Rodong Sinmun Calls for Building Independent Economy

   Pyongyang, October 4 (KCNA) -- In order to maintain an independent stand, every country should build self-supporting economy, says Rodong Sinmun Saturday in an article.
    No country can expect any independence without increasing the independence of national economy, the article notes, and goes on:
    It is nothing but a daydream for a country to develop economy without making it self-supporting, no matter how ardently it aspires after independence and pursues justice and truth,
    If a country runs national economy with capital and efforts of others, it will be bound to depend on foreign forces for its economic development and loose its say and, in the long run, it will allow itself to fall in a moment.
    As the imperialists are resorting to frantic moves to slap sanctions against other countries aspiring after independence, the issue of increasing the independence of national economy presents itself as a more urgent matter.
    One of the important issues of achieving economic self-support is to train native cadres and scientific and technological talents and develop one's own science and technology.
    Self-reliance is the basic principle which should be maintained to dynamically push ahead with the building of self-supporting national economy and lay the material and technological foundation of a country by believing in the strength of the people and relying on its locally available resources.
    It is an essential requirement for ensuring economic self-support to boost economic and technological cooperation and South-South cooperation among developing countries.
    Very enormous are manpower and economic and technological potentials of developing countries. If all these are effectively harnessed and used, it is possible to boost South-South cooperation and facilitate the building of self-supporting national economy and common development. -0-
