Basic core in the modernization
On June 15, Juche105 (2016), the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un visited Pyongyang Cornstarch Factory though it was raining.
He praised high the working class of this factory for having finished its modernization within a short period of less than one year and made a round of the several places including the product sample room and cake shop. By doing so, he expressed his satisfaction over the high ratio of localization for the modernization.
He told that what he expressed his satisfaction over while making a round of Pyongyang Cornstarch Factory was that the technicians of this factory had held aloft the banner in the struggle to enhance the ratio of localization by making and installing the equipment by their own and that Pyongyang Cornstarch Factory was, in a word, the model, standard one whose ratio of localization, basic core in the modernization, was more than 95%.
Looking up at the respected General Secretary who smiled brightly as if all kinds of his cares had been removed, the officials dwelt on his teaching that the basic core in modernizing factories was the full realization of localization while giving on the spot guidance to Pyongyang Children’s Foodstuff Factory one year ago.
If he had not taught them the valuable philosophical principle of our styled modernization and led them at every step, they could not have made a great success like that in the modernization.
Indeed, his instructions became the basic core in the modernization contained the valuable truth that any country and nation not armed with its own things would become a tributary to a power and a slave of the omnipotence of technique forever.
On that day, the officials made sure again that self-reliance based on modern science and technology was the only way out and confirmed their firm determination to produce more quality foodstuff under the banner of our styled modernization as intended by the respected General Secretary.
