The Thai edition is 507 pages long, and the Vietnamese is 387 pages. Its content revolves around Ho Chi Minh’s personality and his vision of international solidarity, particularly in building the foundation for the Vietnam-Thailand ties.

Speaking at the launching ceremony, a representative of Lampang authorities stressed that the late president was not only a great leader of Vietnam, but also a beloved figure in the hearts of Thai people.
