In December Juche 107(2018), the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un inspected the Wonsan Leather Shoes Factory.
Exchanging greetings with the factory officials, he said that he was so pleased to hear the report that this factory had won the first place at the recent national shoes exhibition, and that Maebongsan-brand shoes presented by the factory had been very popular. He added that a small local factory had become well known all over the country as an iconic factory leading the shoe-making industry of the country.
Looking round the shop floors of the factory, he stressed that in order to meet the daily-increasing people’s demands, it was necessary to keep pushing forward the effort of attaining the world level in quality with an emphasis put on ensuring diverse forms, decent colours, lightness and durability while meeting the aesthetic tastes of our people.
Noting that he looked round the factory with satisfaction, he said that he had come to the factory without prior notice but saw a “bumper harvest” of shoes, and that he was very satisfied and pleased to see the production put on a normal track and cascading good-quality shoes.
Today the Wonsan Leather Shoes Factory is making strenuous efforts to produce more shoes, which people favour and seek before others, upholding the banner of self-reliance.
