Speedboat presented to Truong Sa soldiers

Hai Phong, March 22 (VNA) – Bao Viet Group, on March 22, held a ceremony to hand over a speedboat worth 3.5 billion VND (1.5 million USD) to soldiers on Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelago.

Addressing the event, Chairman of the group’s Board of Directors Dao Dinh Thi expressed his hope that the Truong Sa CQ 01 boat will contribute to the protection of the national sea and island sovereignty.

Last year, Bao Viet Group spent about 4 billion VND (1.74 million USD) for the programmes to support people and soldiers on Truong Sa.

The Truong Sa speedboat is a model which has the ability to glide over coral reefs, helping ease the transportation and rescue missions to the archipelago.
