"2016 Youth Journey for National Sea and Islands" program attracts 200 youngsters

Nearly 200 representatives of outstanding Vietnamese youth across the country departed from the Cat Lai port in Ho Chi Minh City on April 25 to sail to Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago.

The delegation will visit and offer gifts to local people and soldiers in a number of islands in Truong Sa archipelago and the platform DK1.

The "Youth Journey for National Sea and Islands" program has been organized by the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union and Vietnam's Naval High Command consecutively for 8 years.

The program aims to raise awareness of young people of the country's sovereignty over sea and islands, promote patriotism, and call people to join hands to protect the nation’s sacred sovereignty.
