Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, gave field guidance to the construction site of the Onchon tourist area in Yangdok County, South Phyongan Province.

Supreme Leader of the Party, state and army Kim Jong Un noted that people would be pleased to play ski in the day time and take a rest while taking baths in hot-spring in the evening by building a ski resort around the Onchon tourist area under construction in Yangdok County. And he repeatedly learned about the winter climate condition and geographical features of the area and gave the relevant field the detailed tasks and ways for building a ski resort.

He walked round every nook and corner of the construction site after learning about the construction project while watching the newly made master plan for the Yangdok Onchon tourist area.

Expressing great satisfaction with the fact that a bright outlook of the project is seen as the ground excavation and concrete tamping and substructure project of all the construction objects such as recuperation district, rest district, general service district and hotel district charged by the KPA have been made as scheduled, he highly praised the soldier-builders in high spirits.

Making a field survey of the construction sites today once again, he said that Yangdok area has a favorable natural and geographical condition for building a ski resort as it has high mountains and has much snow along with low temperature in winter. Noting that the yield of hot-spring water has not changed and its temperature is very high in the area under construction, he was much pleased that the general sporting and cultural rest center and the health treatment service center for hot-spring bath and skiing will be built in the nameless and quiet mountainous area.

He said that the construction speed should be hastened and the operation unit should make meticulous service preparations one by one from now so as to operate the hot-spring ground and ski resort from winter this year. He pointed out that deep studies and good management strategy should be made for perfect operation and service of the Yangdok Ski Resort in a higher level on the basis of experience gained in operating the Masikryong Ski Resort.

He noted that the soldiers of the People’s Army who always reply “Yes” to the Party’s call come across his mind before anyone when the Party is determined to carry out such large construction demanding high technical and quality level as the construction of the Wonsan-Kalma coastal tourist area and Yangdok Onchon tourist area. He said the People’s Army should fully demonstrate the might as creator of people’s happiness and pioneer of high civilization by devotedly implementing the Party’s plan and determination.

He was accompanied by Choe Ryong Hae, vice-chairman of the Central Committee of the WPK, and Jo Yong Won and Pak Chang Ho, vice department directors of the C.C., WPK.
