Socialism, in its primordial sense, is the needs and aspirations of the oppressed and exploited working classes. Socialism is also a path and a method of struggle for people to liberate themselves as well as liberate society from private ownership, oppression, and exploitation to build a new progressive, fair, and equal society. In Vietnam, the renovation since the 6th National Party Congress (1986) has achieved outstanding achievements which are historically meaningful. After more than 35 years of renovation, the Communist Party of Vietnam has made significant contributions to the practice of building socialism. In the process of building socialism, our Party and State have always been deeply aware of the position, roles, and strengths of culture. Today, Vietnamese culture is an advanced one imbued with national identity, reflecting the harmonious development between tradition and modernity, and between the economy, culture, and society. The 13th National Party Congress Resolution stated: "Develop people comprehensively and build an advanced Vietnamese culture imbued with national identity so that culture can truly become an internal strength and a driving force for national development and national defense" (Communist Party of Vietnam, 2021, volume 1, p.115-116). Therefore, in Vietnam’s socialist construction, culture is a strong force with immeasurable contributions.
