“Cadres are the root of every work.

Therefore, training cadres is the rooted work of the Party”

 ----Ho Chi Minh----

Bearing it in mind, in 1949 President Ho Chi Minh and the Party Central Committee officially decided to establish the Nguyen Ai Quoc Central Party School with the mission to educate and train the cadres of the Party.

Since its initial foundation as a Party school under the name of Nguyen Ai Quoc, the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics has gone through its 68 years of development. As the subordinate organization of both the Central Executive Committee of the Vietnam Communist Party and the Government, subjected to ongoing and direct leadership of the Politburo and the Secretariat, Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics has made significant contribution to the Party’s cause of cadre training and theoretical research, the revolutionary cause of national liberation and the construction and protection of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. The development of the Academy has always been closely linked to the revolutionary cause of the Party and the People.

Over the years, consistent with the strategic goals and missions, the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics has always been in line with its strategic missions and goals, fulfilled the political tasks assigned by the Party, the State and the People. The Academy has always held onto and taken the lead in the political, ideological and theoretical fronts, thus protecting the core values of Marxism, Leninism, Ho Chi Minh Thought and guidelines of the Party. Generations of the Academy's graduates have well performed their job in different fields of politics, economy, society, culture, external affairs, security and national defence, etc. Many of them are holding key positions in the political system of the country.

In the 21st century - the century of globalization, information and knowledge sharing and intellectual integration has intensified the demand for training the leaders, managers and strategic cadres for the Party and State; central and local organizations and institutions. This is both the challenge and opportunity for the Academy to continue its mission in academic and scientific affairs, building on the history and traditions and contributing to the glorious cause of the Party and the nation.

With the strategic vision of "global thinking and national action” and having established relationship with more than 200 international partners including political parties, non-governmental organizations, universities and institutes, etc.., the Ho Chi Minh National Academy of Politics will continue to develop to be equivalent to its importance and political missions, enhancing its role and identity as the high-ranking Party school of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Vietnam. Through summerizing practical experiences, the Academy will focus on innovating and enhancing the quality of training and fostering to accomplish its political tasks, promoting scientific research to further enhance training quality and policy consultancy for the Party and the State.

The Academy would like to continue to receive the leadership and direction from the Politbureau and the Party Central Secretariat; the support, cooperation and assistance from all domestic and international organizations and individuals, who are willing to share the intellectual values and to contribute to the success of the Academy.
