The coal industry sector is taking positive practical steps to activate production as it makes in-depth study and discussion for implementing the decisions reached at the Fourth Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea.

A consultative meeting of officials of the Ministry of Coal Industry and relevant units has taken measures to secure enough prospected coal deposits and coal reserves by concentrating manpower and means on prospecting and tunnelling and to increase mining and transport capacities.

Operations are being conducted to consolidate material and technical foundations of coal mines and provide enough labour, equipment, materials and supplies for labour protection.

The discussions are directed at achieving the sustainable development of the coal industry by increasing coal production and strengthening material foundations while giving priority to science and technology.

Practical measures were taken according to the tasks set at the Party plenum and coal miners exerted themselves to implement the Party decisions, thereby overfulfilling the coal production plan of the ministry for the first 15 days of the new year.

Those at the Pukchang Area Youth Coal-mining Complex, who have carried out daily production plans since the beginning of this year, produced more coal than planned in the first 15 days.

The Tukjang and Kujang area coal-mining complexes have also increased production every day by channelling efforts into the development of new coalfields and the increase of transport capacity.
