The Fourth Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, held at the end of last year, discussed the agenda item of providing all the students across the country with school uniforms and school things at state expense.
Before that meeting, the Third Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the WPK held in June discussed it as a major agenda item to improve the Party’s childcare policy. The meeting adopted it as a Party policy to supply all the children across the country with nourishing foods including dairy products at state expense as their days in nursery and kindergarten are most important in their growth and development.
The DPRK pays unsparing care to children so that they can grow up in a good environment from their early days.
All the things including Pyongyang Children’s Department Store, the Okryu Children’s Hospital, school bags, notebooks and school things tell the state’s love for the future of the country.
The state investment for the rising generation totals an astronomical amount every year. This is not because this country is rich in everything or has lots of money. It still lacks in many things, and is experiencing difficulties; it is under the sanctions and blockade, the harshest-ever of their kinds in history, and the sufferings from the global health crisis and natural disasters are not minimal.
However, irrespective of whether the conditions are favourable or not, it regards the work for the rising generation as the most important of its affairs.
The more difficult the situation is, the greater care the state pays to the children, and by dint of this strength, the country advances toward the communist future; this is the mode of advance and development unique to this country.
All these are inconceivable separated from the affection for the rising generations cherished by Kim Jong Un, president of the State Affairs.
He views that the loss of the state incurred for the benefit of the rising generations is nothing and the more the state invests for them, the brighter the future of the country is.
At the Fourth Plenary Meeting of the Eighth Central Committee of the WPK Kim Jong Un, saying that it is a consistent policy of the Party and the state to provide all the students across the country with school uniforms and school things at state expense, put forward the tasks for supplying all of them with uniforms and bags of new types and high quality, and took important Party Central Committee measures for its implementation.
It is obvious that the Korean society will become more and more vibrant and vigorous and its national strength will be far more enormous after 20 or 30 years as the country is now making devoted efforts for the rising generation.
