A dedicated communist, Hung joined the youth movement at the age of 16 and became one of the first members of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) in the South at 18. He served as a member of the Party Central Committee and the Politburo for several successive tenures. In June 1987, the National Assembly elected him as Chairman of the Council of Ministers.

At a memorial site dedicated to late PM Vo Van Kiet in Vung Liem district, the delegation expressed their determination to uphold the values of his ideology, ethics and legacy in the ongoing efforts to build a stronger and more prosperous country for all citizens.

Kiet started joining revolutionary activities at the age of 16 and held various key positions within the Party and Government. His ideas on promoting agricultural and goods production, presented at the sixth National Party Congress, significantly influenced the Doi Moi (renewal) policy, ushering in an era of robust and stable national development.
