Pyongyang, May 7 (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 February 11 Plant of the Ryongsong Machine Complex.

He looked round the newly remodeled room dedicated to the education in the revolutionary history.

He said that the history of the development of the plant represents the history of the guidance given by President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il.

He underscored the need for the plant to start full-scale serial production of modern machines as early as possible by waging a dynamic drive for bringing their performance to the world's level and thus glorify the leadership exploits of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.

He looked round various places of the plant including the processing and assembling shops to learn in detail about the production.

It is something to be proud of that the plant has updated all production processes including boring and milling machines, turning lathes and vertical heat treatment oven by widely applying advanced technology, thereby raising the performance of the existing equipment and their production efficiency and precision rate of machine parts processing, he noted.

The plant is a model to be followed by the whole country in updating aging equipment and making an effective use of them, he said, calling upon other units to earnestly learn from its experience.

Noting that the plant has made a lot of achievements in the drive to contrive and manufacture latest machines, he repeatedly expressed satisfaction, saying: New type modern machines produced by the plant look very nice. This alone proves that the machine-building industry of the country has made a great leap forward in recent years.

Different sectors are now requiring more modern machines, he said, instructing the plant to meticulously organize the production to unfailingly carry out its national economic plan and, at the same time, work hard to perfectly conclude the work for developing new products at the earliest possible date.

He enjoyed an art performance given by the itinerant art squad of the plant.

Its performance represents a dynamic political work, he said, adding that every number of its repertoire correctly reflected the party's policies and it was pervaded with the love for the plant and truthfully depicted the revolutionary and militant character of its workers.

He said that while going round the plant, he could learn well about the loyalty of its workers who trusted and followed the party and the leaders only in good or bad days. He expressed conviction that the party would as always remain strong and emerge victorious thanks to such workers as those of the plant.

He had a photo session with the labor innovators, expressing belief that the workers of the plant would make a positive contribution to developing the nation's machine-building industry.
