Tuyen Quang has special national historical site

The Kim Binh historical site in the northern province of Tuyen Quang received a certificate accrediting it as a special national relic site at a ceremony on Thursday.

Sixty-six years ago, the late President Ho Chi Minh selected Kim Binh commune, Chiem Hoa district to host the second National Party Congress, the first organised in Vietnam and the only one held outside the capital city of Hanoi. At the event, the congress made a range of major decisions, including the road map to a complete victory of the then revolution as well as the election of the Party Central Committee's members, with Ho Chi Minh as president and Truong Chinh as general secretary. Secretary of the Tuyen Quang Provincial Party Committee Chau Van Lam said:

"With more than 500 historical relics, Tuyen Quang is a revolutionary museum. Tuyen Quang province's Party Committee and people will preserve and promote the value of the historical relics including Tan Trao and Kim Binh special national historical relic sites. This is part of our efforts to attract visitors and boost the local tourism development."
