Our people are recalling with deep emotion on the dedication of the Chairman Kim Jong Il to regional development of the country when they are greeting the Day of the Rising Star, the most auspicious day of our nation while conducting vigorously all-people struggle for opening up a new era of overall national prosperity.

Bearing in his mind the firm will to build a socialist powerful country on this land as wished by President Kim Il Sung , Chairman Kim Jong Il provided the guiding principle for regional development of the country and energetically led the regional development giving continued field guidance throughout his lifetime.

Chairman Kim Jong Il provided guiding principles for regional development by publishing immortal classic works like “The Status and Role of County in Socialist Construction” , “The Validity of Our Party’s Policy of Developing Local Industry” , “Let Us Bring About a Fresh Improvement in the People’s Standard of Living by Enhancing the Role of County” . He also made it possible to effect rapid progress in the development of regional economies, visiting factories, enterprises and rural areas across the country.

Chairman Kim Jong Il kept on travelling a total of over 1,674,610 ri to give field guidance to more than 14,290 units across the country which is equivalent to going around the earth nearly 17 times. The fact shows as it is the devotion for the country and the people made by the Chairman Kim Jong Il during his whole lifetime.

Under the energetic leadership of Chairman Kim Jong Il , our country laid solid foundations for the development of the regional economy and improvement of the people’s living standard even in the harshest period of arduous march and forced march: important factories and enterprises of the country were modernized, modern factories and medium and small-sized power stations were built in many parts of the country and land realignment and construction of gravity-fed waterways, the great far-reaching nature-transforming projects were successfully carried out in the agricultural sector.

Thanks to respected Comrade Kim Jong Un , the patriotic desire to build a powerful country cherished by Chairman Kim Jong Il is now being fulfilled more creditably .

On January 15, 2024, respected Comrade Kim Jong Un put forward the “regional development 20×10 policy” in the important policy speech delivered at the 10 th Session of the 14 th Supreme People’s Assembly of the DPRK. This policy is to develop onto a higher stage the basic material and cultural living standards of the regional people across the country at the earliest date possible by pushing forward with the regional industrial development.

“Regional development 20×10 policy” is a gigantic change and revolution to raise on one stage the basic material and cultural living standards of the people in all cities and counties across the country in 10 years by building without fail the modern regional industry factories in 20 counties every year.

It is the steadfast will of our Party and government to eliminate the differences between the capital city and the provinces and the imbalance between regions and to achieve simultaneous, balanced and rapid development in all parts of the country.

Under the wise leadership of respected Comrade Kim Jong Un , who invariably carries on the will of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il , our Party’s cause to open up a new era of overall national prosperity will surely be realized on this land.
