The exhibition aims to raise public awareness of and sense of responsibility for protecting and affirming Vietnam's sovereignty over its sea and islands as well as in managing the exploitation and use of marine resources in an effective and sustainable way among younger generations and all walks of life.

This was also a chance to mobilize resources for the Blue “Truong Sa” program which was held by the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union and the Naval Command and raise fund for the application of science and technology in Truong Sa archipelago and DK1 platforms to ease difficulties for soldiers, including producing water filters to turn seawater into drinkable water.

More than 150 photos were showcased at the exhibition, showing the daily life of islanders and soldiers in Truong Sa archipelago and DK1 platforms, as well as voluntary activities of the youth.

Specially, a number of maps affirming the national sovereignty over the Truong Sa archipelago, along with numerous documents showing the country’s sovereignty over the Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelago were also on display.
