In the article, journalist Moisés Pérez Mok, Head of Prensa Latina's permanent agency in Hanoi, expressed his impression of the atmosphere celebrating the country's reunification day.

Huge posters and many cultural activities were held to commemorate the event 49 years ago, while conveying its historical values and the spirit of national solidarity to the younger generation.

Journalist Moisés Pérez Mok said this is also an opportunity to remember the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the Fatherland. Leaders of the Party and State of Vietnam visited the families of war invalids, martyrs and people with meritorious services to the Revolution on this important holiday.

Prensa Latina affirmed that the Victory on April 30, 1975 was a clear testament to the indomitable spirit of the Vietnamese people in the fight against foreign invaders.

The article emphasized that this event ended the rule of imperialism and feudalism in Vietnam, completed the people's national democratic revolution, unified the country and opened a new era in Vietnam. The whole country began to move toward socialism together.

According to the Latin American News Agency, the April 30, 1975 Victory goes down as one of the most outstanding in the history of the Vietnamese nation, a brilliant symbol of the victory of revolutionary heroism and human intelligence, and is marked in world history as a great victory of the 20th Century.

Prensa Latina cited comments from international traditions highlighting Vietnam’s remarkable economic achievements after unification. The Latin American news agency clearly pointed out that the foundation of those advances is the Doi Moi process approved by the 6th National Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam. Innovation has helped Vietnam gradually amend the country's economic structure and promote industrialization and modernization.

As of 2019, Vietnam ranked 8th in the world and 2nd in Southeast Asia in terms of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth and was the 22nd largest economy in the world in terms of exports. Vietnam's goal by 2026 is to have the second largest GDP in the region after Indonesia and by the end of 2029 to become the 20th largest economy in the world./.
