In June Juche 107(2018), the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un visited the Sinuiju Textile Mill.
The textile mill, which began operation in September 1959, has a long history and tradition in producing cloth necessary for the people’s living.
The major goal in renovating the mill as suited to the new century is to turn it into a labour-saving enterprise, he said, adding that we should develop light industry so as to ensure that our people enjoy a happy and abundant material and cultural life to their heart’s content.
He stressed that we should raise to a higher level the artificial fibre industry based on reed, saying improving this industry was of great significance in developing our light industry into a self-supporting and Juche-oriented industry.
He personally selected a site for the dormitory of the workers of the mill, and took measures for mobilizing competent construction forces.
