The information was revealed at a working session between Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and the management board of the mausoleum in the capital on December 3.

Major General Nguyen Van Cuong, head of the mausoleum’s management board, reported that the crucial task of this year is to upgrade a number of important facilities in service of the best preservation of the body of late President Ho Chi Minh.

As of November 2017, more than 2.2 million people visited the mausoleum, including over 504,000 foreigners, a year-on-year rise of 11-12%, he cited.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc appreciated the management board’s efforts to quickly accomplish the upgrade.

He requested the board to build measures to ensure absolute safety and security for the mausoleum and agencies in the centre of Ba Dinh political area.

The PM asked the Hanoi People’s Committee to soon improve the road from Thang Long boulevard to K9 historical relic site to attract more visitors.

Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum is an important landmark of Hanoi capital city and stands integrated to the political and social history of Vietnam. After his death on September 2, 1969, Ho Chi Minh was embalmed and put for view in this granite mausoleum. The mausoleum, modelled after Lenin's tomb in Moscow, was built in two years, from 1973 to 1975, with materials donated by people from all over the country.
