The birth of the CPV on February 2, 1930 was a historical turning point of the Vietnamese revolution, ending the deadlocked and crisis period of guidelines and leadership organization, unifying revolutionary movements and forces throughout the country and affirming the growth of the Vietnamese working class strong enough to lead the revolution.
The Party led major revolutionary movements in 1930–1931 and 1936–1939, helping develop forces and mass movements, timely accumulate experience in organizational forms and fighting methods.
Late President Ho Chi Minh known as leader Nguyen Ai Quoc persisted in upholding the banner of the struggles for national liberation. The Party Conference in November 1939 chaired by General Secretary Nguyen Van Cu raised high the national flag under the ideology of Nguyen Ai Quoc.
On January 28, 1941, Nguyen Ai Quoc returned to the home country, working together with the Party Central Committee to lead revolutionary movements.
The Party Conference chaired by Nguyen Ai Quoc in May 1941 developed complete guidelines for national liberation resulting in the strong growth of national liberation movements across the country.
The Resolution adopted at the National Party Congress in Tan Trao on August 14- 16, 1945 brought the August Revolution a success.
For the first time in the history of the revolution of colonial nations, a new 15-year-old Party successfully led the revolution, assuming national power.
The August Revolution victory opened up a new era of the national history – the era of national independence and freedom of the people advancing to socialism.
The fledgling independence and revolutionary government had to combat enemies inside and outside the country, notably the second invasion of the French colonialists that started in the South (Sept 29, 1945).
The Party and President Ho Chi Minh worked out guidelines for the struggles for national independence and construction.
Experiencing more than nine years of the resistance war, the Vietnamese people led by President HCM and the Party won a decisive victory in the 1954 Dien Bien Phu battle. Coping with the anti-US resistance war, with persistence and courage, the entire population under the clear-sighted leadership of the CPV and President Ho Chi Minh, finally scored a complete victory in the 1975 Spring, totally liberating the South for national unification.
After 1975, the Party along with the whole nation embarked on building socialism. The Vietnamese revolution faced severe challenges amid opportunities while fighting wars of aggression in southwest and northern borders to firmly defend national independence and sovereignty.
Vietnamese soldiers performed their international obligation of saving Cambodian people from genocidal regime and helping them rebuild the nation.
To deal with weaknesses, economic crisis and subjective shortcomings, the Party decided to make theoretical thinking innovation from practical reality in order to outline a renewal strategy.
The sixth National Party Congress in December 1986 was of special importance as it worked out a renewal course of action with new perception to boost the construction of socialism.
The Party’s innovative principles towards the socialist path were based on the proper comprehension and application of the Marxism-Leninism and Ho Chi Minh’s thoughts to overcome negative effects of the crisis and collapse of the socialism model in the Soviet Union and Eastern European countries.
In June 1991, the Party put forth a platform for national construction in the period of transition to socialism.
The national economy was transformed into an oriented-socialist market economy under the State management.
The platform underscored the need to build a law-governed socialist state, promote industrialization, modernization, develop the knowledge-led economy, consider strategic development of science- technology and education and training to be the primary national policy, and preserve the Vietnamese culture deeply imbued with national identities.
The focus was also on ensuring social progress and justice and social welfare, devising national defence strategies in the new situation and carrying out the foreign policy of independence, self-reliance, peace, cooperation and development, and proactive international integration.
It also emphasised the necessity to intensify Party building and rectification, enhance leadership capacity and combative ability of the ruling party.
The 11th National Party Congress in 2011 supplemented and developed the 1991 Platform with a focus on boosting renovation and socialism building which recorded the tremendous comprehensive achievementsin terms of politics, economics, culture, social affairs, defence, security, external relations thus improving people’s living standards. Achievements made in 2014 left a profound impression.
During the 85-year revolutionary leadership process, the Party has summed up major valuable theoretical and practical lessons: Mastering the banner of national independence and socialism; The revolutionary cause is of the people, by the people and for the people; Constantly reinforcing national unity and Party solidarity; Combining national and international strengths.
The sound leadership of the Party is a crucial factor behind the victory of the Vietnamese revolution.
