The bust installation ceremony taking place on September 1 is one of the final stages to prepare for the inauguration of the President Ho Chi Minh Monument in New Delhi, within the framework of the Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh's official visit to India, expected to take place at the end of 2021. This activity is to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and India.

This is the intersection between Kautilya Marg Road and Niti Marg Road - an important traffic axis in Chanakyapuri district. This place is considered to have a beautiful location, in the heart of New Delhi.

Speaking at the ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador to India Pham Sanh Chau emphasized that the President Ho Chi Minh bust in New Delhi is an eternal work and a testament to the deep relationship between the two nations, which was built on a long history of more than 2,000 years and cultivated through generations of leaders.
