A researcher on his time in Thailand, Dr Truong Thi Hang, a lecturer at a Thai university and co-author of the book “President Ho Chi Minh: The one who laid the foundation for the modern Vietnam-Thailand relations”, said Uncle Ho’s presence in Thailand aroused patriotism among overseas Vietnamese and strengthened their desire for national salvation in the Fatherland.

The overseas Vietnamese community in Thailand has always been aware of preserving the nation’s traditional values, spreading patriotism among young people and helping children understand their heritage.

The patriotic spirit aroused by President Ho Chi Minh during his time in Thailand has been continued to this day by Vietnamese expatriates./
