It is an unchangeable resolve and will of the Workers’ Party of Korea to lay a solid foundation of a powerful socialist nation with the might of science and technology and accelerate the building of a prospering country with science and technology as the engine.
Korean scientists and technicians have made lots of excellent scientific and technological achievements in 2017 as well with a firm will to implement the resolve of the party.
Sung Kyong Chol, Department Director of the State Commission of Science and Technology, says:
“The respected supreme leader Kim Jong Un said the might of self-reliance and self-development is precisely that of science and technology and a shortcut to the fulfilment of the 5-year strategy lies in attaching importance and giving priority to science and technology.
Keeping his instructions deep in our hearts we have held higher the line of putting the national economy on a Juche-oriented basis and the slogan of self-reliance.
We have concentrated efforts on solving scientific and technological issues of epochal significance in developing the economy of the country into an independent economy relying on our strength, our technology and our resources and scrupulously organized operations and guidance for the development of science and technology of the country.
In this way we have oriented all work to thoroughly implementing the Party’s economic policy by giving definite precedence to science and technology and mobilizing the strength and wisdom of our technology developers and producer masses not only in the field of science and technology but also in all fields and units of the national economy.”
The scientists and technicians of the State Academy of Sciences have dynamically scaled the heights of latest science and technology in the spirit of resolute implementation, in the spirit of self-reliance and self-development and in the indomitable offensive spirit. They went out to major industrial establishments including the Samchon Catfish Farm, the Kumsong Tractor Factory and the Kumsanpho Fish Pickling Factory and, pooling creative wisdom and enthusiasm with the technicians there, made valuable research findings for putting the national economy on a Juche-oriented basis. With a confident ambition to go ahead of the world they have forcefully promoted researches to solve issues that remained unsolved in basic sciences, presenting a number of excellent results in researches including the study of laser oscillation in the metal nano structure.
Especially the scientists and technicians of the academy have directed efforts to the field of latest science including information technology and nano technology, making great successes.
A greater progress has been made in the technical preparations for establishing the C 1 chemical industry.
Multiple and successive achievements have been made in scientific researches in the agricultural, medical and different other scientific research institutions.
The agricultural researchers have achieved successes in the researches for breeding high-yield varieties of crops and for developing new botanical agrochemicals.
Medical scientists have developed an injection for prevention and treatment of thrombus and established new treatment methods for cancer immunotherapy and treatment of nervous diseases and made other valuable successes in researches.
While importance is attached to science and technology throughout the country, national sci-tech presentations and exhibitions of different sections drew public attention.
Introduced there were many excellent scientific research findings and experiences made by teachers, researchers and students in the educational and scientific institutions including Kim Il Sung University and Kim Chaek University of Technology and by scientists, technicians and working people in different fields of the national economy including light industry and metal industry.
The sci-tech presentations and exhibitions powerfully demonstrated the validity and vitality of the line of the WPK on attaching importance to science and technology and the policy on making all people well versed in science and technology and the successes and experiences have been actively introduced to different fields of the national economy.
The proud scientific research successes made in 2017 clearly prove that the resolve and will of the WPK to lay a solid foundation of a powerful socialist nation with the might of science and technology and accelerate the building of a prospering nation with science and technology as the engine will be put into practice.
