Vietnam's Communist Party marks its 90th founding anniversary

Today, February 3, 2020, the entire Party, people and army of Vietnam proudly celebrate the 90th founding anniversary of the Communist Party of Vietnam - the Party which was founded, led and trained by the great President Ho Chi Minh

Over the past 90 years, the Party has led the nation’s revolution to overcome all hardships and challenges and gain many victories, turning Vietnam from an unknown country on the world map into a nation with prestigious position in the international arena.

Before the Communist Party of Vietnam was born, our country was drowned in a long night of slavery. People rose up against the oppression and exploitation of the colonialist and feudal regime with many patriotic movements, but all failed because there was no defined path. 

In this context, our Uncle Ho, under the name of Nguyen Ai Quoc, travelled around the world to find a way to save the country. He found Marxism-Leninism as the only way to save and liberate his nation. 

On February 3, 1930, under his presiding, three communist organisations gathered to unite into a party called the Communist Party of Vietnam. From here, the revolution of our country had the guiding banner of the Communist Party of Vietnam, the vanguard of the working class and the Vietnamese people.

Numerous foreign parties from across the world have sent congratulatory messages for the Party's 90th anniversary. Among them, the First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee Raul Castro Ruz, and Chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) and Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong Un have also sent messages of congratulations to Vietnamese General Party Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong.

A solemn meeting was held in the capital city of Hanoi on February 3 to celebrate the 90th founding anniversary of the Communist Party, with the participation of Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong, former leaders of the Party, State, and revolutionary veterans. A special art programme was also held during the meeting to celebrate the Party’s 90th founding anniversary. The programme featured famous songs praising the glorious path during the last nine decades of the Party, as well as showing deep felt sentiments towards beloved Uncle Ho, the spring and the nation.
