Kangwondo Spirit
  The course of the development of the Korean revolution recorded the spirits of the times that brought about unprecedented changes and miracles including the Kangwondo spirit.
  Kangwon Province is in the southern part of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
  As it is mostly covered with mountains, the province has poor economic foundation and unfavourable natural and climatic conditions.
  But the people in the province have promoted the regional development, attaining self-sufficiency in everything needed with self-reliance and untiring patience. In the course, they created the Kangwondo spirit, a new spirit of the times.
 


  The respected Comrade Kim Jong Un visited the Wonsan Army-People Power Station in December Juche 105(2016). He said the officials, Party members and working people in Kangwon Province are the indomitable fighters who proved in practice the great vitality of the self-development-first principle, and called them creators of the Kangwondo spirit.
  The Kangwondo spirit is the loyal mind to realize without fail the patriotic desire of the great leader Kim Jong Il for making the country powerful.
  Its essence is self-reliance and self-sufficiency. In other words, the core of the Kangwondo spirit is the standpoint that one should carve out one's way to live by one's own efforts.
  The people in Kangwon Province solved all problems by relying on their own strength and technology and local resources.
  They worked harder in the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance and the spirit of continued innovation to win a greater victory by making a continuous offensive without resting content with the achievements.





  As a result, Kangwon Province which was once behind other provinces is now recognized as the one prospering with self-reliance and as the standard-bearer in the building of a powerful socialist country.
