One day in August Juche 105 (2016), Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un visited the Sunchon Chemical Complex to look round a newly-built process of producing acrylic paints.
He expressed great satisfaction over the fact that the workers of the complex established the process in Korean style and designed and manufactured all the equipment and facilities by themselves.
It was another brilliant achievement made in the field of chemical industry that they built and operated the process on the basis of their indigenous technologies, raw materials and equipment.
Noting that he witnessed a wonderful thing, he said he was deeply moved to see the new process in the complex because he not only saw Korean-style acrylic paints but keenly felt that the chemical industry of the country could be put on a Juche-oriented and modern basis on a higher level by dint of its own efforts, technologies and raw materials.
Today there is nothing but our own efforts for us to rely on and nobody is willing to help us, he said, and went on: If one believes in oneself, then thousands of miles will look to be an inch and, if not, even an inch will look to be thousands of miles. Only when we display the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance can we make the greatest achievement even under the worst conditions and the Korean revolution advance vigorously.
