On December 17, the body of Tran Chuong had been recovered while authorities were able to save 34 year old Nguyen Quan.

The accident was caused by giant waves and fierce winds lashing the area as a northerly cold front has affected the country for the last few days. The boat was on its way to Chan May Port when it was overwhelmed by the ferocious waves.

The local army personnel and authorities have mobilized 35 soldiers to continue search for the remaining two fishermen.

Phu Loc District has assisted each of the five fishermen’s families with VND3 million.

In the northern province of Hai Phong, 23 members on board the Phu Tan Vessel have gone missing for three days and have as yet not been found. Rescue forces are continuing the search operations.

QĐND – Friday, March 26, 2010, 20:44 (GMT+7)

The central province of Thua Thien-Hue organised a solemn meeting on March 26 to celebrate 35 years of its liberation.

Minister of National Defence Phung Quang Thanh, National Assembly Vice Chairman Uong Chu Luu, Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai, and the former Party General Secretary, Le Kha Phieu joined more than 10,000 local officials, soldiers and people at the event.

Addressing the ceremony, Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Ngoc Thien said Thua Thien-Hue was one of the South’s pioneers in the resistance war against US aggressors.

During the struggle for national independence and reunification, the province saw more than 18,000 combatants lay down their lives, 11,000 others suffer from injuries, over 6,000 officials and Party members imprisoned and tens of thousands of people killed, Thien said.

Thirty-five years after its liberation, Thua Thien-Hue has recorded rapid and comprehensive economic growth, he said, citing its budget collection of 2.7 trillion VND and per capita GDP of over 1,000 USD in 2009.

Thua Thien-Hue is now striving to become a centrally-run city within the next few years, the chairman stressed.

On behalf of Party and State leaders, Minister Thanh praised contributions made by Thua Thien-Hue’s Party organisation, soldiers and people in the anti-US resistance war.

The minister urged the province to uphold the tradition of solidarity to reap greater achievements in economy, security and national defence, making it an economic, cultural, educational and health centre of the whole country.
