-up to the Fourth Congress of the WPK.
With the completion of the first five-year economic plan in just two and half years amid the flames of great Chollima advance, the DPRK became a socialist industrial-agricultural state with firm foundations of the independent national economy and entered the period of overall socialist construction with the accomplishment of the task of laying the foundations of socialism.
On the occasion of the Fifth WPK Congress, the Kangson speed was created for attaining the goals of the first seven-year plan, which was carried out to accomplish the historic cause of socialist industrialization.
Following in the tradition, they waged a 100-day campaign ahead of the Sixth Congress.
They vigorously conducted the three revolutions—ideological, technological and cultural, and fulfilled the economic plan for 1980 before October when the Party Congress was held.
As they waged the unprecedented struggle for defending socialism and went through the Arduous March and forced march which were without example in history after the Sixth Congress, the people strengthened their complete trust in the Party and confidence in the victory of socialism.
They conducted a 70-day campaign before the Seventh Congress of the Party in May 2016 to present to the congress gifts of great feats in the fields of different industries, agriculture, construction, scientific research and sports.
