Rodong Sinmun says in an editorial Friday that it is posed as the most important problem to strengthen the Cabinet-responsibility system, Cabinet-centered system which is the nucleus of the state economic work system for a great innovation and leap in economic construction by applying the idea of the Workers' Party of Korea of launching an offensive for making a breakthrough head-on at present.
It is the major task of the Cabinet to exercise unified control over the overall national economy, work out a concrete strategy and operation plan based on Party policies and mobilize officials and working people in carrying them out, says the editorial, and goes on:
To strengthen the Cabinet-responsibility system, Cabinet-centered system is a prerequisite to neutralize the moves of the hostile forces to stifle us by giving full play to advantages and might of socialist economy.
The advantages of the planned economy, which mobilizes and uses human and material resources of the country in a rational way and coordinately controls and systematically realizes production, distribution, accumulation and consumption, the high revolutionary enthusiasm of the producer masses, etc. are the motive force enabling the socialist economy to make more rapid development than capitalist one.
Whether the motive force of socialist economic development can be fully played or not depends on the role of the Cabinet in charge of unified control and management over the economic work.
The editorial adds when the Cabinet, the headquarters of the national economy, makes detailed arrangements for economic operation and command for a leap in the economic construction, our politico-ideological and military positions will be further fortified and victory of the construction of a powerful socialist nation will be won earlier.
