Genuine features of DPRK

Genuine country for the people

By Kang Chol Ho

The true features of the DPRK are that it is a country in which the people-first principle is fully embodied.

This principle embodies the Juche-oriented revolutionary philosophy that the people are the most precious and powerful beings in the world and reflects the unwavering commitment of the DPRK government to love the people dearly and satisfy their demands and interests.

With a view to carrying forward and holding up the ennobling ideas and intentions of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il, who believed in the people as in heaven and devoted their lives to their interests, the Party defined the essence of Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism, the guiding ideology of the revolution, as the people-first principle and set it as the greatest priority to apply the Juche-oriented view on the people in the activities of the Party and the state.

The Workers' Party of Korea gives top and absolute priority to people's interests in all fields of state and social life and unsparingly directs everything to the promotion of the people's well-being.

The slogan "Everything for the people and everything by relying on them!" encapsulates the people-first principle maintained by the WPK and the DPRK government.

In recent years the state has implemented gigantic construction projects in a bold manner. This is not because there is a surplus of funds in the country's coffers, but because those projects are aimed at providing the people, who are the best in the world, with better conditions for a happy, cultured life.

As the Party and state activities are thoroughly directed towards the good of the masses of the people, the people do everything without condition and devotedly implement the Party's policies on the top level when the Party is determined.

The Party and the state make selfless, devoted efforts for the good of the people, and the latter support the former whole-heartedly, entrusting their destiny and future entirely to it--these are the genuine features of the DPRK that can be found nowhere else.
