Applying V.I. Lenin’s thought creatively into the Vietnam’s revolution
The strong desire for independence, freedom for the people and the country urged Nguyen Ai Quoc - President Ho Chi Minh to find the way to save the country. He encountered the Draft Theses on National and Colonial Questions by V.I. Lenin. When reading this Draft Theses by V.I. Lenin, He felt moved: “Sitting alone in the room but I just wanted to shout out as if I was addressing to the mass: “My miserable fellows! This is what needed for us, this is the way for our liberation!”
President Ho Chi Minh considered V.I. Lenin’s thought and the lesson from Russian October Revolution as the “magic guidebook” and He comprehended and applied it creatively into Vietnam revolution. He established, trained the Vietnam Communist Party to take the role of leading Vietnamese people to overcome many difficulties and challenges to gain national independence, country union and led the country to socialism.
After 45 years of liberating the South and unifying the country, under the leadership of the Party, our country has made huge and historic achievements. Vietnam has transformed from a poor and backward country into a developing, middle-income one; people enjoy better physical and spiritual life; the national solidarity is continuously reinforced, enlarged and promoted; independence and sovereignty are maintained; the position and credibility of the country are increased in the international arena… The achievements are possible because our Party are loyal, consistent and creative in applying Marxism, Leninism and Ho Chi Minh’s thought.
