The metallurgical industry sector set forth a high goal of consolidating production foundations and expanding productivity and directs efforts to this end.

The Chollima Steel Complex launched a campaign for making a breakthrough in reenergizing production and the Kim Chaek and Hwanghae iron and steel complexes improved their production capacities and put forward the preparations for remodelling the production processes into energy-saving ones.

The Musan Mining Complex and Unnyul and Jaeryong mines are overfulfilling their plans every day.

The chemical industry sector is bracing itself up as befitting the core industry of the country.

Chemical scientists buckled down to research into core technologies with a determination to open up a new chapter in the development of the nation’s chemical industry during the period of the new five-year plan by founding a chemical industry relying on domestic materials.

The Hungnam Fertilizer Complex put the production of nitrogenous fertilizer on normal footing. The Sunchon Phosphate Fertilizer Factory concentrates all efforts on completing the technical process for normalizing the production of high-concentration ammonium phosphate fertilizer in the shortest possible time.

The Namhung Youth Chemical Complex speeds up the project for increasing production capacity and pushes ahead with the renovation and modernization of several chemical factories.

The Pukchang and Pyongyang thermal power complexes work to raise their power generation capacities, while stepping up the introduction of a technology for reducing the consumption of heavy oil.

The Sunchon Area Youth Coal-mining Complex and Kaechon and Hamnam area coal-mining complexes, among other coal-mining units, are giving priority to prospecting and tunnelling works so as to work out promising coal fields and secure coal pits and coal deposits.

An intensive study and discussions are going on in the machine-building industry sector on the problem of carrying out the tasks set forth at the Eighth Party Congress on the basis of practical and scientific calculations.

A renovation project is making headway at the Kumsong Tractor Factory, and major factories and enterprises in the sector including the Ryongsong Machine Complex, Taean Heavy Machine Complex and Ragwon General Machine Enterprise are directing efforts to building the production foundations capable of developing and manufacturing any up-to-date machines and facilities.

The mining industry sector is also conducting study and discussions geared to finding out the ways to accomplish the goals and tasks to be achieved in the period of the new five-year plan, while pushing forward with the reinforcement of production foundations.
