Measures to conserve and fully capture the value of the President Ho Chi Minh relic site at the Presidential Palace were discussed during a workshop held in Hanoi on September 5.

As part of the celebrations organised for the 45 th anniversary of implementing the president’s testament, the event offered the chance for researchers, experts and scientists to share their experience in conservation work and present recent studies on the relic site.

Participants spoke highly of Ho Chi Minh’s outstanding morality and thoughts, as well as the significance of the objects displayed at the site. They proposed conservation plans and measures to promote the value of the site.
In addition, they also discussed the difficulties and challenges they faced in preserving the site.

Director of the site Nguyen Van Cong gave the event participants an overview of the site, where President Ho Chi Minh lived and worked for 15 years (1954-1969).

He said that all the objects and parts of the site were historically valuable in various ways, and manifested the extraordinary thoughts, lifestyle, morality and spirit of the President’s tireless dedication to the national revolution and happiness of the people.

In this site, the President wrote his will, which brought together the late President’s historic, cultural and ideological values, and mapped out a course of action for Vietnam’s revolution, both for the present and the future.

Over the last 45 years, relic site staff has undertaken maximum efforts to preserve the exhibits displayed at the site, and has introduced Uncle Ho’s life and revolutionary career to friends all over the world.

The site welcomes millions of visitors every year.-VNA
