Our Own Things Should Be Developed

In June Juche 107(2018), Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un visited the Sinuiju Cosmetics Factory.

Exchanging greetings with the factory officials, he said that he had longed to visit the factory renowned for its Pomhyanggi-brand cosmetics, but came only that day.

I have found time to come here on receiving the report that the factory has recently made a good achievement in production, he noted.

Then he continued: In recent years I have stressed the need to improve the quality of cosmetics and boost their production; the cosmetics industry should regard it as its primary task to develop cosmetics by relying on our technology and raw materials and intensify research work to this end, thus developing new products competitively; in this way, each factory should sustain the characteristics of cosmetics it has developed.

Noting that the demands for cosmetics are different according to region, as well as age and gender of the people, he stressed that the Sinuiju Cosmetics Factory should produce good basic cosmetics that suit the people’s hobby by age and gender, and that it should build up what was weak and continue to develop what was good by comparing its products with those produced at home and abroad.

Saying that a product is appraised not only by its quality but by its famousness, he emphasized that such appraisal by the people is a reflection of their general psychology, and that if the factory improves the quality of its products, packages them in a diversified way and advertises them in an efficient way the people would prefer them to foreign cosmetics.

Noting that we should make sure that the people reject worship of things of others and feel attachment to the things of our own making, he stressed that we should, however, not merely say our things are best but criticize those that are not good, and only then can we develop our own things.

The Sinuiju Cosmetics Factory, improving the quality of its products and increasing their kinds in conformity with the preferences, ages and physical constitutions of the people, is playing a leading role in opening up a new golden age of the cosmetics industry of the country.
