The headquarters of the Northwest Regional Party Committee located in Van Chan district of Yen Bai province, has been recognised as a national historic site.

The Van Chan authorities held a ceremony to receive the status on September 30.

In the coming time, Yen Bai province will increase the popularisation of the relic site to the public, thus raising awareness of protecting heritages, while organising tours to and cultural activities at the site.

It will also gradually perfect the planning of the site so that it is always a “red address” where young people learn about the revolutionary tradition of the nation.

From 1952-1954, under the direction of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee and President Ho Chi Minh, the regional party committee led the army and people of Yen Bai, Lao Cai, Son La and Lai Chau provinces to fortify the revolutionary government and liberated the whole northwest region.-VNA
