The meetings of the machine industry sector were brimming over with the immense revolutionary enthusiasm to bring about an upsurge in the production campaign of the first year for implementing the decisions of the Eighth Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea that defined the machine industry as an important sector leading and hauling the overall economic sectors.

Speakers at the meetings of the construction and building materials sector expressed their resolve to fully discharge their responsibility in construction for realizing the Party’s plans.

Those at the meetings of the fishery sector pledged to direct efforts into strengthening the material and technical foundations including modernization of fishing vessels and implements, while launching a mass drive for aquaculture.

Officials and workers in the sectors of land management and ecological environment protection made firm resolves to turn out in the efforts with a fresh determination, bearing in mind that theirs are undertakings of strategic importance for protecting the lives and health of the people and improving the landscape of the country and for the future of the country.

Speakers at the meetings in the agricultural sector noted that they would become patriotic farmers defending the Party and revolution with rice, cherishing in mind that they are in charge of the major thrust area of socialist economic construction.
