Vientiane (VNA) –
The Lao translations of the second, fourth, and sixth volumes of the Complete Works of Ho Chi Minh were introduced at a ceremony in Vientiane on July 24.

Attending the launching ceremony were Vo Van Thuong (Politburo member, Secretary of the CPV Central Committee, and head of the CPV Central Committee’s Commission for Information and Education), Kikeo Khaykhamphithoune (Secretary of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party Central Committee, and head of the LPRP Central Committee’s Commission for Propaganda and Training), among others.

The Complete Works of Ho Chi Minh feature the journey of late President Ho Chi Minh to save the country and lead the Vietnamese revolution from victory to victory.

The translation project was jointly carried out by the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics and the Lao National Academy of Politics and Public Administration as part of the 2014 cooperation agreement on economy, culture, and science and technology between the Vietnamese and Lao governments. 

The second volume of the book highlights President Ho Chi Minh’s revolutionary activities in China during 1924-1929, before the foundation of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV).

The fourth reflects the President’s notable activities when encountering difficulties in economic, military, political, and social matters after the August Revolution.

The sixth features the President’s revolutionary guidelines and strategies in the 1949-1950 period to promote the cause of national construction.

Associate Prof. Dr. Nguyen Viet Thao, Deputy Director of the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics, said the experience gained from the bilateral cooperation will be an important foundation for the two sides to soon complete the remaining translations of the complete works.

The first volume of the Complete Works of Ho Chi Minh was completed in September 2017.-VNA
