The purpose of the event was raising awareness and responsibility among troops and local people to build and protect national sovereignty over seas and islands, as well as to enhance their determination to fulfill all assigned missions.
Division 9 of Army Corps 4 also organized a similar event previously: "Historical evidence of Vietnam's sovereignty over Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) Archipelagoes”. The exhibits included maps and documents dating back a few centuries and issued by Vietnamese feudal states, the French Government in Indochina, various Western nations, and others.
