Returning to the country in the spring of 1941 and directly leading the successful August Revolution, regaining independence and freedom for the people and the country after many nights of slavery, President Ho Chi Minh still has not been able to visit his hometown. It was not until June 1957, after more than 2 years of the historic victory of Dien Bien Phu making "golden history", that He returned to visit his homeland. In December 1961, the people of the hometown were only able to welcome Uncle Ho to visit his hometown for the second time. Returning to his homeland for the second time, he spent all his time visiting and talking with cadres and compatriots at Hoang Tru village, Vinh city; visiting Vinh Mechanical Factory; Nghe An Mountain Pedagogy School; Dong Hieu Farm; Vinh Thanh cooperative, etc. Every place He visited, He gave cadres and people a lot of affection, specific and practical advice. No one could have thought that it was also the last time He returned to his homeland, the last time his hometown could welcome Uncle Ho.
Returning to his hometown this time, Uncle Ho happily praised the Nghe An labor movement over the years, which has gained many great achievements in all aspects; everyone, every home, every industry has a lot of efforts and progress. Uncle Ho reminded the provincial Party Committee: "We must strengthen the leadership of the Party executive committees at all levels", "try harder to develop the economy, first of all, to develop agriculture to be self-sufficient in food and provide more raw materials for industry”. Uncle raised big problems about Nghe An's responsibility to the entire country: “The compatriots and cadres need to have the determination to strive to build our province into one of the best provinces in the North”, “making a worthy contribution to the cause of building socialism in the North, serving as a strong basis for the realization of peace and national reunification”.
Responding to the thoughtful sentiments, wishes and profound teachings of the day when he returned to his hometown, Nghe An Party Committee, army and people focused on implementing the Resolution on building party facilities in rural areas and improving agricultural cooperatives. As a result, food production since 1962 has increased by 4.8%, new economic zones were opened such as Nghia Dan, Tan Ky, Quy Hop, Quy Chau, etc. Many irrigation works, inter-commune and inter-district traffic were built and put into use; People enthusiastically emulated production labor, creating an important premise for the entire province to strive to complete the first five-year plan. During the years of resistance against the American imperialists, Nghe An Party Committee and People made many worthy contributions, with the spirit of "no shortage of rice, no shortage of soldiers", "All for the front line, all for defeating the American invaders”; together with the army and people of the entire country, made the historic Great Victory of Spring 1975, completely liberated the South, reunified the country, brought the country to socialism, and at the same time fulfilled the noble international duty.
During the years of working far away from the country, He always watched and grasped the specific situation in the country and Nghe - Tinh. In the chaos of national affairs, He was always deeply devoted to his homeland, as shown in 31 letters, 10 talks, and 3 telegrams. His sacred, deep affection, dedicated and thoughtful care for his homeland is an invaluable asset, a great source of encouragement and motivation for cadres, soldiers and people of Nghe An in all revolutionary stages.
To carry out the wishes and advice of the beloved Uncle Ho, over the years, with the attention of the Party and State, the sharing and help of localities and compatriots throughout the country, Nghe An Party Committee, army and people have constantly strived to rise up, achieving many important achievements in various fields. From a province with a low starting point, Nghe An has risen to stand in the group of localities with relatively fast economic growth in the entire country; built an increasingly solid socio-economic foundation in all aspects. In particular, in the past two years, under the influence and impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Nghe An Party Committee and People have highly promoted the spirit of solidarity, mobilized the strength of the entire political system, effectively controlled the pandemic, made efforts to maintain and restore socio-economic development. The economic growth rate in 2021 is estimated to increase by 6.2%. Culture - society has made great progress, National Defense - Security has been maintained. People's trust in the Party and State is increasingly being raised, creating a solid foundation for the province to continue developing quickly and comprehensively in the new period.
Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee Thai Thanh Quy said that the Party Committee and people of Nghe An ethnic groups promise Uncle that they will continue to make more efforts, further promote the historical, cultural and people traditions of Nghe An, arouse the will to be self-reliant and aspire to rise up; proactively and actively innovate to bring the province to sustainable development.
