Ho Chi Minh Thought (Vietnamese: Tư tưởng Hồ Chí Minh “Thoughts of Ho Chi Minh”) is the political philosophy of the Vietnamese Communist Party (VCP). Since 1991, it has appeared coequally with Marxism-Leninism as integral to the curriculum of fundamental instruction for civil servants in Vietnam.[1][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.
