HCM CITY — HCM City yesterday launched two photo exhibitions to mark the 70th anniversary celebration of President Hồ Chí Minh’s June 11,1948 appeal for patriotic emulation.

The exhibition at Nguyễn Huệ Pedestrian Street in District 1 displays more than 100 black-and-white and colour photos and documents.

Half of the display reflects soldiers’ and people’s activities to implement President Hồ Chí Minh’s call for patriotic emulation which encouraged everyone to contribute to the resistance war to liberate the country.

The activities include the national large-scale movements during the American war, including Ba sẵn sàng (Youth are Ready for Three Tasks), Ba đảm đang (Women with Three Responsibilities), and Năm Xung Phong (Youth Volunteers in Five Tasks), among others. 

Half of the exhibits introduce HCM City’s achievements in economy, society and culture, and international integration, after 70 years of implementing President Hồ Chí Minh’s appeal for patriotic emulation.

Nguyễn Hồng Hạnh, a resident in District 1, said: "Through the exhibition, I learned more about President Hồ Chí Minh and his appeal for patriotic emulation which has helped our country achieve victory and independence.”

“I believe the exhibition will motivate young generations in study and protect the country in peace time,” said Hạnh.

Along with the exhibition will be a music and dance performance which will be organised on Nguyễn Huệ Pedestrian Street tonight.

The show will include songs in praise of President Hồ Chí Minh, the country and HCM City.

It will feature famous singers like Thanh Thúy and Võ Hạ Trâm, along with singers from the Youth Culture House and the Conservatory of Music.

Another exhibition along Đồng Khởi Street in District 1 showcases 50 photos that depict the city’s achievements in infrastructure building, including urban areas, flyover bridges and the ongoing metro system project.

The two exhibitions will run until June 20. — VNS
