Participants discussed General Vo Nguyen Giap’s life and revolutionary career. 

"During his revolutionary life of over 80 years General Giap had made extraordinary contributions to the Party, the nation, and the revolution. He was a talented military strategist who developed strategies and tactics for the people’s war in the Ho Chi Minh era," they said.

His name is closely associated with the Dien Bien Phu victory, which was a victory of international significance.

Associate Professor, Doctor Trinh Thi Hong Hanh from the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics said, “The Dien Bien Phu target was not mentioned in France’s Navarre plan, nor in Vietnam’s Winter 1953-Spring 1954 campaign. Why was Dien Bien Phu identified as the last strategic battlefield? That was because of the resolute and far-sighted guidance of the Communist Party of Vietnam and Commander-in-chief of the Vietnam People’s Army, General Vo Nguyen Giap.”

Participants affirmed that General Vo Nguyen Giap will forever be an exemplary model and a great cultural and ideological figure.
