VTV.vn - The Kien Giang provincial authorities held a ground-breaking ceremony on April 29 to kick off the construction of the President Ho Chi Minh memorial complex in Phu Quoc city.

Covering 7.45 hectares in Duong Dong ward, the complex includes an 18m-tall statue of President Ho, a 63-metre-long mural sculpture, a memorial space of President Ho, and other ancillary facilities.

The mural sculpture is placed behind Uncle Ho's statue, featuring typical images and landmarks from the 17th parallel to the south as well as popular places in Kien Giang which affirm Vietnam's sovereignty over the sea and islands.

The construction of the project was funded by both the State budget and local budget.

Speaking at the ceremony, Secretary of Kien Giang provincial Party Committee Do Thanh Binh said that the memorial complex is designed and is built to honour the great service of President Ho Chi Minh – the hero of national liberation and a great man of culture.

The project is scheduled to be completed in 2024 to celebrate the 134th birth anniversary of President Ho Chi Minh.
