The Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism of Quang Ngai Province opened an exhibition entitled “Quang Ngai - Sea and Island Cultural Heritage” on August 29 to mark the August Revolution and the National Day (September 2).
On display are nearly 400 artifacts of Sa Huynh and Champa culture and others found in water off the coast of Quang Ngai, south central region, documents on sovereignty over Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos, over 100 photos showing the lives of local fishermen as well as the potential and strengths of a maritime-based economy in the province.
The five-day event also features a model of a merchant ship, a type popular from the mid 16th century to early 20th century, and a model of a fishing boat which was used by the local fishermen for fishing on sea and by naval forces to affirm sovereignty over Truong Sa and Hoang Sa archipelagos from the late 16th century to mid-19th century.
The event aims to step up the preservation and promotion of sea and island cultural heritage linked with orientation for socio-economic development in the locality, and raise public awareness of revolutionary tradition and sovereignty over territorial waters of Viet Nam, especially among young generations.
