HA NOI (VNS) — Vung Tau City in the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau has become the first city in the country to name a highway after General Vo Nguyen Giap.

The name was given to Highway 51, which connects the February 3 Road's roundabout with the Co May Bridge in the city.

Other cities and provinces have been vetting suitable roads to name after the revered Vo Nguyen Giap. HCM City and Ha Noi have had plans to name their streets after the deceased General, with the final decision to be given by the end of this year.

General Vo Nguyen Giap, who was a former Politburo member, Secretary of the Central Military Commission, Defence Minister and Commander in Chief of the Viet Nam People's Army, passed away on October 4 at the age of 103. —VNS
