Kim Jong Un says high-quality medical equipment “badly needed” in North Korea

In factory visit, DPRK leader calls for country to bring manufacturing to the level of developed countries

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un recently inspected the under-renovation Myohyangsan Medical Appliances Factory, state media reported on Sunday, in a visit in which he said the new factory would be used to produce "badly needed" equipment.

During the on-site inspection, which follows a string of economy-related on-site inspections in recent days, Kim Jong Un described the new facilities as "a model factory in medical field" and "perfect both in terms of architectural beauty and technology."
