92 years ago, during a conference held on February 3, 1930, under the chair of President Ho Chi Minh, three communist organisations in Vietnam, namely the Indochinese Communist Party, the Communist Party of Annam, and the Indochinese Communist League, were united into a single communist party – the Communist Party of Vietnam. The formation of the Communist Party of Vietnam was an important milestone marking a great historical turning point in Vietnam’s revolution.
Before the Communist Party of Vietnam was born, our country had been drowned in a long night of slavery. Many patriotic movements by people from all walks of life had made but they all ended up with failure due to the lack of a sound guideline. In this context, President Ho Chi Minh, under the name of Nguyen Ai Quoc, travelled around the world to find a means to save the country. He found Marxism-Leninism to be a sound way to save and liberate his nation.
Since its establishment, the Party has developed a blood bond with the people and has won absolute trust and support from the people. The Party led the national liberation struggle and led our people to achieve the glorious victory of the August Revolution in 1945, marking the birth of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, the first State of workers and peasants in Southeast Asia.
Despite numerous difficulties and challenges, our Party has led our people to gain brilliant historical milestones by successfully winning the two resistance wars against the French colonialists and the US imperialists to unite the whole country and put it on the path to socialism.
The reality of the past 92 years has shown that the Communist Party of Vietnam is always deserving of its role as the vanguard of the working class, the working people and the whole nation. The sound and clear-sighted leadership of the Party is the decisive factor of every victory of the Vietnamese revolution. During the process, the Party has been renovating itself to become truly and comprehensively pure.
The past nearly 35 years of the Doi Moi (Renewal) process has proved that our Party has no other interest than the People's interest. There have been no political organisations in Vietnam except for the Communist Party of Vietnam, which has enough will, courage, determination, brainpower, experience, prestige and capacity to lead the country to overcome difficulties and challenges and firmly develop with significant progresses.
Taking pride in the glorious Party, we pay gratitude to President Ho Chi Minh – the founder, leader and trainer of our Party. We also remember the dedication and sacrifice of generations of cadres, Party members, compatriots and comrades for have devoted to the goals and ideals of the Party, and the longevity of the nation.
2022 is a year of special significance in the implementation of the Resolution of the 13th National Party Congress. The entire Party, people and army are united together with great determination, high consensus, renovation and creativity to make every effort to overcome all difficulties and challenges and thus create a foundation for the successful implementation of the 2021-2025 development plan.
In the immediate future, all sectors, localities and units strive to take measures on flexible adaptation and effective control of the COVID-19 pandemic, quickly resume economic growth, and ensure stability of people's life.
It is also necessary to enhance Party building and strengthen the building of a pure, strong and comprehensive political system, in order to bring the country forward in a faster and more sustainable manner. Continue to promote the campaign on studying and following President Ho Chi Minh's thought, morality and style in order to raise a higher sense of responsibility among the public to work for the benefit of the Fatherland and the people.
Party committees and authorities at all levels should pay greater attention to raise the spirit of self-criticism, tighten discipline, resolutely clean up the contingent of cadres and party members, improve the fighting strength of each party organisation, drastically fight against corruption and negative actions, and streamline the political apparatus such that it can work more effectively to deserve people’s trust and expectations.
In celebration of the Party’s founding anniversary and the new spring, we vow to unite together to overcome all difficulties and challenges, continue to promote the fruitful results of the Doi Moi process, turn the aspirations of the country's development into reality, and bring Vietnam firmly forward.
