President Phuc was accompanied by former National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung as well as incumbent and former leaders of the Party, State, Vietnam Fatherland Front, ministries, sectors and localities as well as representatives from the Nguyen Sinh and the Hoang Xuan families from Nghe An’s Nam Dan district – the hometown of President Ho Chi Minh.

The incense offering ceremony was held at President Ho Chi Minh's temple at Ba Vi Mountain in the outskirt of Hanoi.

Fifty-three years ago, on the 21st day of the 7th lunar month, 1969, President Ho Chi Minh passed away. His testament is an invaluable asset of Vietnamese people. Realizing his testament is the way the Vietnamese people express their gratitude to their beloved leader.

Vietnamese people have over the past years strengthened the movement of following President Ho Chi Minh’s moral example and lifestyle to realise his aspiration to make Vietnam stronger and be in the same par with other countries.
