New standards, new records

The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un stressed in the letter sent to the participants in the Eighth Congress of the General Federation of Trade Unions of Korea last May that trade unions should make the working sites seethe with creation of new standards and records by effectively conducting mass movements including the socialist emulation drive among fields, units, workshops and workteams for implementing the five-year plan, the movement to create model lathes following the example of Lathe No. 26 and the mass technical innovation drive.

At present the struggle to carry out the national economic plan for the first year of the new five-year plan is being waged vigorously all across the DPRK, with the result that production plans are overfulfilled and amazing construction speeds and new standards and records are created in succession.

New standards and records are being created every day at the construction sites of the Pothong Riverside Terraced Houses District and 10 000 flats in Pyongyang and thereby ideal streets for the people have revealed their magnificent appearance in a matter of some months.

An increasing number of workers of the textile industry have carried out their yearly economic plans and local industry factories are also overfulfilling their production plans by directing efforts into the development of new products.

It is the creative spirit and fighting mettle of the Korean people to speed up the building of a powerful socialist country through the creation of new standards and records in the face of shortages of everything and hardship.

And this spirit has served as the driving force behind the acceleration of socialist construction in the country.
