The “Study and Work after Uncle Ho’s Example” movement will enhance deep awareness, in all levels of society, of Uncle Ho’s thoughts and morality, said Mr. To Huy Rua, Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee and head of its Commission for Ideology and Culture.

For this occasion, the Viet Nam Association of History and Science offered a 75cm-tall bronze statue of Uncle Ho to the Central Committee of the Viet Nam Fatherland Front.

Several seminars about Uncle Ho exhorting people around the country to actively take part in the campaign have also taken place in Viet Nam’s capital.
