– A workshop was held in Hanoi on October 26 to highlight the historical value of the Great October Socialist Revolution of Russia.

The event featured the impacts of the revolution on the development of socialism, communist movement, and international workers over the past century as well as its significance to the “Doi moi” (reform) process in Vietnam.

Head of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee’s Information and Education Commission Vo Van Thuong said the successful October Revolution not only marks the birth of the first socialist state in the world but also creates a premise for the establishment of the socialist system and regime which eliminates all unjust oppression and brings equality and freedom for human being.

The revolution brought new light to Vietnam since the country’s resistance war against the French colonialists were experiencing profound changes and the working class was developing strongly and involving in the political arena, helping put an end to the crisis of national liberation in the early 20th century, he said.

The historical event not only shed light to the revolutionary path of Vietnam but also encouraged workers and peasants to stand up to overthrow the colonialism and feudalism, he added.

After 100 years, the ideal of peace, national independence, democracy and socialism of the October Revolution still shines and fuels the revolutionary spirit of progressive people around the world, including Vietnamese, he affirmed.

The event also looked into historical lessons as well as the success and failure of the socialist realism to seek new, rapid, sustainable and appropriate development on the path of building and safeguarding the nation in the light of international integration, he noted.-VNA
