Pyongyang, May 13 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il gave on-the-spot guidance to various units in Kilju County and Kim Chaek City of North Hamgyong Province.
The first leg of his guidance was the Kilju Farm.
Going round the room for the dissemination of scientific and technological knowledge, a thrashing ground, a seed store, a nursery, a fish farm, a bath house, a barber's and other places, he was greatly satisfied to learn that the village has turned into a socialist land of bliss, a cradle of happiness, good to work and live in. He put forward the tasks to be fulfilled by the farm.
The per-hectare yield should be decisively raised to settle the food problem under the conditions of our country where the area of cultivated land is limited, he noted, adding that to this end it is necessary to put the farming on a scientific and technological basis as required by the Juche method of farming the advantages of which have been proved in practice and strictly adhere to the principle of the right crop on the right soil and the right crop in the right time.
In order to do the labor-consuming farm work with ease it is imperative to realize the comprehensive mechanization and steadily improve the management including labor organization, he noted.
He visited the family of ex-serviceman Sim Yong Chol of Workteam No. 4, which moved to a new house. He gave a warm pep talk to him and his family that are devoting themselves to the agricultural front, pleased to learn that they are leading the same happy life in the modern house with all amenities as that in a city.
The next leg of his guidance was the Kim Chaek Taehung Fishery Enterprise.
After looking round the room devoted to the history of the enterprise, he visited the canned fish workteam, a fish meal workteam and a wharf to acquaint himself in detail with the technological equipment and production there. He appreciated the efforts made by the officials and workers of the enterprise, saying that they have produced a lot of aquatic products and supplied them to the people in the past.
He underscored the need to more thoroughly establish a scientific fishing system and, at the same time, do the work to search for new fishing grounds under a long-term plan in order to catch fish under the changed fishing conditions.
After learning about sea culture including kelp, scallop and sea cucumber conducted by the enterprise, he called for simultaneously pushing forward fishing and sea culture and set forth tasks to be fulfilled to develop the fishing industry and ways to do so.
He went round the monument to the victory in the battle in the northern area of Korea, a historic relic.
The monument in Rimmyong-ri, Kim Chaek City, was erected in 1708 to commemorate the great victory Jong Mun Bu's volunteer corps won by decisively wiping out the Japanese aggression troops in Jangphyong, Rimmyong, Tanchon, Paekthap and other areas after their intrusion into Hamgyong Province during the Imjin Patriotic War (1592-98).
After being briefed on the monument, he went round it and acquainted himself with its preservation, management and use.
The monument is significant for studying the history of the struggle of our ancestors who valiantly fought against the enemy Japan's invasion and educating the younger generation in the Korean nation-first idea, he said, stressing the need to preserve and manage the monument, the precious historic relic, with good care and conduct effective education through it.
During his on-the-spot guidance to North Hamgyong Province, he got familiar with the overall work of the province and expressed great satisfaction over the fact that it has done a lot of work in less than one year since his on-the-spot guidance given in August last year.
He was accompanied by Hong Sok Hyong, chief secretary of the North Hamgyong Provincial Committee of the WPK, and Kim Ki Nam, secretary of the C.C., WPK.
