The delegation expressed respect to the heroic spirit of President Ho Chi Minh - the great leader of the Vietnamese people, who devoted his life to the cause of national liberation of the Vietnamese people, and strived tirelessly for peace and progress in the world. President Ho Chi Minh was honored by UNESCO as a national liberation hero and outstanding cultural celebrity.

During the working program in Nghe An, former Chilean President Michelle Bachelet will visit Nghe An Museum, Vietnam – Singapore Industrial Park (VSIP), and WHA Industrial Zone 1, to promote cooperation between localities and people-to-people exchange between the two countries.

Earlier, during her two presidential terms (2006-1010 and 2014-2018), Ms Michelle Bachelet officially visited and attended APEC in Vietnam in 2006 and 2017. During these visits, she signed many agreements to further promote multifaceted cooperation between the two countries.

In 2006, she had a chance to meet with General Vo Nguyen Giap who presented her 2 books. One book has been translated into Spanish titled “Unforgettable Years” and the second book is printed in Vietnamese titled “Ho Chi Minh Thought and the Revolutionary Road”. During her second visit to Vietnam, she laid a wreath at the Monument of Heroes and Martyrs, paid homage to President Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, and visited Uncle Ho's house on stilts./.
