The first leg of his guidance was the Chilsong Electric Appliances Factory put on modern lines.

Going round the pipe shop and other places of the factory, he acquainted himself in detail with the technological updating and production there.

Greatly satisfied to learn that the officials, workers and technicians of the factory have put the production processes on a modern and scientific basis by their own efforts and with their own technology and rapidly improved the quality of electric appliances through a widespread technical innovation movement, he highly appreciated their feats.

Noting that the factory has an important role to play in the nation's economic development, he set forth important tasks to be fulfilled by it.

The next leg of his guidance was the Huichon Ceramic Factory.

After being briefed on the production there, he went round the fire brick production process built by the factory itself to learn about the research and development.

He highly estimated the successes made by the officials, technicians and workers of the factory, expressing great satisfaction over the fact that they have established a fire brick production system depending on locally available raw materials by displaying extraordinary creative ingenuity.

The production bases built by us with much effort are substantially contributing to the economic development and the improvement of the people's stand of living, he said, adding that the WPK's plan for bringing about a decisive turn in improving the people's standard of living is sure to be successfully materialized as there is the powerful independent economic foundation equipped with the latest technology.

The third leg of his guidance was the Huichon General Machine-Tool Plant where all its production processes have been successfully put on a CNC basis of Korean style.

He made the rounds of the new casting shop and the newly manufactured machine tools to acquaint himself in detail with its construction and production.

The workers of the plant have put the machine-building industry on the world's level by dint of their persevering will as befitting the creators of the Kanggye spirit, he said, adding it is another shining victory won in the era of Songun that the DPRK firmly holds supremacy in CNC technology.
