North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s Proposed Plan to Develop Country’s Economy:
After dismissing the country’s top general for disapproving for change, North Korea’s new leader Kim Jong-un and his uncle Jang Song-thaek are getting ready to try out new agricultural and economic reforms.
After the collapse of Vice Marshal Ri Yong-Ho, also Kim’s father, the weight is now on the new leader, Kim’s shoulder to save the economy and avoid it to collapse. North Korea has already tried to improve itself and make it more economic by increasing its market but it was unsuccessful and triggered and outrage at the end of 2009.
North Korea has 1.2 million people in its military and is one of the biggest military forces in the world. Previous leaders of North Korea has always used the ‘military first’ policy. To follow its nuclear ambitions, they dejected the poor and its political necessity. Kim has been named as the Marshal of the republic and he also heads the Worker’s Party of Korea as well as the first chairman of National Defense Commission.
Kim Jong-un has done lots of study and research in planning the reforms, so that it fits in, in such a way that it mixes with the current policy. They are turning to China for economic help as China is their major ally. The Workers Party is now studying about economic and agricultural reforms from its giant benefactor, China. The cabinet has also made a special bureau to take control of its shattered economy from its military. The military has long been in power and has been using the country’s main money for its nuclear passion and kept plunging into an economic collapse.
The leaders from Beijing urged Pyongyang to make steps for a good growth in economic reforms. They are worried that they will send many refugees to its nemesis, South Korea which would cause a brutal killing of many poor North Koreans.
Kim Jong has been seen visiting concerts, local fun fairs as well as speaking and interacting in public to express himself more to his people so that he can lead them easily with his new reforms. Despite the bold strictness of his father, Ri Yong Ho, he is making himself as much public as he can possibly can so that the Koreans trust their new young leader in the changes he hopes to bring.
The question still rises that why does Kim Jong-un and his uncle suddenly think about bringing economic reforms? And yet, why does he not follow the footsteps of his father in being strict and support the ‘military first’ policy?
Yet, now Kim is now facing the pure pressure as the economy of North Korea is trembling badly and still has to cope up to the strict rules and regulations with the South which is heavily protected by USA. The plans Kim wants to introduce will combine in such a way that it will not affect the existing one. For now, we are all waiting to see if the young and new North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un is ready to take on the challenges ahead of him, only time will tell.
