NDO – A book exhibition, entitled “President Ho Chi Minh with the People’s Public Security and Army”, officially opened at the People’s Public Security Museum in Hanoi on May 16 as part of activities to celebrate the 127th birthday of the former President (May 19, 1890-2017).
The event showcases more than 3,000 book titles featuring the themes of Uncle Ho with the Vietnamese People’s Armed Forces, the history of Vietnam’s People’s Public Security and Army, the People’s Public Security and Army in national construction and defence, and the building of a revolutionary, formal, elite and increasingly modern public security force.
Addressing the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Politburo member and Minister of Public Security To Lam hailed the exhibition as an occasion for officers and soldiers to read books featuring President Ho Chi Minh with the People’s Public Security Force (PPSF), thereby exploring and studying the President’s ideology, morality and lifestyle.
In order to promote the reading movement within the PPSF, Sen. Lieut. Gen. To Lam asked units and localities to continue promoting the reading culture among officers, soldiers and students, while urging press agencies, publishers and libraries under the force to renovate and improve the quality of documents and publications and to develop abundant and diverse sources of documents.
He also requested the General Department of Politics to enhance its advisory role in implementing the project “Developing the reading culture in the community until 2020, oriented towards 2030”; guiding the establishment of bookcases, including a thematic bookcase on the behavioural culture of the PPSF; and developing books on the behavioural culture of the force.
On the occasion, Sen. Lieut. Gen. To Lam presented units of the PPSF copies of the over-300-page book “President Ho Chi Minh’s ideology on staff and personnel work in the People’s Public Security Force”.
