An art performance during the exhibition

This was an occasion to publish information, historical and legal evidence on Vietnam’s sovereignty over sea and islands as well as introducing the image of the country and Vietnamese people to the locals in Krong Bong as well as neighboring districts.

The information dissemination held important significance, affirming the country’s sovereignty over Truong Sa and Hoang Sa, while promoting solidarity and people’s awareness of protecting national sovereignty over sea and islands.
