The debut of the bookcase is among a wide range of practical activities in celebration of the 77th founding anniversary of the Vietnam People’s Army (December 22, 1944-2021) and 45th founding anniversary of Ho Chi Minh City branch of the Truth National Political Publishing House (December 27, 1976-2021).

At the launch of the bookcase

The bookcase displays some 100 books published by the Truth National Political Publishing House. These are works by President Ho Chi Minh; studies on biography, life, and revolutionary career of President Ho Chi Minh; books on his thought, morality, and lifestyle; books on localities’ and sectors’ experience in studying and promoting values of President Ho Chi Minh’s legacy, among others.

The building and showcase of this bookcase on the Ho Chi Minh municipal book street aim to help readers learn more about Uncle Ho’s life and career and his thought, morality and lifestyle to study and follow.

The debut of this bookcase will be a premise for the building of similar bookcases at schools, in agencies, units and residential areas to enhance the studying and following of President Ho Chi Minh’s example. These will help build a learning environment and society, and bring into play the spirit of lifelong learning and further spread President Ho Chi Minh's thought, morality and lifestyle.

After the launch of the bookcase, the publishing house organized a talk show to introduce a two-volume book collection entitled “Senior Lieutenant General Tran Van Tra and historical journeys of B2.” The book collection brings readers a chance to learn more about the life, career, talent, virtue and contribution of General Tra.
