The Fifth Political Bureau Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) took place at the office building of the Party Central Committee on December 1.

Kim Jong Un, general secretary of the WPK, was present at the meeting.

Also present at the meeting were members of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK and members and alternate members of the Political Bureau of the Party Central Committee.

The meeting discussed the issue of convening the Fourth Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the WPK.

The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un presided over the meeting.

General Secretary Kim Jong Un referred to the fact that the major policy targets decided at the Eighth Party Congress have been pushed forward forcefully and militantly all the year round thanks to the correct guidance of the Party Central Committee though difficulties still lie in developing the country's economy.

He said that it is very encouraging that positive changes were made in the overall state affairs including politics, economy, culture, and national defence as evidenced by the stable management of the state economy and great successes made in the agricultural and construction sectors prioritized by our Party, adding that every field accumulated valuable experiences needed for the future development in this course.

Saying that the successes registered by us show that the overall affairs that had been planned to lay a foundation for the economic development of the country and the improvement of people's living standard have been vigorously pushed forward and that they give self-confidence in a fresh victory of our own-style socialism, he noted that the appraisal of this year by the Party Central Committee is that it is the one of victory in general.

Noting that next year will be an important one as we should wage a very giant struggle as much as we did this year, he said that the Party Central Committee should work out the plans for the new year well to be dynamic, onward, scientific and detailed, and consolidate the foundation for implementing the five-year plan.

He gave assignments for the preparation of the plenary meeting.

The Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK adopted a resolution on convening the Fourth Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the Party late in December and discussed what to put on the agenda of the plenary meeting.
