Pyongyang, March 7 (KCNA) -- The vigorous 70-day campaign now goes on in the DPRK with the 7th Congress of the Workers' Party of Korea approaching.

TV and other media of the country have focused on the signal achievements made one after another in various economic sectors.

It is a peculiar and traditional spirit of the Korean army and people to work admirable miracles in response to the calls made by the Party and the government to bring a great upsurge in the revolution and construction at every historic turning point.

The first 70-day campaign was conducted in the early 1970s, rousing all the servicepersons and civilians to the performance of fresh miracles and feats in production and construction. The campaign resulted in a solid foundation for smoothly hitting the high targets of the Six-Year Plan of national economy set at the 5th Congress of the WPK.

Early in the 1980s, a 100-day campaign was launched to greet the 6th Congress of the WPK with greater achievements. The campaign made a breakthrough in the efforts to carry out the Second Seven-Year Plan ahead of schedule, displaying the revolutionary zeal and heroic stamina of all the DPRK people.

A 200-day campaign was witnessed late in the 1980s with the 40th anniversary of the DPRK as an occasion, and it was followed by another 200-day campaign that provided a guarantee for the smooth implementation of the Third Seven-Year Plan.

The year 2005 saw another 100-day campaign conducted to glorify the 60th anniversary of the WPK as a grand festival of victors.

In 2009 there was a 150-day campaign that opened up a bright prospect for glorifying the year as one of a great turn to be specially recorded in the history of building a thriving nation, then followed by another 100-day campaign intended to lay a springboard for entering the gate of a thriving nation in 2012.

Through the ongoing 70-day campaign, the DPRK people will make signal achievements in production and construction by dint of the spirit of self-reliance and self-development and thus greet the 7th WPK Congress significantly. -0-
