Nguyen Cong Ly, director of the Nguyen Sinh Sac Memorial, spoke of Nguyen Sinh Sac’s great contributions to the revolutionary cause and his work as a respected doctor in Hoa An, the village in Cao Lanh where the memorial stands.

The memorial’s board of management augmented the proceedings with a photo exhibition titled “Learn and Follow Ho Chi Minh’s Thoughts and Morals” using pictures borrowed from the Ho Chi Minh Museum.

Earlier this year the Ministry of Culture and Information provided VND200 million to do up the memorial, which has been visited by over 230,000 locals and foreigners to date.
