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, inspected the Myohyangsan Medical Appliances Factory under reconstruction.
The Supreme Leader looked round the factory to learn in detail about its reconstruction and renovation.
Feasting his eyes on the overall view of the factory, he said that its interior and exterior now befit a model factory in the medical sector and it is flawless both in terms of architectural beauty and technology. He said with pleasure that the factory has undergone a facelift and its look changed beyond recognition.
He appreciated that the factory has been built into a high-tech factory capable of mass-producing different kinds of highly efficient medical appliances badly needed at hospitals.
Putting into operation the trial medical apparatuses produced by the factory, he learned in detail about their performance.
Stressing that it is important to produce lots of medical apparatuses vital for protecting and promoting the people's life but they have to be of high quality, above all, he said in earnest tone that it is precisely an issue related to the outlook on the people.
Calling for putting all the medical appliances to be produced by the factory on the level of those produced by the developed countries, he said the factory should look for data on modern medical appliances, steadily update designs and products in an innovative way to suit to the situation of hospitals in the country and the constitution of patients and thus develop and produce quality medical appliances of high performance and practicability.
Noting that the modernization project of the factory is being done as planned by the Party in general but there are some drawbacks when seen in detail, he pointed to the insufficient quality of construction that comes short of the needs of designs and engineering.
The exterior wall tiles and seams of some buildings are not smooth and some parts have uneven plastering, he pointed out, criticizing that the final works have not been done in a delicate manner.
He said that he would send a unit with high construction skills without delay and the factory should set right the drawbacks revealed in construction and complete it into an impeccable and functional one by the end of this year.
He was accompanied by Kim Yo Jong, Jo Yong Won, Ri Jong Nam, Hong Yong Song, Hyon Song Wol and Jang Song Ho, leading officials of the WPK Central Committee, Kang Pong Hun, chairman of the Jagang Provincial Committee of the WPK, and Ma Won Chun, director of a bureau of the State Affairs Commission.
