    Pyongyang, September 3 (KCNA) -- The socialist rural economy system in the DPRK is the socialist collective economy one. The essential advantages of the system lie in that it is strictly based on the principle of collectivism. Rodong Sinmun Saturday says this in a by-lined article. The fundamental source of the advantages and vitality of socialism lies in that collectivism is what keeps socialism alive and it is steadily growing stronger on the basis of collectivism, the article notes, and goes on:
    The socialist rural economy system is a socialist economic form based on the collective ownership of productive means. Socialism can fully display its advantages only when this economy is managed in a collectivist manner.
    It is the way of winning the victory of socialism to firmly uphold and steadily develop the advantageous rural economy system in the DPRK
    This system is an advantageous one as it makes it possible to bring about uninterrupted surge in production by giving full play to the revolutionary zeal and creative ingenuity of masses and an advanced one for rapidly boosting the agricultural production by consolidating the material and technical foundation in the rural areas. Only on the basis of collectivism is it possible to give full play to the creative wisdom and ingenuity of the working people in agricultural production. The rural base in the DPRK is now growing stronger and great successes are being made in the agricultural production. A special mention should be made of the fact that the Workers' Party of Korea laid down a policy calling for concentrating all forces on farming this year, thus enabling the whole party and country and all the people to finish the rice transplantation in time. This is a brilliant fruition of the wise guidance provided by the WPK for steadily developing the rural economy system with main emphasis on the principle of collectivism.
    The above-said system is the most advanced socialist collective economic system which is suited to the specific conditions of the country and makes it possible to boost the agricultural production at a high rate, it concludes.
