    Pyongyang, October 31 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Il, general secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea and chairman of the National Defence Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, gave field guidance to the work in the industrial field in Pyongyang. The first leg of his guidance was the Pyongyang 326 Electric Wire Factory. He looked round the room devoted to the history of the factory.
    Looking back with deep emotion on the glorious path of the development covered by the factory whose site was personally chosen by President Kim Il Sung, he said that the immortal revolutionary exploits performed by the President will shine long along with the history of the factory. He learned in detail about the technical equipment and production at the factory, going round its various production processes for a long while. He expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the factory has turned into the one belonging to the era of Songun, after seeing the production processes where a variety of electric wire was pouring out, good quality products of various kinds, work sites where cultured practices in production and life were on a high level and its compound reminiscent of a rest home.
    He highly appreciated and thanked the officials, workers and technicians of the factory for their efforts, noting that they have radically changed the appearance of the factory, while steadily boosting the production full of conviction and optimism about future without the slightest vacillation or hesitation under the difficult conditions where they were hard pressed for everything.
    He set forth tasks to be fulfilled by the factory and ways to do so, noting that the factory has a very important duty to perform as it is in charge of the production of electric wire basically needed for industrial construction.
    He spared time to watch a performance given by the art squad of the factory. He highly praised once again the work style of the workers at the factory making an uninterrupted advance and leap forward, saying that the factory is a model in all aspects including production, cultural life and supply service. The next leg of his guidance was the Pyongyang Elevator Factory.
    After acquainting himself with the production at the factory, he watched the newly manufactured horizontal jib tower crane at work and learned about its mechanism, capacity and the principle of its operation.
    He praised the efforts made by the officials, workers and technicians of the Pyongyang Elevator Factory and the Pyongyang Elevator Designing Institute, expressing satisfaction over the fact that they have manufactured an efficient crane in a matter of a few months by their own efforts and with indigenous technology and materials. He told them to mass produce the above-said type of cranes and supply them to the different domains of the national economy where heavy materials are handled, including the field of construction and trading ports.
    Then he saw a variety of bicycles produced by the Pyongyang Joint Venture Bicycle Factory, a joint undertaking of the Korean Committee for the Promotion of Economic Cooperation with Foreign Countries and the Tientsin Leading Digital Trade Co., Ltd., of China.
    He was satisfied to see various types of bicycles successfully manufactured for different purposes including those for urban, rural and mountainous uses and for children and the carriage of goods.
    He underscored the need to significantly increase the production of bicycles, noting that the use of bicycles is very good for satisfactorily solving the problem of transport, promoting the convenience of people in their living and their health and preventing the pollution in cities. He was accompanied by Pak Pong Ju, premier of the DPRK Cabinet, Pak Nam Gi, department director of the C.C., the WPK, and Ri Jae Il, first vice department director of the C.C., the WPK.
