Kim Jong Il, top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), urged to boost the country's economy through self-reliance, the official Rodong Sinmun daily said on Thursday.

Kim made the remark while inspecting several places in the DPRK capital Pyongyang, including a fish farm, a factory and a university, the newspaper reported, without giving the date of the inspections.

The nation's self-supporting economy is now making rapid progress, fully demonstrating its tremendous potential, Kim said.

He also urged to speed up the pace of building a great prosperous and powerful nation.
