Speaking at the opening ceremony, Director of the Hai Phong Municipal Department of Information and Communications Luong Hai Au said: "This is the first time that the exhibition has been brought to high school level. Notably, the system of maps, materials and artifacts has been digitized on the basis of integrated 3D virtual reality technology so that viewers will have the most intuitive and vivid access".
Held at Ngo Quyen High School, the exhibition showcases more than 80 maps, documents and photos testifying to Vietnam’s sovereignty over the two archipelagos. It also features video clips presenting the system of this historical and legal evidence.
This exhibition is an important dissemination activity, helping to improve the public’s access to historical and legal evidence proving the country’s undeniable sovereignty over Hoang Sa and Truong Sa, Mr. Au said.
These proofs once again affirm that Vietnamese people have practiced their sovereign right over the archipelagos for a long time, he said, adding that they also refute some countries’ distorting arguments and groundless sovereignty claims to Hoang Sa, Truong Sa and other areas of Vietnam in the East Sea.
The official added the display also looks to improve public awareness, especially among students, of the safeguarding of the Fatherland’s maritime sovereignty; enhance people’s trust in the evidence of Vietnam’s sovereignty over Hoang Sa and Truong Sa; and encourage joint efforts to protest against wrong information and hostile viewpoints about the country’s maritime sovereignty.
