HCM City (VNA) – The administration of Ho Chi Minh City held a ceremony at the Ho Chi Minh Museum, located at Nha Rong Wharf, on June 5 to celebrate 110 years since the late leader’s start on a journey to look for ways to save the country from colonial yoke.

In his speech, Politburo member and Secretary of the municipal Party Committee Nguyen Van Nen recalled the life and revolutionary career of President Ho Chi Minh (1890 - 1969), who was known as Nguyen Tat Thanh when he boarded a vessel at Nha Rong Wharf on June 5, 1911, embarking on a 30-year journey around the world to seek a path to national liberation.

Nen affirmed that Ho Chi Minh left priceless and sustainable legacies for later generations, with the biggest being the aspiration for national independence and socialism.

The President’s ideology, morality, lifestyle, and the entire life he spent on fighting for national independence and people’s freedom and happiness will forever guide the country on the path to build a country of prosperity and happiness, the official noted.

He added that with the patriotic tradition and solidarity, the whole city will exert joint efforts to develop and become more wealthy and civilised, thus better deserving its honour to be named after President Ho Chi Minh.

On this occasion, a delegation of municipal leaders led by Nen offered incense and flowers in commemoration of President Ho Chi Minh, along with President Ton Duc Thang – one of the first revolutionaries of the workers’ and proletarian revolutionary movements in Vietnam, at Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum at Nha Rong Wharf./.
