Pyongyang, March 8 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il has performed an outstanding exploit by bringing about an epoch-making change in the Juche-oriented vinalon industry true to the behests of President Kim Il Sung and the workers of Songun Korea have performed heroic feats by making the mass-production of vinalon an eye-opening reality. The Korean Central News Agency Monday released a detailed report on the construction of a vinalon factory to get these exploits eternally recorded in the history of building a thriving nation.

Referring to the undying leadership provided by the peerlessly great persons for the development of the Juche-oriented vinalon industry, the report said:

The Juche-oriented vinalon industry was initiated and established by Kim Il Sung with great care.

Kim Il Sung unrolled a grandiose plan to build the vinalon industry when the Fatherland Liberation War was at its height and personally chose the site for a vinalon factory in the days of the great Chollima upswing in the post-war period. He aroused the whole country to create "vinalon speed" in completing a big city of vinalon industry in a matter of a little over one year.

He named the precious fiber produced by the efforts of Koreans and with indigenous technology and resources "vinalon," Juche-oriented and national name, and provided field guidance to the factory dozens of times, steering its work at every phase of its development. Under his wise leadership the February 8 Vinalon Complex developed into a large vinalon production center.

A new history of changes was opened in the vinalon industry in the DPRK in the era of Songun under the patriotic and devoted leadership of Kim Jong Il.

He visited the complex on Feb. 4, Juche 98 (2009), the first year of the drive for a great surge, and gave an order of the Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army to complete the construction of the vinalon production process in a matter of one year instead of several years envisaged earlier.

Early in last February he visited the complex where its modernization was realized at a high level. There he was so pleased with the fact that the complex opened a bright prospect of glorifying the undying exploits of the President and radically improving the people's standard of living that he declared that the success should be celebrated as "a great auspicious event of the whole country."

Noting that the vinalon industry which had been at a standstill during the "Arduous march", the forced march, was put on a new ultra-modern scientific and technological basis in a brief span of time, the report pointed out that this is the shining fruition of the inexhaustible mental power and the power of ability fully displayed by the workers of the DPRK who have grown stronger hundred times in the crucible of the Songun revolution to defend socialism under the leadership of the Party and the leader.
