Nhan Dan - The memorial dedicated to the late Chairman of the Council of Ministers Pham Hung in Vinh Long province has been recognised as a national cultural and historical relic.

A ceremony was held by the Vinh Long authorities on June 10 to receive the official certification in the presence of Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan.

The memorial covers three hectares and is located in Long Phuoc commune, Long Ho district, Vinh Long province, the native land of comrade Pham Hung.

The site includes a protocol house, memorial house and exhibition hall. There are also three outside exhibits including the solitary confinement room where Pham Hung was imprisoned in Con Dao from 1934-1945; the house at the central base for South Vietnam in Tay Ninh province where he worked from 1967-1975; and his workroom at No.72 Phan Dinh Phung street, Hanoi.

Deputy PM Nhan also attended a song and dance performance in Vinh Long city on the same day to celebrate the 100th anniversary of comrade Pham Hung’s birthday (1912-2012).
