Pyongyang, January 19 (KCNA) -- A sheetlet reflecting the contents of the joint New Year editorial published by leading newspapers of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea has been brought out in the country.

Printed on the upper part of the sheetlet is "Bring about a radical turn in the people's standard of living by accelerating the development of light industry and agriculture once again this year that marks the "65th anniversary of the founding of the Workers' Party of Korea!", a slogan set forth in the editorial for the Korean people to hold high this year.

The sheetlet calls on the light industry and agricultural sectors, the major fronts of the efforts for improving the people's living standard, to increase consumer goods output and agricultural production.
