Reason for Preparation of Banquet for Workers
In April 2014 Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un visited the newly built dormitory of the Pyongyang Kim Jong Suk Textile Mill. Mentioning that workers of the factory were provided with a fine home, he told the accompanying officials to look round the dormitory together with him and stepped into Block No. 1.
When he was looking round Dining Hall No. 2, an official of the dormitory told him that the place had two halls capable of seating 600 and 200 respectively so that 800 people could have meals at the same time. Then the Supreme Leader said that the dining halls were really wonderful, that they were better than a banquet hall or wedding hall, that a banquet could be given there, and that a large banquet should be given there on the occasion of the coming May Day. He added that the factory might have workers whose birthday was May 1, and that all of them should be invited to the banquet so that they would celebrate their birthday.
After a while, he reiterated that a grand banquet for workers should be given there on May Day in such a way as to make the whole country become enlivened, and said that he would arrange the banquet himself.
When a senior manager of the factory thanked him, the Supreme Leader warmly said that they should further increase the production of cloth thinking of President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il who had always worked hard to provide the people with quality fabrics.
This is how the banquet for the workers took place to celebrate May Day.
