Seeing the whole of the factory, he said that the interior and exterior of the factory now befit a model factory in medical field and it was perfect both in terms of architectural beauty and technology. He said that the factory was given a complete facelift and its look changed fundamentally.
He acknowledged the factory was built into a high-tech factory capable of mass-producing different kinds of highly efficient medical appliances which are badly needed by hospitals in the country.
Putting into operation trial medical apparatuses produced by the factory, he learned in detail about their performance.
Stressing that it is important to produce lots of medical apparatuses vital for protecting and promoting the people's life but they have to be of high quality, above all, he said in earnest tone that it is precisely an issue related to the outlook on the people.
Calling for putting all the medical appliances to be produced by the factory on the level of those produced by the developed countries, he said the factory should look for data on modern medical appliances, steadily update designs and products in an innovative way to suit to the situation of hospitals in the country and the constitution of patients and thus develop and produce quality medical appliances of high performance and practicability.
Noting that the modernization project of the factory is being done as planned by the Party in general but there are some drawbacks when seen in detail, he pointed to the insufficient quality of the construction that comes short of the needs of design and engineering.
