For Development of Regional Economy
  Foodstuff factory and other modern regional industry factories and many dwelling houses have been built in Kimhwa County of Kangwon Province, bringing about fundamental changes in the people's living.

  Some years ago, the county had difficult living conditions and poor economic foundation.
  To crown all, it suffered a huge damage by disastrous downpour in August Juche 109(2020).
  The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un learned in detail about the damage in Kimhwa County caused by disastrous downpour and flood and dispatched powerful construction force to the county.
  And he gave a specific task to renovate the affected area in conformity with the demand and desire of the people.
  On October 1 when the construction for damage rehabilitation was in progress, he visited Kimhwa County and stressed the need to develop the regional industry, an important foundation for its economy, and thus improve the material life of the local people.
  At the Second Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea held some months after that in February Juche 110(2021), he underscored the need to remodel the regional industry factories in the county.
  And he gave energetic guidance to all the problems arising in the construction of those factories ranging from the issue of confirming production indices according to the regional characteristics of the county to the design of processes, the scale of production and the normal operation of the factories after their inauguration.
  Thanks to him, Kimhwa County, once a poor mountain county, was face-lifted in a short span of time.
  Kimhwa County is now revitalizing the production of the regional industry factories with its own raw and other materials.
  At the 10th Session of the 14th Supreme People's Assembly of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, Kim Jong Un highly appreciated the successes achieved by Kimhwa County and said:
  If the cities and counties are determined to push ahead with the construction of regional industry factories and the establishment of raw materials production bases at the same time like Kimhwa County, they can improve their regional economy as much as they want.
  I am going to make our Party keep hold on the construction of modern regional industry factories in 20 counties every year as an unerring policy task, carry it out successfully and thus raise on one stage the basic material and cultural living standards of the people in all cities and counties and, in another word, across the country within ten years.
  It represents his deep intention to regard the improvement of the people's living as an important state policy and bring about a fundamental change in the people's livelihood.
