At the exhibition

On display are nearly 300 articles and documents related to Hoang Sa. These are typical articles in the press collection “Hoang Sa (Paracel)-Truong Sa (Spratly) belong to Vietnam”, as well as news and reports on China’s illegal placement of Haiyang Shiyou-981 oil rig in the exclusive economic zone and continental shelf of Vietnam in 2014, articles on Hoang Sa written by press agencies in Da Nang city, and photos of Vietnam’s seas and islands taken by reporters nationwide.

The nine-day exhibition aimed to popularize and confirm Vietnam’s sovereignty over the Hoang Sa archipelago and acknowledge active contributions of journalists and reporters to the struggle for national sovereignty over the sea and islands.

It also targeted to raise the public’s awareness of the process of Vietnam’s establishment and exercise of sovereignty over the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagos, of the Party’s and State’s guidelines and policies on defending national sovereignty over its seas and islands, as well as of the nation’s optimism about and resilience towards the national sacred sovereignty.

The exhibition is also seen as a call for people nationwide, especially youths, to further join hands to protect the national sovereignty over its seas and islands and raise responsibilities of the rear to the front.
