HCM City (VNA) – After 42 years of liberation of the south and national reunification, Ho Chi Minh City has made significant achievements in various areas and become a driving force for the country’s development, said Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Nguyen ThanhPhong said at an art performance on April 30.

Currently, the Party Organisation, government and people in the city are striving to improve the living environment, making it a city of civilisation, development and integration, Phong said at the event, which marked the 42nd anniversary of the Liberation of the South and National Reunification (April 30) and the International Labour Day (May 1).

The victory in April 30, 1975 against the US imperialists was a great success in the national liberation led by the Party and President Ho Chi Minh, an important milestone in the country’s thousand-year history of national defence and construction.

Participants enjoyed special music and dances reliving the Vietnamese people’s tradition of fighting foreign invaders, as well as highlighting the national solidarity to push the country forward.-VNA
