Nhan Dan – An exhibition entitled ‘Hoang Sa, Truong Sa – Vietnam’s Sovereignty’ was held at the Vietnam Military History Museum in Hanoi on July 15, introducing over 300 photos and artifacts affirming Vietnam’s sovereignty over its archipelagoes and its struggle to defend sacred national sovereignty. 

The event aimed to honour the significant contributions made by the national sea and island protection forces and praise international peace lovers’ support of Vietnam, as well as to educate patriotism and national pride and to cheer Vietnamese soldiers and people to promote the national great unity power to safeguard the national sacred sovereignty.

On the same day, a similar 15-day exhibition entitled ‘Hoang Sa – Truong Sa Belong to Vietnam’ opened in the central province of Thua Thien–Hue with 400 items on display highlighting Vietnam’s sovereignty over its two archipelagoes, the power of the Vietnam People’s Navy, and national sea and island defence. On the occasion, Vietnam Post and Telecommunication Group (VNPT), Thua Thien–Hue branch, and the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism presented VND 55 million (US$2,585) to the Vietnam Coast Guard Zone 2.

The Da Nang municipal Union of Literature and Arts Associations launched a campaign to compose works of different styles on the theme of ‘Da Nang artists towards national sea and islands’ from July 15 to August 20. The most outstanding works will be selected and published to contribute to affirming Vietnam’s national sea and island sovereignty and resolutely condemning China’s infringement of the nation’s sea and island sovereignty.

The southern province of Tra Vinh has recently decided to spend over VND 690 million (US$32,430) from its budget to install 15 solar-powered communication systems on the vessels of 15 local fishing unions, aiming to make them feel reassured about going to sea.
