Pyongyang, January 31 (KCNA) -- Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea, first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People's Army, provided field guidance to the Wonsan Shoes Factory.

He was greeted by officials of the factory and the relevant field which took part in the remodeling project.

He enjoyed a bird's-eye view of the factory. He expressed great satisfaction, saying its appearance has changed beyond recognition and it is very nice to see the remodeled production buildings and clean environment around them. Its mere appearance makes visitors pleasant, he added.

To update the existing factories is an important work to realize the desire of President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il who were always considerate of improving the working conditions and living environment of the workers, he said, adding this was the way of fulfilling the sense of moral obligation towards them.

He looked round the monument to the revolutionary activities of the peerless great persons of Mt. Paektu erected in the compound of the factory and the newly built room dedicated to its history.

He praised the factory for successfully building the room in such an instructive manner as to vividly show what course of development it had covered under the leadership of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il and what successes and experience it has gained in that course.

He instructed the factory to effectively conduct the education through its history as well as five-point education so that its workers may work well with high pride and honor, bearing deep in mind leadership exploits performed by the party and leaders for the development of their work sites.

Going round the production processes including the injection-molding work-team, uppers shop and shoe-making shop and cultural and welfare facilities, he learned in detail about its remodeling and management activities.

Personally weighing shoes, he highly appreciated the factory for making progress in implementing the party's policy on making shoes light.

He said that the cultural and welfare establishments, outdoor sports facilities and resting places have been built well and the room for disseminating scientific and technological knowledge has been successfully built to enable the employees of the factory to complete the college course through tele-education.

He underscored the need to wage a dynamic drive for mass-producing quality and fashionable shoes at the factory as it has been turned into a model and standard of the nation's shoes factories.

He instructed the factory to make its products with trademark 'Maebongsan' popular by making steady efforts with main emphasis on improving their quality.

Commanding a bird's-eye view of the newly remodeled factory again, he said that it is the factory to be proud of and it is the best one impeccable in all aspects. He noted with pleasure that its employees have every reason to call their factory palace of workers.

He said that the remodeling of the factory is not simply aimed at updating this factory but face-lifting all light industrial factories across the country like the Wonsan Shoes Factory.

He asked officials to convey his salute to the officials and builders of the construction company managed by Kim Chang Ryong who devotedly completed the huge remodeling project on the highest level as required by the party. He promised to spare time to have a photo session with them.

He had a photo taken with the employees of the factory.

He was accompanied by Han Kwang Sang, department director of the Central Committee of the WPK.
