Tuyen Quang (VNA) – The Kim Binh historical site in the northern province of Tuyen Quang received a certificate accrediting it as a special national relic site at a ceremony on February 2.

Sixty-six years ago, the late President Ho Chi Minh selected Kim Binh commune, Chiem Hoa district to host the second National Party Congress, the first organised in Vietnam and the only one held outside the capital city of Hanoi.

At the event, the congress made a range of major decisions, including the road map to a complete victory of the then revolution as well as the election of the Party Central Committee’s members, with Ho Chi Minh as president and Truong Chinh as general secretary.

In his speech at the ceremony, head of the Party Central Committee’s Organisation Commission Pham Minh Chinh hailed socio-economic achievements Tuyen Quang has made recently.

He recommended the province pay heed to the conservation of local relic sites, making them an effective tool to educate young generations on patriotism.

At the ceremony, Chinh also presented gifts to people who contributed to the revolution and social welfare beneficiaries in Kim Binh commune.-VNA
