Viet Nam gained independence following the glorious victory of August 1945 Revolution which is not only a critical recent historical milestone, but also a great turning point in the country’s thousands of years of national construction and defense.
The spirit of the August Revolution has now been brought to the forefront in the battle against poverty, backwardness and slow development. Viet Nam has made tremendous strides over the past years during its process of national Renovation, creating a driving force to take the nation into a new period of development./.
