Khanh Hoa (VNA) – A house to display objects related to Vietnam’s Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagoes will be built at the Nha Trang Institute of Oceanography in the central province of Khanh Hoa.

The architecture of the building was discussed at a meeting held by the provincial People’s Committee on August 2.

With an investment of 50 billion VND (2.25 million USD), the house will have a total area of 2,000sq.m, and exhibit around 20,000 documents and objects affirming Vietnam’s sovereignty over its sea and islands, especially the two archipelagoes.

Also at the Nha Trang Institute of Oceanography, an area to protect and preserve marine creatures collected from Truong Sa archipelago and other Vietnamese waters will be built in an existing tunnel, which is 80m long, 4.5m wide and 4.5m high.

The area aims to raise public awareness of the value of marine creature resources and serve research on and preservation of important marine creatures.

The project to build the house and the marine creature preservation area will be implemented over two years.-VNA
