Prime Minister presents meaningful gifts to Truong Sa

QĐND – Thursday, June 10, 2010, 20:59 (GMT+7)

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has decided to present meaningful gifts to the Truong Sa Islands.

In his visit to Myanmar, from April 2nd to 4th, the Prime Minister was presented with two jade Buddhas from the World Buddhist Shangha and a Buddha’s sarira (sariras are relics , though it usually refers to a kind of pearl or crystal – like bead – shaped objects that are purportedly found among the cremated  ashes of Buddhist spiritual masters) from the Council of Shwedagon Pagoda.

The Prime Minister then decided to represent these gifts to Vietnam Buddhist Shangha.

However, the Prime Minister recommended that these two jade Buddhas should be placed at Song Tu Tay and Truong Sa Lon Islands in Truong Sa Archipelago, said Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Head of the Governmental Office yesterday.

“These are meaningful gifts from the World Buddhist Shangha and Myanmar’s Shwedagon Pagoda. The two jade Buddhas, which will be placed in the islands in Truong Sa, are also very meaningful to confirm Vietnam’s sovereignty on the area,” Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc said.

According to Mr. Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung also asked Vietnam Buddhist Shangha to help extend his thanks to the World Buddhist Shangha.

Newspaper representatives worked with the province Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.

According to the department’s plan, the temple is expected to be built at the northern end of Long Dai Bridge, next to the Long Dai Ferry along Road 15, which belonged to the Truong Son Road system and was one of the fiercest places during the war against the US invaders.

The Long Dai Ferry was also the place where 31 volunteer youths died from US bombs.

The commemorative temple is an important item in the Long Dai Ferry Historical Relic, which is to include a temple, monument, and bell-tower to be financed by donations from various benefactors.

Construction of the commemorative temple alone is estimated to cost VND10 billion (US$53,000), financed by the Bank for Foreign Trade of Vietnam (Vietcombank) through Nghia Tinh Truong Son program of SGGP.

It is expected that the work will break ground on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the August Revolution and National Day, September 2.

The same day, SGGP representatives also met with leading military personnel of Ha Tinh and Quang Binh provinces about spending VND1 billion, financed by Phong Phu Textile Company, to build 30 houses of gratitude for war invalids and martyrs’ families and offer scholarships for local students.

Accordingly, 30 houses, worth VND30 million each, will be built in the Ha Tinh, Quang Binh and Quang Tri provinces. The remaining money will be used to grant 100 scholarships for students in Nghe An Province.

Leading military personnel of the Ha Tinh and Quang Binh provinces have received the funds and will build the houses this June.

Life prospers on Truong Sa archipelago

Life prospers on Truong Sa archipelago

QĐND – Thursday, May 06, 2010, 21:37 (GMT+7)

When taking a trip to the town of Truong Sa Lon in the Truong Sa (Spratly) island district of the southern coastal province of Khanh Hoa archipelago, visitors are often surprised to see that life here is very similar to any other town in the country.

Nobody can imagine that they are hundreds of nautical miles away from the mainland when seeing houses with red-tiled roofs amid the orchards and trees, children on their way to school or women visiting pagodas on the fifteenth day of the lunar month.

Truong Dinh Phuong, a resident in Truong Sa Lon (Big Truong Sa) town, told a Vietnam News Agency reporter that his family lacks nothing, although the facilities on the island are somewhat limited compared to the mainland.

Built on a plot of 200sq.m, Phuong and his wife’s red-roofed and yellow-walled house is equipped with a wind and solar power system. Like other families on the island, Phuong’s family can use any electrical appliance that they choose.

These days the distance between the mainland and Truong Sa has been further shortened, as the Viettel mobile phone network now covers Truong Sa archipelago.

32-year-old resident Dang Thanh Chuong said that people on the island are very friendly and supportive. Fishermen donate fish to soldiers after bumper catches and soldiers give back things that they grow or raise such as fruit, vegetables, pigs and chickens, he added.

His wife and daughter who live with him on the island said that contributing to the development of Truong Sa makes them happy as they feel that they are fulfilling their responsibility to the motherland.

These are our waters, where we do our fishing and the island is our second fatherland where my entire family belongs,” said another resident Vo Van Truong.

Apart from the soldiers who defend the country’s territorial waters, local residents like Chuong and Phuong, as well as other young leaders, including the Vice President of Truong Sa Lon town Nguyen Quoc Thien and President of the town’s Vietnam Fatherland Front Le Minh Canh are those who have contributed to the vitality of Truong Sa Lon, and as well as of the country’s islands as a whole.

Thirty-five years ago, after the glorious victories in Buon Me Thuot, Hue , Da Nang and Khanh Hoa, on the morning of April 14, 1975, the Vietnamese naval commandos landed to liberate the Song Tu Tay island.

This victory was followed by the liberation of the Son Ca island on April 25, the Sinh Ton island on April 28 and the whole Truong Sa islands on April 29.

Since its liberation, the Truong Sa islands have seen remarkable development with numerous economic cum defence works serving people’s life.

The house commemorating Late President Ho Chi Minh, the monuments of martyrs, the Capital Guest House, Truong Sa and Song Tu Tay pagodas have become public places for local people to hold cultural exchange activities.

Speaking at the ceremony, Sen. Lieut. Gen. Huan affirmed that the Truong Sa and Hoang Sa islands constitute an integral part of the Vietnamese territory. The liberation of the Truong Sa islands was of strategic significance, making an important contribution to the great victory of the nation.

He asked Truong Sa cadres and soldiers to continuously improve their knowledge and political spirit, strengthen the management and protection of sea and island sovereignty, actively overcome difficulties and speed up production and aquaculture, thus building Truong Sa into an island district rich in economics and strong in defence.
