Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has urged rapid progress on the compilation and publishing of the book collection “History of the Vietnamese Government from 1945 to 2015”.

During his recent working session with the Steering Committee for compiling and publishing the book, Phuc underscored the necessity of the project, saying that this aims to reflect comprehensively, exactly and systematically the establishment and development of the Vietnamese Revolutionary Government through its various periods.
He stressed that the project is expected to draw on lessons and experience to improve the effectiveness of the Government’s State management, contributing to building the State and national political system in line with Party resolutions.

The final collection will serve as an official document to introduce Vietnam’s Government and administrative apparatus to international friends, as well as a source of reference for people from all walks of life, Phuc added.

The initiative includes a 3-volume book collection focusing on the History of the Vietnamese Government from 1945 to 2005, published and reprinted with revisions and supplements, a 1945-2005 Vietnamese Government chronicle with five revised and reprinted volumes; a newly-published collection reviewing the history of Vietnamese Government from May 2005 to 2015; a newly-published book on the history of the Vietnamese Government in the 2005-2015 period; and a total recap of the 1945-2015 history of the Vietnamese Government.

The Deputy Prime Minister also stressed that it is necessary to produce other related products, such as documentary films and photos, to increase the popularisation of the History of the Vietnamese Government. He also underscored the importance of providing electronic versions for the archives.

According to a recent decision by the Prime Minister, the Steering Committee will be principally responsible for the work, focusing on overseeing the drafts and guiding the research, compilation, appraisal and publication of the book collection.

Other relevant bodies will be responsible for the provision of necessary information and documents on the topic per request.-VNA
