A programme was held in the southern province of Binh Duong on May 27 to raise awareness of the country’s sovereignty over its sea and islands for employees working in businesses in the locality.

The event was organised by the Binh Duong Water Supply and Drainage and Environment company in conjunction with the provincial chapter of the Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) and the Trade Union. Over 200 youths who work in the province volunteered throughout the day.

Speaking at the event, Huynh Van Nhi, Chairman of Binh Duong’s VFF, praised the efforts of businesses in the province in overcoming difficulties to stabilise production activities following the recent disturbances caused by anti-China protests.

He said enterprises operating in the province and across the country need to join hands in assisting fishermen to maintain their activities in fishing grounds in the country’s waters.-VNA
