Roughly 200 young people from across the nation boarded a naval vessel at the Cat Lai Port in Ho Chi Minh City on April 25 to begin a 10-day field trip to the Truong Sa Island District and tour the DK1 oil rig.

Sáng 25/4, tại Lữ đoàn 125, Quân cảng Hải quân (quận 2, TPHCM), Trung ương Đoàn TNCS Hồ Chí Minh phối hợp Bộ tư lệnh Quân chủng Hải quân tổ chức buổi lễ tiễn đoàn Hành trình “Tuổi trẻ vì biển đảo quê hương” năm 2016 lên đường. 

 “This is the 8th time we have collaborated with the Vietnam Navy to organize such a trip,” said Nguyen Manh Dung, permanent secretary of the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee.“Our goal is to instil a sense of patriotism and love of country in the younger generation,” said Mr Dung. “The participants come from diverse walks of life, with many of them being budding businessmen, artists, doctors, and students.”



During the visit, the participants will present gifts and engage in cultural exchange activities with local officers, servicemen, and residents on the islands and at the DK1 oil rig. 

One of the participants, a young teacher named Thuy Tien said, “We want to express our warmest appreciation to the soldiers and local people there.” She noted the participants plan on planting trees during the visit as a symbol of the nation’s enduring strength.
