BEIJING, Sept. 10 (Yonhap) -- A speech made by North Korea's young leader Kim Jong-un last year that detailed his plan on land management has been published in Chinese, a state media report said Tuesday, in what is believed to be his first Chinese-language publication.

The Chinese-version of Kim's speech, titled "On Brining About a Revolutionary Turnabout in National Land Management Work to Meet the Demand of Building a Powerful Socialist State," was published on Sept. 3 in Dandong, China's border city with North Korea, China News Service reported.

According to the report, the speech by Kim was published by a Chinese printing firm named "Longshan," but it did not give other information, including the name of its publisher or whether the publication is being sold.

Kim, who took power in late 2011 following the death of his father, Kim Jong-il, made the speech on April 27 of last year, while convening a meeting of key members of the North's Workers' Party of Korea and economic organizations.

During the April 27 meeting, Kim said, "Land management is a patriotic work for the eternal prosperity of the country, and a noble work for providing the people with better living conditions," according to a report by the North's state media at the time.

Kim also ordered officials to improve water management, including the improvement of rivers and streams as well as dams, lock gates and "gravity-fed waterways and irrigation channels."
