Young people’s duty in building prosperous countryJanuary 17, 2023
In 2022 our people achieved proud successes by displaying the spirit of self-reliance and fortitude and creativity while stoutly enduring severe national crises. The successes were the priceless ones that could be attained only by the great people.
The successes are also associated with devoted and patriotic efforts of young Koreans who have always marched straight forward, following the Workers’ Party of Korea.

Looking back upon the proud history of our country adorned with miracles and great feats, the periods of great upsurges in the revolution always coincided with the heyday of the youth movement.
We are entrusted with a heavy duty of inheriting the history and tradition and ushering in a period of new upsurge and change in the revolution. It is a bounden duty of us young people, new generation of the revolution.
The whole country will be ebullient when young people are enthusiastic.
The news about young people who volunteered for the major fronts of socialist construction in response to the Party’s call last year encouraged all the people across the country to wage a vigorous struggle.
We will fully demonstrate the mettle of the Korean youth on the major fronts of socialist construction by keeping up higher the spirit displayed last year.
We young Koreans are never loafers who only enjoy happiness provided by their parents.
The future of the country belongs to the younger generation.
We will create our own happiness by ourselves so that we can recollect it with pride in the distant future and will surely build a prosperous socialist country on this land by our dynamic efforts.
