Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh and a Government delegation offered incense in tribute to President Ho Chi Minh at the Ho Chi Minh Museum at Nha Rong Wharf in HCM City on June 5, the date when 111 years ago Ho Chi Minh left the country on a ship to seek the way for national salvation.

The PM and the delegation also paid respect to President Ton Duc Thang, an exemplary communist and close comrade of President Ho Chi Minh, and a leader of the Vietnamese working class. On June 5, 1911, from Nha Rong Wharf of Sai Gon, now Ho Chi Minh City, Ho Chi Minh, known in those days as Nguyen Tat Thanh, boarded the ship Admiral Latouche Treville, beginning his journey to seek ways for national salvation.

Thirty years later, he returned to Vietnam to lead the Vietnamese revolution which successfully conducted the August Revolution in 1945 and founded the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, now the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.

On the occasion, PM Chinh visited the thematic exhibition on President Ho Chi Minh which was opened the same day at Nha Rong Wharf to mark the date the nation’s beloved leader began his journey to salvage the country.

The display, sponsored by the Ho Chi Minh Museum ’s branches in Ho Chi Minh City and Thua Thien-Hue provinces, introduces 150 photos, pictures and documents on the President’s life before leaving the country, divided into three parts. Part 1 focuses on the childhood of Ho Chi Minh in Hue and his travel to the south when growing up. Part 2 features the old Sai Gon where Nguyen Tat Thanh lived and worked before boarding the Admiral La Touche De Tréville, and Part 3 introduces the country’s development across the fields./.
