Ho Chi Minh Thought (Vietnamese: Tư tưởng Hồ Chí Minh; literally "Thoughts of Ho Chi Minh") is the political philosophy of the Communist Party of Vietnam. Since 1991, the contents of Ho Chi Minh's thought were formed and developed in association with the periods of Ho Chi Minh's activities in the revolutionary movement of Vietnam and internationally as integral to the curriculum of fundamental instruction for civil servants in Vietnam.[1]

At the beginning and the middle of the 20th century, Ho Chi Minh thought was the crystallization of Vietnamese culture, French revolutionary ideas, liberal ideas, Marxist–Leninist communist ideals and Ho Chi Minh's personal qualities. Ho Chi Minh Thought considered the pesantry to be the most popular force of the nationalist movement, which was the basis for the struggle for national liberation, with the blood of the working class, oppressed by the colonialists, France and the minions (feudal and landlords), ready to stand up with workers in the developing proletarian revolution.

In the Party's Revolutionary Strategy, Ho Chi Minh wrote: "The Party must recruit the majority of the peasants and rely on the poor peasants to make a revolutionary land, to build the landlords and feudal lords. The workers and the peasants (the public, the cooperative) from being under the power and influence of the national capitalists, the Party must communicate with the capitalist, intellectual, middle-class".[2]


Ho Chi Minh Thought is an ideology that adapts Marxism–Leninism to the specific social, political and economic conditions of the Vietnamese people by Ho Chi Minh, the leader of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam.

The tenets of Ho Chi Minh Thought are primarily constructed from the political statements and attitudes of Ho Chi Minh. Ho Chi Minh Thought has been identified as a legitimate ideology of the Communist Party of Vietnam alongside Marxism–Leninism, formally launched from the party's Seventh Party Congress.

The Communist Party, the Vietnam state and the legitimate views of Vietnam today agree that Ho Chi Minh Thought is a creative use of Marxism–Leninism in Vietnam's context, considering Ho Chi Minh's thought has become a valuable spiritual asset of the Communist Party and the people of Vietnam. The Communist Party of Vietnam identified Marxism–Leninism and Ho Chi Minh's thought as the guideline for all actions and victories of the Vietnamese revolution. Vietnamese schools always promote learning and follow Ho Chi Minh Thought in all walks of life.
