Pyongyang, March 17 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il gave on-the-spot guidance to the Sungri Motor Complex.

He first went round the monument to the on-the-spot guidance given by President Kim Il Sung standing in the compound of the complex and historical buildings.

Kim Il Sung visited the complex 14 times since the historic day he chose the site of the complex on October 20, 1950, foreseeing the future of the triumphant country. He clearly indicated the road to be followed by the complex and worked heart and soul for the development of the motor industry.

A new history of the motor industry began in the country and a powerful motor production base appeared at the foot of Mt. Sungri thanks to the clairvoyant wisdom and wise leadership of the President, he said, adding that the undying revolutionary exploits of the President will shine long in the history of the country.

He highly appreciated the feats performed by the complex, saying that its workers have produced a large number of trucks over the past more than half century since 1958 when they produced the first truck, thus making a great contribution to the economic development of the country.

Then he looked round newly made trucks and different places of the complex to acquaint himself in detail with the production, management and operation of the complex.

He set the goals to be attained by the complex and tasks and ways to do so.

He stressed that what is most important for rapidly increasing the motor production is to put the modernization and scientification of the complex on a high level.

He also emphasized that in order to put the complex on a modern and scientific basis it is necessary to effectively carry out the technological updating of the main processes according to a carefully worked out operation, to begin with, and the domains related to the complex should produce necessary equipment and supply them to it in time.

Underscoring the need to boost the state support to the complex so as to complete the huge technological updating of the complex in a brief span of time, he personally unraveled knotty problems on the spot.

Familiarizing himself with the brisk work to spruce up the complex, he called on the workers high in the level of revolutionary spirit and organization to take the lead in the cultured practices in production and life, too.

He said that in order to give full play to the revolutionary enthusiasm of the workers leading officials of the complex should meticulously conduct the organizational and political work and minutely organize economic affairs and pay deep attention to the supply service for the employees.

He noted that all the party members and other working people of the complex can creditably fulfill the tasks set forth this time if they work in the same spirit as displayed by them in the 1970s when they attained the goal of 10,000 trucks.

He was accompanied by Secretary Kim Ki Nam and Department Director Pak Nam Gi of the WPK Central Committee.
