Pyongyang to hold new plenary session to finalize 2021 strategy
Seoul, Feb 7 (efe-epa).- North Korea will soon hold a new single party plenary session to determine a roadmap of its 2021 strategic plan, agreed at its recent congress, state media reported Sunday.
The session will take place “within the first 10 days of February, to deliberate and determine the 2021 work plans in all sectors to fulfill the strategic tasks presented at the eighth congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea,” KCNA agency said.
North Korean held its eighth party congress in January and set various objectives, including a new five-year economic development plan based on self-reliance, the development of a new weapons system and continuation of developing the country’s nuclear arsenal.
North Korea routinely holds such plenary sessions at least once a year, in which it outlines its key policies, party restructuring, and other issues.
The regime already held the first plenary session of the party committee in January during the congress. EFE-EPA
