The campaign to “Study and follow late President Ho Chi Minh’s moral examples” has born positive results. The campaign was launched nationwide in association with the Party’s reconstruction work.

It aims to provide a valuable and significant source of material to help Party members and researchers to explore revolutionary historical and traditional values of the nation and the ideology of late President Ho Chi Minh.

By reviewing and following President Ho Chi Minh’s thoughts one can evaluate the decisive elements of all victories of Vietnam’s revolution. The show will help younger generations to discover and glorify outstanding individuals and groups in every corner of the nation, even by overseas Vietnamese

Images of the country during its reconstruction process and the campaign to study and follow President Ho Chi Minh’s moral examples are also being shown. During his life, President Ho Chi Minh always cared about building the Communist Party in politics, ideology and organisation.
