So when he returned to the mainland to continue his studies, he immediately began a project called "Vegetable gardens for islands" to improve the lives of islanders and soldiers stationed there.  Dang Ngoc Vu was stationed on Truong Sa Archipelago in 2013. During that time the islands often faced imminent combat and entire areas, including vegetable gardens, had to be leveled. In their shelter-pits, the soldiers lived on canned food, bean sprouts, and young leaves. Vu and his comrades longed for chilies, eggplants, and vegetables to enliven their diets. Vu says he nurtured a plan to one day build a modern vegetable garden for his mates, adding: “There was a serious shortage of vegetables that caused many of my comrades to be hospitalized. I became determined to do something for the islands, to at least make a vegetable garden for the soldiers.” In February, 2015, Vu returned to the mainland to study at the Ho Chi Minh City Industry and Trade College. He and members of the school's Science and Technology Club began to research and design models for high-tech "Vegetable gardens for islands". A pilot project on Tho Chu Island in Kien Giang Province, said Vu, takes advantage of local natural light and modern hydroponic technology to maximize vegetable yields while conserving energy, water, and human effort. The system will save the army and islanders thousands of US dollars annually in vegetable costs. An advocate of safe agriculture,…... [read more]

However, the coordination remains inadequate, according to a political report presented at the 11th National Party Congress. Therefore, the Communist Party of Vietnam worked out important directions to ensure both marine-based economic growth and national defence and security until 2020. In the document of its 11th National Congress, the Party focused on developing the marine economy to fully tap Vietnam’s potential. Vietnam has a coastline of 3,260 km and sovereignty and jurisdiction over a total area of about 1 million square kilometres of the sea includinginternal waters, territorial waters, the contiguous zone, exclusive economic zones and its continental shelf. It has 3,000 islands of various sizes, 12 archipelagoes, as well as the Truong Sa (Spratly) and Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelagos. All the sea and islands are in 125 coastal districts in 28 provinces, including 12 island districts. Of the 1,656 km2 of Vietnam’s islands and archipelagos, 66 islands are inhabited with a total population of more than 155,000 people. All the islands and archipelagoes are an inseparable part of the country that plays a very important role in national defence and construction. Developing the marine-based economy The Party and State have attached great importance to the sea and islands and are determined to turn Vietnam into a strong marine-based country, considering it a strategic target for national defence and construction. In the 1990-1992 period, Vietnam launched an East Sea – Islands programme, followed by the Party Politburo’s policies on sea-based economic development and the struggle to protect the country’s sovereignty…...

Old map proves China’s claims are worthless All maps drawn by Chinese people before 1909 indicate that the southernmost point of China is Hainan Island. Meanwhile, Vietnamese made maps and European navigation charts since the 17th century have depicted that the Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) Archipelagos belong to Vietnam. According to historian Duong Trung Quoc, China’s oldest map in contemporary times, “Hoang trieu truc tinh dia du toan do” (an administrative map of provincial boundaries) published in 1904, reflects China’s perception of its territory during the Qing Dynasty. This shows that by the early 20th century, the Chinese feudal administration had not yet intended to claim sovereignty over the two archipelagos of Vietnam. “This is important significant evidence and supplements the historical evidence proving Vietnam’s sovereignty over the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa Archipelagos,” Quoc said. In fact, China only started claiming Hoang Sa from 1909 and Truong Sa from 1935 while Vietnam held much earlier evidence of its sovereignty in the East Sea, at least from the 17th century. According to East Sea researcher Nguyen Hong Thao, the evidence Vietnam has collected is overwhelming. They are recorded in royal historical works compiled by the Office of National History and printed during the Nguyen Dynasty. They include “Dai Nam thuc luc chinh bien” (The Main Part of The Chronicles of Dai Nam, 1848), “Kham Dinh Dai Nam hoi dien su le” (The Dai Nam Administrative Records, 1843-1851), “Dai Nam nhat thong chi” (The Geography of the Unified…...

The statement was made by spokesman Luong Thanh Nghi at the Foreign Ministry’s regular press briefing in Hanoi on October 11. In reply to media questions about Vietnam’s response to China’s recent acts, Nghi said China has violated Vietnam’s sovereignty over the Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos. Following a series of illegal activities of building and developing the so-called “Sansha city”, China held a flag raising ceremony on October 1 to mark its National Day on Phu Lam island in the Hoang Sa archipelago. On October 3, the Chinese navy’s Nanhai Fleet held an exercise in the waters of the Hoang Sa archipelago and five days later, China set up a meteorological station of the so-called Sansha city. Earlier, on September 23, the Chinese press reported that China will deploy unmanned aircraft to intensify the surveillance of the waters, including the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagos. The Chinese side’s above mentioned acts seriously violated Vietnam’s sovereignty over the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagos, international law and the agreement on basic principles guiding the settlement of sea-related issues between Vietnam and China signed in October 2011, Nghi noted. They also ran counter to the spirit of the Declaration on Conduct of the Parties in the East Sea (DOC) signed between ASEAN and China in 2002, thus further complicating the East Sea situation. These acts are totally null and void, he affirmed. At the press briefing on the same day, in response to a question on a…... [read more]
