Industry Innovation / '산업 혁신상'

Myeon Bang is awarded for laying new production and
technical foundations.

Today, the North Korean labour force in garment production is considered highly skilled and are available in large quantities at low costs. That, coupled with its abundant pool of large and experienced textile factories, have attracted foreign companies to use it as a production base 12. The certificate reflects this achievement.

The present day success of the textile industry follows decades of intensive work and research that began due to the success of vinalon production in Hamhung, which kickstarted its growth into a model socialist industrial city. When vinalon production became a success, the vinalon chemists’ proposal to locate North Korean chemists in Hamhung resulted in the formation of an integrated coalition for chemical industry and research that includes universities such as the National Academy of Science. The significant role that the Hamhung industries played in overcoming the famine when it struck in the 1990s is testament to its resilience 8.

Fabricated Logo of Imaginary “Ministry of Trade and Industry

The image is one of literal and explicit promise for national industrial development. A bold red and gold folded banner frames the logo, much like the actual emblem of the Workers’ Party of the DPRK.




如今,朝鲜制衣工人以其高技能和低成本而广为人知。 再加上朝鲜拥有大量经验丰富的大型纺织厂,所以吸引了外国公司将其作为生产基地12。 证书反映了这一成就。

纺织业今天的成就是通过几十年的密集工作和研究而成的。因咸兴的维尼纶生产推动,使其发展成为一个社会主义模范工业城市。 维尼纶的成功生产启发了维尼纶化学家提出将朝鲜化学家安置在咸兴,促成了一个包括国家科学院的综合联盟成立,发展化学工业与研究。 当90年代饥荒来袭时,咸兴工业在克服饥荒方面发挥了重要作用,由此证明了它的韧性8
