The money is expected to build a high-speed combat vessel and produce a ceramic-made Vietnam administrative map on big Truong Sa island.
(VOV) – The Central Committee of Vietnam War Veterans’ Association has recently donated US$390.000 to Truong Sa fund.
Deputy Political Commissar of the Navy, Rear Admiral Nguyen Ngoc Tuong received the donation in Hanoi on December 18 and hailed it as a huge incentive for Truong Sa soldiers to overcome difficulties and fulfill tasks assigned by the Party, State and people.
The Association has launched a fund-raising campaign among its 2.6 million members to donate to Truong Sa fund.
The campaign helps war veterans get a better understanding about the importance and role of seas and islands in national construction and defence.
The Vietnam Veterans Business Association also took the opportunity to present US$9,500 to the fund.
