Update: May 19, 2014
An exhibition showcasing photos and documents on the late President Ho Chi Minh’s life and revolutionary activities opened in Paris on May 17.

The event, entitled “Ho Chi Minh and Vietnamese cultural heritage”, was jointly held by the Ho Chi Minh Museum and the Viet Nam Culture Centre in France in observance of the Viet Nam Year in France and President Ho Chi Minh’s 124th birth anniversary (May 19).

In addition to highlighting Ho Chi Minh’s revolutionary life, the exhibition also introduces international visitors to the beautiful landscapes and people of Viet Nam, as well as government policies aimed at upholding and preserving natural and cultural heritages.

Nguyen Thuy Duc, acting Director of the Ho Chi Minh Museum, said the photos would help French friends and overseas Vietnamese in France understand more about President Ho’s attention to cultural heritage preservation.

Through the exhibition Viet Nam is expected to attract more French tourists and Vietnamese expatriates and strengthen international solidarity between the two nations.

Visitors to the exhibition, which runs until June 4, will have the opportunity to enjoy a special music and dance programme, with the participation of famous singer Anh Tuyet, in praise of President Ho Chi Minh and his revolutionary activities abroad.
