Tet gifts to be delivered to staff of DK1 platforms, Con Dao island

Brigade 171 from the High Command of Naval Zone 2 will visit and deliver New Year (Tet) gifts to officers and soldiers on the DK1 platforms, on-duty ships and officials on Con Dao island district.

According to the High Command, two delegations from the High Command will set out on January 8, carrying over 400 gifts donated by individuals, organisations and businesses and nearly 35 tonnes of goods of various types such as necessities and food, along with materials to make traditional Tet dishes and flowers.

DK1 was a group of economic, scientific and technical service stations set up in 1989 on Vietnam's southern continental shelf. 

Over the past more than three decades, DK1 platforms have always stood firmly as a steel belt, not only helping develop marine economic activities but also contributing to safeguarding national sovereignty over seas and islands./.
