The President Ho Chi Minh relic site at the Presidential Palace complex coordinated with the National Archives Centre III to open the exhibition "President Ho Chi Minh with patriotic emulation movement", on June 11th. The exhibition displays nearly 100 documents and images. The exhibition runs until June 30th.

On the same day, many provinces and cities, such as Da Nang city and the provinces of Dien Bien, Quang Binh, Phu Yen and Quang Nam organised ceremonies to celebrate the 70th anniversary of President Ho Chi Minh's Call for Patriotic Emulation (June 11th, 1948 - 2018) and honour organisations and individuals, who made many contributions in implementing the city’s patriotic emulation movements.

Meanwhile, the Thai Nguyen Provincial Party Committee, the Provincial People's Council, the Provincial People's Committee, and the Provincial Fatherland Front Committee have co-organised a ceremony at the provincial cultural centre to celebrate the 70th anniversary of President Ho Chi Minh’s call for patriotic emulation and to honour 70 outstanding organisations and individuals, who made many contributions in implementing the city’s patriotic emulation movements, and 35 individuals and organisations, who won the prize in the writing contest on ‘Studying and Following President Ho Chi Minh’s Thoughts, Morals and Style’.

On the morning of June 11th, the delegation of the provincial Party Committee, the People's Council, the People's Committee and the Fatherland Front Committee, as well as the representatives of departments, unions, armed forces and Hue City offered incense and flowers to President Ho Chi Minh at the Ho Chi Minh Museum in Thua Thien-Hue province.

Seven decades ago, in the Spring of 1948, the country was struggling as it waged its resistance war against the French. To encourage the nation to contribute to the war, President Ho Chi Minh made an appeal for patriotic work emulation on June 11th, 1948.

Opening the appeal he wrote: “The purpose of patriotic work emulation is to eliminate poverty and hunger and illiteracy and foreign aggressors. It means our entire people have enough rice to eat and clothing to wear. The entire population will know how to read and to write. The soldiers will have enough food and weapons to defeat the foreign aggressors. These are aimed to unite the entire nation. Thus we will have an independent nation, free civil rights and happy welfare of the people."

The appeal has encouraged all people to promote the tradition of patriotism and solidarity and step up emulation work in order to overcome all difficulties and challenges in the struggle for national liberation and during the nation building and development cause./.
