NDO – The vitality of life on Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago is being showcased through 100 artistic photos taken by reporters and photographers, both amateur and professional, at an exhibition in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong from April 6 to 8.

The photos on display feature three basic themes, including “Vietnam’s sea and island sovereignty”, “Truong Sa’s vitality”, and “youth for national sea and islands”.

The exhibits faithfully reflect the lives of the Vietnamese naval soldiers and people on the islands, while depicting the beauty of Truong Sa’s waters and national landscapes.

Together with the artistic photos, the exhibition is also showcasing 33 national flags transferred from 33 islands, 15 national flags from 15 DK1 platforms in the southern continental shelf, and four national flags from the ships performing duties in the Vietnamese sea, alongside the woodblocks from the Nguyen Dynasty which were used to print publications on Truong Sa.

The event, part of a series of exhibitions held at six venues in Hanoi, Hung Yen province and Lam Dong from March 9 to April 22, aims to raise public awareness and a sense of responsibility in younger generations and all social strata in protecting and affirming Vietnam's sovereignty over its sea and islands, as well as in managing the exploitation and use of marine resources in an effective and sustainable manner.
