HA NOI (VNS)— A photo exhibition featuring Viet Nam's seas and islands will open tomorrow at the Exhibition Hall, 45 Trang Tien Street, Ha Noi.

Jointly organised by Viet Nam News Agency and Vietnamese – Russian oil and gas joint venture (Vietsovpetro), the display presents nearly 200 photos selected from tens of thousands of films and files in the organisers' archives.

President Truong Tan Sang surveys the sea level rise in the Cuu Long (Mekong) Delta province of Ben Tre.

The exhibition is classified into different sections, focusing on the landscape of seas and islands and documents demonstrating Viet Nam's sovereignty; State and Party leaders visiting seas and islands; the construction, development and protection of seas and islands through different periods of time; the growth of oil and gas industry; and sentiments of people nation-wide with people by the sea and on the islands.

With 3,260km of coastal line and over 1 million sq.km of sea area under its sovereignty and jurisdiction rights; two archipelagos Truong Sa (Spratly) and Hoang Sa (Paracel); thousands of islands big and small; the love for peace, friendship and co-operation; and the strong will to protect its sacred sovereignty, Viet Nam is steadily stepping forward in its development path.

The display will be on until November 26 .—VNS
