A national symposium themed Ho Chi Minh and his journey to realize an aspiration for national independence and socialism, took place virtually on May 26 to mark the 110th year of the late President’s departure to seek ways for national salvation and the 80th year of his return to the country, according to VNA.

The symposium was jointly organized by the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics, the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Communications and Education, and the Party Committees of Ho Chi Minh City and the northern mountainous province of Cao Bang.

The event was held as part of activities to celebrate 110 years since President Ho Chi Minh left the country to find a way to save the nation (June 5, 1911-2021) and 80 years since he returned home to lead the Vietnamese revolution (January 1, 1941-2021), Nhan Dan cited.

In his opening speech, Director of the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics Nguyen Xuan Thang stated each step in the President’s 30-year journey, beginning on June 5, 1911, was closely connected to key decisions and historical milestones in Vietnam’s revolutionary cause. He said achievements the nation obtained over the past 35 years were proof that the Communist Party o Vietnam's reform policy was right and creative.

The path to socialism that the Party, President Ho Chi Minh, and Vietnamese people have chosen is consistent with the reality of the country and development trends, he noted.

Speeches delivered at the symposium focused on analyzing the aspiration for national independence and socialism in Ho Chi Minh thought and the realization of that aspiration by the Vietnamese people through leading the Vietnamese revolution. His aspiration and final wish were that the entire Party and people unite to strive to build a peaceful, united, independent, democratic and prosperous Vietnam, making a worthy contribution to the cause of the world revolution.

Many presentations also focused on analyzing how the Communist Party of Vietnam applied, supplemented, and developed Ho Chi Minh thought, whose core was the ideology of national independence and socialism, and the successful implementation of Doi Moi (Renewal) for the goal of wealthy people, a strong country, and a democratic, equal and civilized society.

Concluding the seminar, Chairman of the Party Central Committee’s Commission for Information and Education Nguyen Trong Nghia said close to 60 reports sent to the seminar have inherited the results of previous scientific studies about President Ho Chi Minh.
