NDO – Exhibitions, featuring 84 photos covering the history and development of Ho Chi Minh City, opened at four locations across Ho Chi Minh City on April 26, as part of activities to celebrate the 43rd anniversary of the Liberation of the South and National Reunification (April 30), and International Labour Day (May 1).

The four locations include Nguyen Hue Pedestrian Street, Dong Khoi Street, the area in front of Chi Lang Park, and the Labour Cultural Palace, District No.1.

Organised on the theme of “Ho Chi Minh City – Aspiration for Rising Highly”, the exhibition offers visitors an overview on the heroic struggle of the army and people for the liberation of the South and for national reunification.

In addition, the exhibition also introduces images showing the strong growth of Ho Chi Minh City over the past four decades, demonstrating the vitality of the city in the trend of integration with the world.

At the exhibits on Dong Khoi Street and the Labour Cultural Palace, visitors will have a chance to contemplate more than 50 photos on the activeness and renovation of workers in Ho Chi Minh City, along with nearly 70 photos of the promotion of patriotism among the working class during the nation’s modernisation and industrialisation.

The photos have revived the patriotism movements of Sai Gon – Gia Dinh – Cho Lon workers during the war against the US under the leadership of the National Front for Liberation of the South, liberating the south and reunifying the country.

The exhibition runs until May 5.
