It is the supreme principle of activities of the Workers’ Party of Korea to steadily improve the people’s material and cultural standards of living.
The Third Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the WPK held last June discussed as its major agenda items the issues of protecting the life and safety of the people, of stabilizing and improving their living standards and of improving and strengthening the Party’s childcare policy.
In the meeting, General Secretary Kim Jong Un said it is the main point of the plenary meeting to take decisive enforcement measures for immediately solving the urgent matters which attract the deepest interest of the people and to which they look forward, and issued a special order that he signed with sincerity to make even a bit of contribution to stabilizing the people's living.
In the past, too, the WPK always went deeper among the people to become their firm spiritual pillar and share weal and woe near them and devoted everything for their wellbeing whenever they were in trouble.
One day in September 2020 when the General Secretary inspected Kangbuk-ri of Kumchon County, North Hwanghae Province, which was splendidly rebuilt in a short time after being damaged severely by natural disaster, he asked over and over again if the residents were pleased, and said that he was really glad to hear that they were delighted and that the Party was undoubtedly right to do that if they were pleased.
The WPK has always given top priority to the people’s life, safety, interests and convenience and regarded everything as really good if they liked it.
That is why the General Secretary even got on a new model of trolley bus on a sultry day in August 2018, saying he would only feel at ease when he rode it first, and examined handles and other fittings one by one.
When new streets and leisure facilities such as Changjon, Mirae Scientists and Ryomyong streets and the Munsu Water Park were under construction, he visited the construction sites time and again despite the fierce heat and heavy rain.
Now that economic construction and people’s livelihood face greater obstacles due to the global pandemic crisis and unprecedented natural disasters, the WPK remains more faithful to the ideal of devoted service for the people.
Therefore, the Korean people call the WPK a motherly Party without reserve and the Party regards it as a unique honorary title and tries to make more efforts for the people.
