In Hanoi, top leaders and former high-ranking officials have gathered to lay flower wreaths and pay tribute to the late president who declared the independence of Vietnam in 1945.

On this occasion, news on President Ho Chi Minh and his thoughts made headlines in the media. In addition, the Vietnamese missions abroad and groups of overseas Vietnamese people have paid tribute to the leader at his monuments in their places.

Meanwhile, on the street, banners and posters celebrate the president’s birthday and convey his thoughts and sayings.

Normally, to celebrate President Ho Chi Minh’s birthday, Vietnam’s agencies, organizations, and schools launch campaigns and contests to encourage people to learn and follow the president’s career and lifestyle.
