Kim Il-sung, the founder of North Korea’s Communist party, has ordered that every mother’s clothing line should be as expensive as her baby’s.
The new orders, issued in an online notice that has been shared by several news outlets, will be made mandatory for all mothers, as well as their families, to purchase new baby clothes in North Korea.
According to Kim’s order, each new family member should be asked to purchase two new items.
Kim, the late dictator’s son, ruled North Korea from 1953 until his death in 2011.
In 2017, the country’s economy grew by about 4.5% as a result of an unprecedented boom in exports of North Korean goods.
As of January 2018, the North Korean economy had a GDP of $20.8 trillion.
North Korea is the world’s second-largest exporter of cosmetics and cosmetics products.
It has also developed a reputation for exporting counterfeit goods and the use of drugs, which it blames on South Korea and the United States.
After Kim Jong Un’s death in late 2011, the ruling party’s leadership decided to overhaul its economy, which was already reeling from a massive economic collapse.
Analysts say the new order will put pressure on Kim Jong-un’s regime, which has not been able to grow its exports since the North’s famine of the early 1990s.

“The new measures should be taken at the earliest,” the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said.
“The government’s aim is to revitalise the economy.”
The order states that the new orders will be issued in the North Korea capital, Pyongyang, but that they should be sent to “all families.”
North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, who died in 2011, has long been known for his strict adherence to the nation’s strict economic system.
Under Kim Jong In, the regime has launched a string of economic reforms in recent years, including the opening of an export-oriented economy, a major new oil and gas field, and the launch of new consumer goods lines.
Many analysts say the economy has slowed since the famine, which saw millions of North Koreans starve to death.
Experts have also pointed to recent reports of corruption in North Korean society, including allegations of state-owned companies using government contracts to help their companies evade sanctions.
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has said in a report that more than 5.6 million people have died as a direct result of famine.
