Speaking at the ceremony, the ambassador highlighted the key milestones in President Ho Chi Minh’s revolutionary career as well as his enormous dedications to the country and the liberation movements in Africa and around the world.

He called on the Vietnamese community to make unceasing efforts to study and follow the President’s moral example and contribute to the Vietnam - Mozambique relations.

Mr. Hoang also informed the expatriates about the situation in the homeland, the success of the 13th National Party Congress, and the preparations for the elections of deputies to the 15th National Assembly and all-level People’s Councils on May 23.

Amid the complex COVID-19 developments in Mozambique, Hoang appealed to the Vietnamese community to adopt the disease prevention and control measures regulated by local authorities while staying united to weather difficulties.

A ceremony to lay flowers was also held on Ho Chi Minh Avenue to pay tribute to the leader.

In 1977, Samora Machel, the first president of the People’s Republic of Mozambique, now the Republic of Mozambique, named an over-1km-long road in Maputo capital Ho Chi Minh to express the Mozambican people’s respect and admiration for the Vietnamese leader./.
