Communication project raises awareness on sea, island sovereignty
Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has recently approved a project to raise public awareness of safeguarding sovereignty and sustainable development of Vietnam’s seas and islands.


The project will be carried out in centrally-run cities and provinces, countries which are home to large communities of Vietnamese people and those with traditional friendly ties with Vietnam.

It aims to update Party guidelines and State laws on Vietnamese seas and islands via the mass media.

Besides domestic policies and laws, major contents include international laws, bilateral and multilateral cooperation agreements with countries and international organisations regarding seas and islands, historical and legal evidence affirming Vietnam’s sovereignty over Truong Sa (Spratly) and Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelagoes.

The project also hopes to popularise economic development in seas and islands, especially construction of coastal economic, industrial and processing zones, among others.-VNA
