Pyongyang, May 14 (KCNA) -- The dear respected Kim Jong Un, in his speech at the military parade marking President Kim Il Sung's 100th birth anniversary, stressed that by making the flames of the industrial revolution in the new century and the flames of Hamnam flare up more fiercely, the Korean people should take the road of building an economic power in a comprehensive way.

His remarks reminded the people of President Kim Il Sung, who appealed to the people to contribute to building new Korea, those with strength devoting their strength, those with knowledge giving their knowledge and those with money donating their money, after the liberation of the country from the Japanese colonial rule.

Kim Jong Un called on the people to cultivate with care the valuable seeds, which General Secretary Kim Jong Il sowed for the building of an economic power and the improvement of the people's standard of living, and bring them to brilliant fruition. He underlined that single-minded unity and invincible military might plus the industrial revolution in the new century is just the thriving socialist country.

Kim Jong Il turned the DPRK into a politico-ideological power as well as a military power and kindled the flames of industrial revolution in the new century in an aim to make a fresh turn in the economy.

Driven by the flames, the Huichon Ryonha General Machine Factory in Jagang Province updated itself as a standard one in the 21st century. The factory made a combined machining centre, a parent machine for processing the main body of CNC machine tools, thereby implementing Kim Jong Il's lifetime instructions.

All the fields of the nation's economy have been transformed to meet the requirements of knowledge-based economy.

The nation's self-supporting economy now serves as solid foundations for building a thriving nation.

Kim Jong Un also called upon the people to build an economic power in a comprehensive way and thus ensure that our people do not have to tighten their belts again, but enjoy all the benefits of socialism.

In response to his call, the Korean people are now pressing ahead with the building of a thriving nation, a way to realize the socialist ideal.
