Rodong Sinmun on Self-Support in Economy
Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in an article says that in order to defend the sovereignty of a state and promote its sustained development, it is necessary to have its own solid economic foundation and assets.
Without self-support in the economy, is it impossible to realize independence in politics and defend the right to existence and development of each country and nation, the article says, and goes on:
Self-support in the economy is a material guarantee for reliably maintaining the political independence of a state.
Holding fast to the banner of self-support, the Korean people realized in a matter of 14 years the industrialization, which others took one century or even a few centuries to do, and built a socialist state, independent in politics, self-support in the economy and self-reliant in national defence, on this land which had been backward for centuries.
The proud reality of the DPRK fully displaying its dignity and honor while proudly exercising its sovereignty goes to prove that self-support in the economy is a sure guarantee for ensuring the political independence.
The independent economy is a basic cornerstone for developing the state in a sustained and stable way irrespective of any external factors.
The economy can be powerful only when it does not depend on other countries in any environment.
The economic development based on other's things and help may bring about temporary growth or splendid change, but it is hard to expect the sustained and planned development from it.
The independent economy is an economy for the future, whereas the dependent economy is a hand-to-mouth economy.
In order to achieve national prosperity, it is important to build the economy in anticipation of several generations at least. Such gigantic work for the future of each nation can not be carried out in reliance on other's help.
Only when each nation relies on its own strength, technology and resources, is it possible to develop all sectors of its economic construction steadily in a planned way in conformity with the aspirations and demands of its people and the actual conditions of its country.
Just as the Juche idea is our lifeblood, the independent national economy is our eternal life.
