Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, gave field guidance to the Kumsong Tractor Factory which successfully carried out the task for production of new-type tractors, entrusted by the Party, in the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance.
He looked round the room for education in the revolutionary history and the room dedicated to the history of the factory.
Noting that President Kim Il Sung visited the factory 34 times and leader Kim Jong Il ten times, he said that, through the figures alone, one can well know about the immortal guidance feats performed by the great leaders for the development of the Juche-based tractor industry.
Seeing with deep emotion the photos of Kim Il Sung watching the Chollima tractor made by the workers of the factory on Nov. 14, 1958 and Kim Jong Il giving important instructions for the factory’s development before the newly-made tractor Chollima-2000, he stressed it is thanks to their devoted efforts that the factory could register brilliant successes in the struggle to realize the comprehensive mechanization of agriculture over the past years.
The respected Supreme Leader examined new-type 80 h.p. tractors, Chollima-804, produced at the factory.
Watching with a bright smile in his face hundreds of blue-painted tractors standing in rows, he said with high appreciation that it is very spectacular and that the factory made a great success.
He personally rode on a tractor and drove it to learn in detail about its performance and technical specifications.
Saying that the workers of the factory who set the great era of Chollima in a ferment with the production of the first Chollima tractor are adding shine to the present era of Mallima with the production of new-type tractor Chollima-804, he stressed that the buzzing sound of the 80 h.p. tractor, a proud creation of the era of Mallima, represents the grand march of Socialist Korea.
Then he went round processing and assembling workshop, sheet metal processing workshop, casting workshop and other parts of the factory and set forth its tractor production assignment for next year as well as the task for its modernization.
Another revolution should be made in positively propelling the development of the country’s vehicle industry through a project of upgrading the Kumsong Tractor Factory, he said, showing benevolence for the renovation of the factory and promising that he would dispatch a powerful building force of the people’s army.
He had a photo session with the labor innovators of the factory.
Accompanying him were Pak Pong Ju, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK, vice-chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and premier of the Cabinet, O Su Yong, vice-chairman of the C.C., WPK, and Jo Yong Won, vice department director of the C.C., WPK.
