New North Korean posters hail New Year Address, economic and scientific development

Recently-released propaganda hopes to "inspire the people," state media reports

North Korean media on Wednesday published a range of new propaganda posters, calling on citizens to follow orders given by leader Kim Jong Un in his New Year Address and hailing recent ruling party decrees on the economy and scientific development.

The new posters, published by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), come amid a slew of political events in the country intended to shore up support for Kim's New Year speech, and feature imagery focusing on heavy industry, the ruling party's five-year strategy for national economic development, and the agricultural sector.
