Party works for the interest of the nation

In the busy atmosphere to welcome spring, on February 3, 2020, the entire Party, people and army celebrated the 90th anniversary of the Communist Party of Vietnam - the Party which was founded and led 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. It has turned Vietnam from an unknown country into a nation with a prestigious position in the international arena.

Before the Communist Party of Vietnam was born, our country was drowning 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 guidance, three communist organizations gathered to unite into a group called the Communist Party of Vietnam. Since then, the revolution of our country has had the guiding banner of the Communist Party of Vietnam, the vanguard of the working class and the Vietnamese people.

The founding of the Party was an important turning point in the Vietnamese revolution. Under the leadership of the Party, our people created miracles in the 20th century. They included the glorious victory of the August Revolution in 1945, which opened a new era of national independence associated with socialism. Vietnam also won two wars, one against the French colonialists and the other against the US imperialists to unite the whole country and put it on the path to socialism.

Over the past 90 years, despite numerous difficulties and challenges, the Party has always shown its bravery and loyalty to the interests of the working class and the people. The Party has been humble and raised the spirit of self-criticism to correct its mistakes and defects. Therefore, the people have always trusted in, supported, and persistently followed the Party’s leadership to overcome all difficulties and challenges, in order to build a more prosperous and happier Vietnam.

The reality of the past 90 years has proved that the Party’s correct and wise leadership is the decisive factor of all victories of the Vietnamese revolution. During that process, the Party has become more experienced, intellectual and braver, worthy of the mission of leading the revolutionary cause of the Vietnamese nation. Experiencing the fight for independence and protection of the great Fatherland, as well as in the cause of national construction and development, the Party has always considered serving the people as its goal. Over the past nearly 35 years of the Doi Moi (Renewal) process initiated and led by the Party, the country has accomplished great achievements of historical significance, marking the maturity of our Party, State and people in all aspects. From a poor and backward country, Vietnam has risen to become a middle-income developing country with a stable social and political situation. National independence and territorial sovereignty have been maintained. External relations have been expanded and the country’s position has been constantly improved in the international arena. This is the result of a profound, comprehensive and thorough transformation process, promoting the intelligence and strength of the entire Party and people, while at the same time affirming the Party’s close bond to the people in building a great national unity bloc.

In the joyful atmosphere throughout the country, and with the proud achievements obtained in the past year, the entire Party, people and army are striving to overcome challenges and continue to promote all potentials, advantages and resources to make drastic changes in all fields to achieve higher results in 2020 - a year of special significance. This is the last year of the term to implement the Resolution of the 12th National Party Congress, in which the county will organize party congresses at all levels towards the 13th Party Congress; celebrate the 75th anniversary of the National Day, the 130th birth anniversary of President Ho Chi Minh; and take over the dual role of ASEAN Chair and non-permanent membership of the UN Security Council, among many other important political events.

The country is facing new opportunities. With confidence in the path that Uncle Ho and the Party have chosen, each person should set their own determination as Party General Secretary and President Nguyen Phu Trong said on the first day of the Lunar New Year: “Whether we can awaken the potential and turn it into resources for national construction and defense depends on the will of the entire Party and nation as well as of each Vietnamese person”.
