NDO - An international colloquium entitled “Global Ho Chi Minh” has recently been organised in New York City, the US. The event is part of a new partnership between Columbia University and the University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Hanoi.

The colloquium, which was held on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the implementation of President Ho Chi Minh’s Testament, drew the attention of many international scholars and students as well as those who spent years studying and researching about Ho Chi Minh.

This is an opportunity for scholars to share their new multi-lingual and multi-archival research and past works on the life, career, and legacy of Ho Chi Minh, as well as his role in the formation of modern Vietnam, and to explore the country’s position in world affairs in the 20th Century.

The colloquium focused on three main topics: Ho and the Imperial Powers; Ho in the Global Cold War, 1945-1969; and Ho’s Global Legacy.

The discussions underlined Ho Chi Minh’s image not only as a hero of national liberation, but also as a bridge between Vietnam and the world, with his personality having a global influence.
