State President Nguyen Minh Triet on September 19 presented the Ho Chi Minh Order to the Ho Chi Minh Relic Complex in Hanoi in recognition of its substantial contributions to the revolutionary cause of the Party and the nation.
Addressing the awards ceremony which also marked the 40th anniversary year of the establishment of the complex, President Triet praised the silent but significant efforts made over the past 40 years by officials and staff of the complex in researching, collecting and preserving historical documents and objects relating to the late President.
President Triet stressed that President Ho Chi Minh is the great teacher, leader and cultural activist who steered the Vietnamese revolution to victory. He called on every Vietnamese to draw up their own plan of action to follow the late President’s moral examples to successfully build socialism in the country.
The relic complex, located inside the Presidential Palace in Hanoi, is where President Ho Chi Minh lived and worked for 15 years until he died in September 1969.
Since 1969, the complex has welcomed approximately 50 million domestic and foreign visitors who come to study President Ho’s revolutionary life.
In August 2008, the Prime Minister signed a decision to categorise it as a special national historic and cultural relic complex.
