Hold aloft Banner of Self-reliance

Torch of self-reliance

Leading newspapers here in their editorials on Saturday call for successfully carrying out the new five-year plan under the uplifted banner of self-reliance.

Rodong Sinmun says that the 8th Congress of the Party laid great emphasis on winning a fresh victory in the socialist construction, holding fast to self-reliance.

It goes on:

It is the fundamental guarantee for successfully implementing the new five-year plan for the national economic development to hold higher the banner of self-reliance.

The general orientation of the five-year plan for the national economic development is to lay solid foundations for reenergizing the overall national economy and improving the people's standard of living by concentrating efforts on the main links in the whole chain of economic development.

Self-reliance is by no means a temporary countermeasure for overcoming trials and difficulties but the immutable path of our revolution.

Our people neither hesitate nor expect other's help though the situation is unfavorable and they are faced with huge struggle tasks.

The whole history of our socialist construction is the proud history in which we have made epoch-making changes, making a breakthrough head-on to tide over every trial and difficulty by relying on our own efforts only.

Our people have waged an indomitable offensive struggle for turning all obstacles into great victory for the past five years and the era of our state-first principle, the one of new development, has been ushered in the course.

Saying that the main seed and theme of the new five-year plan for the national economic development are, as always, self-reliance and self-sufficiency, Minju Joson stresses that self-reliance should develop into nationwide, planned and scientific one during the period of the new long-term plan.
