The event was attended by National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung; Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Central Committee (CPVCC) and Head of the CPVCC Commission for Mass Mobilisation Ha Thi Khiet; representatives from ministries and sectors, Vietnamese heroic mothers and citizens of the province.
In his speech at the ceremony, Deputy Secretary of the Tuyen Quang provincial Party Committee and Chairman of provincial People's Committee, Chau Van Lam, said, during the 180 years of its development, Tuyen Quang has witnessed and experienced many events of national historical significance. People of the province joined the entire population to fight against foreign invaders. In the August 1945 Revolution, Tuyen Quang was the capital of the liberated area, where the Party Central Committee and President Ho Chi Minh lived, worked and led the general uprising to seize power and create the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. In the resistance war against the French colonialists, Tuyen Quang was also the headquarters of the Party Central Committee, the National Assembly, the Government, and 13 out of 14 ministries and agencies. The provincial Party Committee and people have always maintained the strength of the united bloc of various ethnic groups to fulfill socio-economic development targets during the process of national renewal.

He also reminded the province to ensure social security, reduce poverty, care for people’s health, develop education and training, protect the environment, and preserve its cultural heritage.
On the occasion, NA Chairman Hung presented Tuyen Quang province the Ho Chi Minh Order, the highest honour from the Party and State, for the second time in recognition of its outstanding achievements in the national revolution.
