In the relationship with big countries, the Party and State of Vietnam prioritize the development of external economic relations, enlarging and diversifying the market, attracting more capital and technology for the industrialization and modernization and establishing interwoven interests with different partners. Balancing relationship with big countries is a consistent direction of the Party and State of Vietnam since the Cold War.

Building a “culture for people” basing on Ho Chi Minh's thought

Abstract: People create culture while culture is developed by people, for people and serving people. In the current new context, “the role of culture in human development has not been properly defined. There is a tendency to focus importance on only entertainment functions. There is a lack of great cultural, literary and artistic works which vividly reflect the scale of the renewal process and have positive effects on people”. Therefore, understanding Ho Chi Minh's basic views on culture is very necessary and urgent in order to build a socialist culture to meet the goals of “rich people; a powerful country; a fair, democratic and civilized society”.
