The Sunchon Phosphatic Fertilizer Factory has been built as a creation of struggle to achieve prosperity by dint of self-reliance in the general march of all people for opening a new avenue of socialist construction true to the ambitious blueprint of the Workers’ Party of Korea while braving severe hardships facing the revolution.
Demonstrating the invariable belief of the WPK and the Korean people that the more the hostile forces become hell-bent on bringing the wind of tribulations, the more fiercely the red flag will flutter, a new chemical industry base was completed as the first victory out of all the fronts of building a powerful socialist country this year in which the great idea on launching a frontal offensive to achieve a breakthrough was advanced.
An inaugural ceremony of the factory, a production base of Juche fertilizer, was held splendidly on May Day, the international holiday of working people around the world.
Kim Jong Un, Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and Supreme Commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, attended the ceremony.
The factory, a proud creation in the great era of the Workers’ Party and another eternal asset for the building of a thriving country, is a model and standard one in the sector of chemical industry as it fully meets the requirement of Juche orientation and modernization and it is perfect in the aspects of production, architecture and protection of ecological environment.
With the building of the Juche-oriented phosphatic fertilizer industry relying on our own efforts, technology and locally-available materials under the wise leadership of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, a breakthrough was made for the country to add lustre to the immortal exploits performed by the great leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il for a solid foundation of the self-supporting socialist economy during their lifetime and drastically increase grain production.
Its completion, the first victory in the frontal offensive to achieve a breakthrough for implementing the decisions made at the historic Fifth Plenary Meeting of the Seventh WPK Central Committee, greatly inspires the Korean people with confidence in victory that they can exalt the dignity and majesty of a powerful state when they strictly follow the idea and leadership of the Party Central Committee and give full play to the might of self-reliance.
Amid a welcome music, Kim Jong Un came out to the venue of the ceremony.
All the participants broke into thunderous cheers of “hurrah!” extending the greatest glory to the Supreme Leader who has brought about a new change in the development of Juche-oriented fertilizer industry and has led the grand revolutionary advance for building up the self-supporting economy to a victory with his outstanding leadership.

He said that the Supreme Leader set forth a militant task to build a modern, gigantic factory which mass-produces high-concentration ammonium phosphatic fertilizer badly needed for agricultural production, and gave energetic guidance to build it as an icon factory in the sector of chemical industry which fully meets the requirement of Juche orientation and modernization and a labour-saving enterprise all the processes of which are put on an automated and streamlined basis.
He said the builders, scientists and soldier-builders, who are armed with the spirit of devotedly implementing the Party policies as their nature, made devoted efforts to accelerate the date of its completion, waging a fierce charge and 24-7 struggle of loyalty to finish the huge project ahead of schedule and solving many scientific and technological problems arising in putting the phosphatic fertilizer industry on a Juche-oriented basis.
The completion of the factory which would drastically develop the fertilizer industry of the country and propel the economic front as a whole is the great victory of the Party’s idea on launching the frontal offensive for a breakthrough and achieving prosperity by dint of self-reliance, and this proves once again the truth that we can certainly attain the fighting goals when we dynamically advance under the uplifted banner of self-reliance under the guidance of the Party, he noted.
He called for getting rallied close behind the Supreme Leader, further boosting the enthusiasm of launching the frontal offensive for a breakthrough to ceaselessly register admirable achievements of self-reliance and making vigorous advance, full of faith in sure victory for the prosperity of the socialist country.

All the participants burst into thunderous cheers of “hurrah!” again for the Supreme Leader who is leading the all-people general march to accomplish the great cause of prosperity by dint of self-reliance and demonstrating the might and dignity of socialist Korea on the highest level.
The Supreme Leader warmly waved back to the builders and other participants in the ceremony.
Being briefed on the production lines of the factory, he looked round several places for raw material processing, yellow phosphorus production, ammonium phosphatic fertilizer production and packing.
Feasting his eyes on the general view of the factory, he said with deep emotion that the great leaders Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il, who worked heart and soul to solve the food problem for the people, would be greatly pleased if they heard the news that a modern phosphatic fertilizer factory has been built.
Now that it has become possible for the agricultural workers to concentrate all their efforts on attaining the grain goal set forth by the Party with assurances, he said, adding that the factory is a proud fruition created by those who absolutely follow the Party policy by displaying the might of army-people unity. He spoke highly of the feats performed by all the builders, scientists and technicians.
Expressing satisfaction at the fact that teachers and researchers of Kim Chaek University of Technology, in cooperation with relevant units, established a wonderful integrated production system in the factory, he repeatedly stressed that talents are the great source of the country and motive force for its development and that the training of talents is the policy issue to which the Party has attached most priority.
The completion of the factory is the first achievement made after the 5th Plenary Meeting of the 7th WPK Central Committee and an important occasion in making the chemical industry of the country leap forward, he said, calling for more fiercely raising the flame of achieving prosperity by dint of self-reliance in all fields of building a powerful country with this valuable success as the initial spark.
He specified tasks for the management and operation of the factory, including the issue of taking thoroughgoing measures for the provision of raw materials to put phosphorus fertilizer production on a normal footing, the issue of further rounding off the integrated production system and putting production lines under stable operation and the issue of paying special attention to environmental protection.
He set forth tasks and ways for developing chemical industry in a correct direction as required by the new century, including rebuilding and updating fertilizer factories as a whole and building more chemical industrial bases.
He expressed his expectation and conviction that officials, scientists, technicians and builders would wage a courageous offensive for opening a new avenue of socialist construction in the same spirit and stamina with which they created the new industry relying on our locally-available raw materials and indigenous technology and thus further demonstrate the might of the Party’s great idea on launching the frontal offensive for a breakthrough.
All the participants in the significant, grand inaugural ceremony in the presence of the Supreme Leader were full of enthusiasm to further glorify this year marking the 75th founding anniversary of the glorious Party with proud achievements and ceaselessly win new victories in the building of a powerful socialist country by displaying the indefatigable fighting spirit and working style of self-reliance, true to the leadership and ideology of the Party.
