On June 14, 1957, Nghe An provice was honored to receive Uncle Ho who left his hometown for foreign countries more than 50 years earlier to seek ways for national salvation.

During the meeting with the provincial Party committee and people, President Ho Chi Minh hoped them to bring into the province’s tradition, solidarity and exert all efforts to build a developing and exemplary province.

Following Uncle Ho’s teachings, the province’s Party committee and people have tried their best to surmount difficulties, exploit strengths and mobilize all resources to obtain achievements in different fields. Accordingly, the province’s gross domestic product increased by 7.59 percent on average in 2014-2016. Besides, income per capita was VND 31 million, up 1.4 folds compared to that in 2013. Attentively, the Party building service in the current context has improved.

Addressing the ceremony, Mr. Chinh expressed deep respect for and gratitude to President Ho Chi Minh’s great merit to the national salvation, construction and protection cause.

The provincial leadership, army and people will promote their high spirit and pride of their tradition to develop the province. Nghe An province will set an exemplary role in effectively implementing central resolutions on Party building and revamping, heighten solidarity and integrated strength to meet all set targets.

An art program in praise of the Party and Uncle Ho and showing people’s respect for Uncle Ho and Uncle Ho’s sentiments for the home province of Nghe An was also organized during the ceremony.
