Hau Giang Home Affairs Department


When the Temporary Government of Democratic Republic of Vietnam was set up on 28-8-1945 with 13 Ministries, the Ministry of Home Affairs played a very important role in the government structure under the leading of Minister Vo Nguyen Giap. The Ministry of Home Affairs has implemented a range of key duties such as building government systems, protecting the revolutionary authorities and these has significantly contributed to the Revolution of Vietnamese Party and the whole nation. The date 28-8-1945, therefore, has became a historic milestone of the establishment of Ministry of Home Affairs in the revolutionary government which was set up and leaded by The Vietnamese Communist Party and President Ho Chi Minh. In short, the formation of Ministry of Home Affairs was strongly inherent in the establishment and development of revolutionary government, and was associated with the history of struggle for freedom and country development throughout the historic times with different names including: Ministry of Home Affairs (1945), The Government’s Organization Committee (from 1973), The Government’s Personnel Organization Committee (from 1992) and currently the Ministry of Home Affairs (from August 2002).
