Pyongyang, February 9 (KCNA) -- All the Party members and other people across the country, much encouraged by the practical programme for struggle and advance set forth at the historic 8th Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), are full of confidence and enthusiasm to dynamically advance towards a fresh victory in the socialist construction by tiding over current challenges and difficulties by dint of single-minded unity and self-reliance under the leadership of the great Party.

According to the decision of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Committee, the 2nd Plenary Meeting of the 8th Central Committee of the WPK was convened to consider and decide on the Juche 110 (2021) plan of sectors at all levels for thoroughly implementing the strategic tasks set forth at the 8th Party Congress.

The 2nd Plenary Meeting of the 8th WPK Central Committee to indicate the road of the great struggle was held on February 8 amid expectation and concern of all the Party members.

The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un , general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, guided the plenary meeting.

Attending the meeting were members and alternate members of the WPK Central Committee.

Present as observers were vice directors of the relevant departments of the Party Central Committee, leading Party and administrative officials of commissions, ministries and national institutions, senior officials of the leading institutions at provincial level, chief secretaries of the city and county Party committees and leading Party and administrative officials of major industrial establishments.

The General Secretary appeared at the platform of the meeting with members of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Party Central Committee to guide the plenary meeting.

All the participants raised stormy cheers of "hurrah!" for the General Secretary who set a new goal for significant advance of the socialist construction with his outstanding idea and seasoned leadership art and wisely leads the historic advance of our people along the road of victory.

At the meeting the General Secretary referred to the main purport of convening the plenary meeting of the Party Central Committee, appreciating that the readiness and fighting spirit of officials, Party members and other people have remarkably grown and our revolution has firmly moved to the fresh stage of development with the 8th Party Congress as an occasion.

The General Secretary analyzed that positive and clear changes are being made among the Party members in their political consciousness and way of thinking in the course of the Party-wide acceptance and intensive study of the documents of the Party Congress. He added that the correct dissemination of the idea and spirit of the 8th Congress of the Party throughout the Party, through which the new fighting programme won the sympathy of the Party's rank and file, means the provision of the most valuable asset for a new victory of the socialist construction.

Saying that the Party Central Committee should powerfully lead the masses to the implementation of the decisions made at the Party Congress by valuing their elated spirit and giving further momentum to their enthusiasm, he stressed the need to provide the Party organizations and members with practical means for innovation which would help bring about practical change and substantial progress from the first year of the five-year plan.

He said that as the decisions made at the Party Congress are mid-and long-term tasks to be fulfilled by all sectors during the coming five years, it is necessary to examine this year's plans down to details at the plenary meeting and fix and issue them as the decisions of the Party Central Committee.

He evinced the determination and will of the Party Central Committee to take important measures to push forward the economic construction and provide the people with more stable and improved living conditions despite the persistent emergency anti-epidemic situation.

He proposed agenda items to be discussed at the plenary meeting, underscoring the need to make a serious study of a series of issues arising in thoroughly overcoming negative elements obstructing the socialist construction at present, further consolidating the Party organizationally and ideologically and enhancing the militant function and role of the Party organizations.

The plenary meeting passed the agenda items with unanimous approval.

Kim Jong Un began an important report on thoroughly implementing the first year's tasks of the five-year plan set forth by the 8th Party Congress.

The report sharply criticized the passive and self-protecting tendencies revealed by the state economic guidance organs in the course of setting this year's goals, and stressed the principled matters for overcoming the tendencies and organizing the economic work in an innovative and meticulous way.

Setting forth the tasks of different fields of the national economy, the report detailed the need to push forward with the production of iron and steel and chemical fertilizer by concentrating investment on the metal and chemical industries which were set as the main link in the chain of national economy, and to stoutly accelerate the work of expanding the production capacity on the basis of a scientific guarantee.

It also indicated important goals to be achieved this year by key industrial fields including electric power and coal industries and by the fields of railway transport, construction and building materials, light industry and commerce, and practical ways to attain them.

Listening to the report made by the General Secretary, the participants reproached themselves for failing to apply the idea and spirit of the Party Congress to the first year's operation for implementing the new five-year plan and not living up to the high expectation of the Party and the people.

All the participants are carefully listening to the report by the General Secretary, keenly feeling how they should think and exert their efforts to discharge their important responsibilities as leading officials of the revolution in the present crucial period aspiring after fresh innovation, courageous creation and steady progress.

The plenary meeting goes on. -0-
