NDO/VNA – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on January 31 offered incense in tribute to late leaders of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) and the Government as the country’s biggest traditional Tet (Lunar New Year) festival is approaching.

PM Phuc and Deputy PM Truong Hoa Binh paid homage to late Prime Minister Pham Van Dong, who had served as a Politburo member in 35 years and as Prime Minister in 32 years from 1955 to 1987.

Offering incense to former CPV General Secretary, former Chairman of the Council of Ministers and former Adviser of the CPV Central Committee Do Muoi, who passed away in October 2018, PM Phuc recalled his turning-point decisions and initiatives to strongly develop heavy industries towards national industrialisation and modernisation, thus building an independent and self-reliant economy.

While paying tribute to late Deputy PM and Foreign Minister Nguyen Co Thach, PM Phuc reminisced about his strategic vision that helped the country get out of economic embargo and diplomatic isolation as well as normalise and expand relations with big nations and international organisations.

The same day, PM Phuc and Deputy PM Binh also offered incense to late President Tran Dai Quang who passed away in September 2018.
