President Ho Chi Minh’s ideology, morality and lifestyle is forever a shining example for Vietnamese people to follow and study towards making efforts to develop the country into a more prosperous and happier one, as per his wish.

Born in the context of the nation being invaded, President Ho Chi Minh had been determined to go abroad to find a way to save the country and people since he was very young. The over 20-year-old young man Nguyen Tat Thanh began his legendary journey around the world to immerse himself in the life of the working class in many countries and study the practices of revolution. He approached Marxism-Leninism and found the right way to save the country. With his extraordinary genius, intelligence and long-sighted vision that went beyond his era, President Ho Chi Minh absorbed and creatively applied Marxism-Leninism to the revolutionary practices in Vietnam while working hard to prepare conditions for the birth of a genuine revolutionary party.

In 1930, the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) was established as the vanguard of the working class and the vanguard of the Vietnamese working people and nation. Accordingly, the first political platform of the CPV was basically formed, highlighting that national liberation was associated with class and human liberation, national independence and socialism. Since then, under the leadership of President Ho Chi Minh and the CPV, the country’s overcame numerous difficulties and challenges and achieved glorious victories. It was the victory of the August Revolution in 1945 which led to the birth of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam - the first people-owned state in the nation's history. It was also the victory of the resistance wars against the French colonialists and the US imperialists for national reunification towards building socialism.

During the cause of revolutionary struggle and national construction and defence, President Ho Chi Minh’s revolutionary route has been increasingly supplemented and developed, guiding the entire Party, people and army to unite to achieve great victories and make the country more prosperous. Notably, under the leadership of the Party, the Vietnamese people steadfastly followed the path chosen by our beloved Uncle Ho to carry out the Doi Moi (Renewal) cause and gained achievements with great significance, contributing to the country’s development, improving the people’s life and affirming Vietnam’s role and position in international arena.

With his whole heart heading towards the nation and people, President Ho Chi Minh was a shining example of patriotism and revolutionary heroism in Vietnam. The Ho Chi Minh era was the most glorious era in the thousand-year history of the nation. His life and career have become a huge and extremely precious legacy. With a comprehensive and profound system of views and theories on Vietnamese revolutionary path, his thought will forever be a torch to guide the nation to move forward socialism. His pure morality and lifestyle act as a great example for all generations of cadres, Party members and people to study and follow.

In celebration of Uncle Ho’s birth anniversary, the entire Party, people and army will continue to further promote the study and following of Ho Chi Minh's ideology, morality and style as well as to uphold the responsibility and enthusiasm to make efforts to carry out the proposed programmes and plans towards achieving important results in 2022, the pivotal year of implementing the Resolution of the 13th National Party Congress.
