Year of Great Leadership and Patriotic Devotion
The Korean people are now looking back on 2017 with great pride.

They are brimming with immense reverence for Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un who has performed miracles in the building of a powerful socialist country by leading all domains of politics, military, economy and culture with his extraordinary political acumen and leadership traits.

Having touched the heartstrings of the Koreans as he said he was hardening his resolve to seek more tasks for the sake of the people this year and make redoubled, devoted efforts to this end in his New Year Address, he made an inspection tour of the Pyongyang Bag Factory as his first on-the-spot guidance for this year.

There he expressed his satisfaction over the fact that it became possible to make bags for our children and people in the local factory by local efforts with locally available raw and other materials. A few days later he visited the Pyongyang Kim Jong Suk Silk Mill to see a new quilt production process and hostel for workers and then the Ryugyong Kimchi Factory which was turned into the country’s model of the traditional food producers.

His visits were all directly linked with improving the livelihood of the people.

He energetically guided the construction of Ryomyong Street, a project which demonstrated the invincible might of socialist Korea.

He inspected the construction site twice respectively in January and March, specifying tasks in detail.

While climbing up a more than 200-metre-high apartment building yet to be completed, he acquainted himself with the construction, paying close attention to dwellers’ convenience in living and stimulating the enthusiasm of builders a thousand-fold.

Under the guidance of the Supreme Leader, who knows no satisfaction in the work for the people, creations of civilization came into being one after another on this land.

He had a photograph taken with pupils at newly built Pyongyang Primary School for Orphans and continued his inspection trips to lots of industrial establishments such as the Pyongyang Mushroom Farm, Rangnang Disabled Soldiers’ Essential Plastic Goods Factory, Kangso Mineral Water Factory, Pyongyang Dental Hygiene Supplies Factory, Ryuwon Footwear Factory and Pyongyang Cosmetics Factory.

This is by no means an ordinary year.

The Korean people have been compelled to carry on the revolution and construction in the face of trying ordeals due to the vicious anti-DPRK sanctions and pressure by the US.

The foremost standard in the thinking and activities of the leader has been the interests and wellbeing of his people and his most important state affair has been the defence buildup to protect their destiny.

His energetic guidance for the building of an invincible military power brought about a signal victory in the “March 18 revolution”, the successful static firing test of a new-type high-thrust motor and a leap forward in the development of the rocket industry, and gave birth to powerful Juche weapons in succession.

He always stayed on with defence scientists and technicians even during testing, assembly and launch of weapon systems, providing guidance over the whole processes of their development.

Also etched in the annals of the country’s history is the “July 4 revolution”, the successful test-fire of intercontinental ballistic missile Hwasong 14.

The subsequent successes in ICBM test-fires were the victory of the nerve and grit of the leader who strove to consummate the cause of military buildup without a step of retreat in the face of ferocious challenges of the US and its lackeys and manifold difficulties.

As he kindled the flames of military buildup this year of the 85th anniversary of the Korean People’s Army, Kim Jong Un who is also the KPA Supreme Commander visited army units uninterruptedly from large combined units to islet-defending units to oversee tactical drills, military training and competitions of services and arms, thus boosting the might of the KPA.

His field guidance also covered cereals farming, animal husbandry, fishing and fruit farming.

His every inspection tour was followed by the people’s joy and happiness.

Kwail County of South Hwanghae Province produced a bumper crop of fruit and many cooperative farms gathered good crops of cereals, while fish caught in the sea steadily flowed to remote mountain villages.

As they recollect the year when miracles of history have been wrought and a new age of great change has been ushered in, the Korean people keenly realize once again the greatness of their leader and harden their conviction that victory and prosperity are in store for them as they are led by him.

The rate of advance of the DPRK, which makes leaps forward nonstop despite all manner of difficulties, is that of the forced march the Supreme Leader makes to bring a rosy future to the country and people.

He still continues his inspection tour on these closing days of the year, inspiring all the people to greater victories.
