The 5th Plenary Meeting of the 7th Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea defined the economic front as the major one in the frontal offensive for making a breakthrough.

It is the firm determination of the Party to fortify the independent foundation of the national economy by concentrating all efforts on economic construction and build a powerful socialist country boastfully.

Economic independence means defense of the country's sovereignty and dignity. Economic dependence is bound to end up in political subordination.

The economic power we are building is a country of strong independence and Juche-character.

At present, the socialist economic construction is underway in every manner of challenge and hardship. The only way out of today’s ordeals lies in realizing the independence and Juche character of the national economy in a more thoroughgoing way. It is with a self-supporting economy alone that we can constantly build up the country's political and military power and redouble the driving force for the country's advance.

Economic independence is a major guarantee for sustainably and stably augmenting our state economy regardless of any external factors.

Only a self-sufficient economy can provide a reliable guarantee for the existence and development of the state.

We should push vigorously ahead with domestic production and recycling while actively surmounting every irrational factor revealed in the economic sector and thus provide all conditions necessary for economic growth.

The trials and difficulties facing our country's economic development are severe now, but the might of our self-supporting economy will further be strengthened as our people regard national independence and national dignity as their lifeblood and self-reliance as their mode of existence.

Economic independence is an important guarantee for fully displaying the advantages of socialism.

Promotion of people's well-being is precisely enhancement of the advantages of socialism.

Improvement of people’s living standards is directly linked with an independent economy. Only the economy depending on its own strength, technology and resources can efficiently provide people with independent and creative living conditions.

Today, our Party holds fast to the people-first principle as a fundamental core and is orienting and subordinating everything to the improvement of people’s living standards.

Our Party's determination to launch an offensive for making a breakthrough head-on is aimed to bring earlier a wealthy life to our people by increasing the independence of the national economy in every way.

The more wealth of self-reliance and self-sufficiency we create, the greater stride may be made in improving people's living standards and the fuller the advantage of socialism over capitalism be displayed.

All the officials, Party members and other working people should brilliantly carry out the cause of building a powerful socialist country by hastening the socialist economic construction under the banner of self-reliance.
