According to Nghe An provincial People’s Committee, it will showcase 154 documents, publications, items, and maps collected by domestic and foreign researchers, including transcribed versions of the original Chinese-Vietnamese and French documents published by Vietnamese feudal regimes, the French government in Indochina, and several western publications from the 17th to the 20th century.

In addition, documents of the Nguyen dynasty regarding Vietnam’s exploitation, management, establishment, and exercise of its sovereignty over Hoang Sa and Truong Sa will also be displayed.

The exhibition will also feature maps certifying that the Hoang Sa and Truong Sa archipelagoes belong to Vietnam, published by Western nations since the 17th century./.
