A certificate recognising the system of relics commemorating President Ho Chi Minh as a special national relic site was granted to authorities of central Thua Thien-Hue province at a ceremony on November 23.
The special national relic site comprises four sites that were previously classified as special national relics namely President Ho Chi Minh memorial house at Mai Thuc Loan street, Quoc Hoc School, President Ho Chi Minh memorial house in Duong No and Duong No village Communal House in Hue city.
Addressing the ceremony, Secretary of the Thua Thien – Hue provincial Party Committee Le Truong Luu emphasised that there are many precious relics relating to Uncle Ho and his family during their stay in in Thua Thien – Hue in 10 years.
The province will focus on directing relevant agencies to set up a master plan for the four special national relics as well as implementing the project “Promoting the value of President Ho Chi Minh’s relic in Thua Thien – Hue for tourism development”, he said.
Luu said relics and intangible cultural heritage of President Ho Chi Minh in the province will be collected and digitised.
The province will strengthen dissemination on raising people’s awareness to jointly protect and promote the values of the relic, he said, adding that the recognition of special national relic site will be a legal foundation for authorities and agencies to improve the efficiency of management, educate patriotism and national pride and serve as a driving force for the development of the province.
