The other officials in attendance included Vice President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh, former Vice President Truong My Hoa, and various leaders of the Party General Secretary and President Offices.
The Party and State leader stressed the necessity of understanding the late President’s testament and the Declaration of Independence, stating that this year’s National Day celebration is being held alongside the organisation of congresses by various levels of the Party nationwide ahead of the 13th National Party Congress.
In addition, he also used the occasion to extend his thanks to staff at the complex for successfully fulfilling their assigned tasks.
Furthermore, the leader then paid a visit to an exhibition at the complex which is currently displaying approximately 100 documentary photos relating to the revolutionary career of President Ho Chi Minh.
The late President led the country to success in its long struggle to achieve national independence. On September 2, 1945, he read the Declaration of Independence, proclaiming to the world the founding of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, now known as the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
He was a talented leader and a national hero who devoted his whole life to noble causes such as national independence, freedom, and the happiness of the people, while also tirelessly striving to achieve both peace and progress in the world.
House No. 67 was the location where President Ho Chi Minh lived, worked, and eventually passed away. During the war, it also served as the venue for Politburo meetings.
