NDO – The Quang Ngai provincial People's Committee has announced plans for My Lai Park project and My Lai peace foundation.

Covering an area of 41 hectares, with many features such as the Square, Memorial, or cultural services area, My Lai Park will be built in Tinh Khe Commune, Son Tinh District, Quang Ngai Province, where 504 unarmed civilians were killed in March, 1968. The project has drawn a total investment capital of VND348 billion (US$15.31 million), provided by the My Lai Peace Foundation and the provincial budget.

The project aims to commemorate the victims of a bloody massacre committed 48 years ago and provide a public space to learn about the nation's history, patriotism, and peace.

In addition, the project is expected to become not only symbolic of Quang Ngai but also a mark of the central region in particular and the country in general.

The project will be completed in three to five years.
