Ri Il Hwan, member of the Political Bureau and secretary of the WPK Central Committee, made a report.
He said that the three-revolution red flag movement and the three-revolution team movement are the mass movements of the highest form and the powerful revolutionary mode of our era to which the original idea of the WPK on the mass movement is thoroughly applied and whose validity and vitality have been fully displayed in the historic course of the revolution and construction.
He referred to the immortal leadership exploits of the peerlessly great men who had led socialist construction along the road of victory while regarding the three-revolution red flag movement and the three-revolution team movement as the powerful weapon for carrying out the three revolutions, the general line of the WPK.
He said that President Kim Il Sung advanced, for the first time in history, the idea that the revolution should be carried on in the ideological, technological and cultural sectors even after the establishment of socialist system, put forward the three revolutions as the strategic line for socialist construction, and made efforts to develop the three-revolution red flag movement and the three-revolution team movement.
He referred to the fact that Chairman Kim Jong Il clarified the idea that the struggle to implement the three-revolution line is a historic struggle for rapidly transforming the appearance of the country in all spheres and stepping into communism ahead of others and that he made great efforts to develop the three-revolution red flag movement and the three-revolution team movement.
He stressed that the undying revolutionary feats performed by the President and the Chairman in developing the above-said movements are being successfully carried forward and developed by the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un .
He referred to the achievements made after the Fourth Conference of the Forerunners in the Three-Revolution Red Flag Movement and the national meeting of active three-revolution team members.
He said that as a result of the vigorous ideological revolution through the three-revolution red flag movement, the ideological and political might, the primary motive power of the Korean revolution, has increased remarkably and the ranks of staunch revolutionaries boundlessly loyal to the leader have grown and expanded.
The technical revolution made headway in the course of the three-revolution red flag movement, thereby putting the scientific and technical power of the country on a higher level and consolidating the self-sustaining foundation of the national economy, he said.
He referred to the development made in the range of cultural life of our people and the construction of socialist civilization.
He said that sci-tech learning spaces have been built across the country as part of the drive to make all the people well versed in science and technology, and broad sections of people have been enrolled in the study-while-you-work system to study hard, which has led to producing many Order of the Three-Revolution Red Flag laureates possessed of modern science and technology.
The report also dealt with some faults witnessed in the three-revolution red flag movement and the three-revolution team work by failing to measure up to the intention of the Party and the requirements of the developing revolution, as well as their causes.
A key to building up one's own driving force in every way and successfully tiding over the present difficulties lies in turning the three-revolution red flag movement and the three-revolution team work into powerful mass movements of propelling socialist construction and a substantial power of propelling the development of relevant units, the reporter said, calling for bringing about a fundamental turn in the three-revolution red flag movement and the three-revolution team work with the on-going conference as an occasion.
He underscored the need to decisively improve the Party guidance and the administrative and technical guidance over the three-revolution red flag movement and three-revolution team work.
Saying that when the whole country seethes with the three revolutions, eye-opening changes will be brought about in the overall socialist construction and our cause will be rapidly propelled, he called for materializing at an early date the high ambition and ideal of our Party to hasten the day of victory in socialism and communism by bringing about a great change in the three-revolution red flag movement and the three-revolution team work.
