More than 200 photos, documentaries and objects featuring the establishment and development of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) are on display at the Hanoi-based Ho Chi Minh Museum.

The exhibition, which was opened on January 7, is designed to welcome the upcoming 11th National Party Congress, slated for January 12-19, and the 81st founding anniversary of the CPV (Feb. 3).

To Huy Rua, Politburo member, Secretary and Head of the Commission for Information and Education of the CPV Central Committee cut the ribbon to kick off the event.

The show highlights the CPV’s important historical milestones, including a conference to unite communist organisations in Vietnam , presided over by Nguyen Ai Quoc, which marked the CPV’s inception on February 3, 1930, and the past 10 National Party Congresses.

The exhibition also tells the glorious victories the Vietnamese people have achieved over the past 81 years. Worthy of note are the August Revolution and the founding of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam in 1945, the successes of the resistance wars against foreign aggressors, the socialist construction and renewal processes, as well as the country’s achievements in foreign affairs and international integration./.
