The symposium was jointly organised by the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics, the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Communications and Education and the Party Committees of Ho Chi Minh City and the northern mountainous province of Cao Bang.
The event was held as part of activities to celebrate 110 years since President Ho Chi Minh left the country to find a way to save the nation (June 5, 1911-2021) and 80 years since he returned home to lead the Vietnamese revolution (January 1, 1941-2021).
Speeches delivered at the symposium focused on analysing the aspiration for national independence and socialism in Ho Chi Minh thought and the realisation of that aspiration by the Vietnamese people through leading the Vietnamese revolution.
His aspiration and final wish was that the entire Party and people unite to strive to build a peaceful, united, independent, democratic and prosperous Vietnam, making a worthy contribution to the cause of the world revolution.
Many presentations also focused on analysing how the Communist Party of Vietnam applied, supplemented and developed Ho Chi Minh thought, whose core was the ideology of national independence and socialism, and the successful implementation of Doi Moi (Renewal) for the goal of wealthy people, a strong country, and a democratic, equal and civilised society.
