The event also introduced documents in Han and Nom (Chinese characters and ancient Vietnamese scripts) as well as Vietnamese and French issued by feudal dynasties as well as French administration in Indochina between the 17th and 20th centuries, which proved the process of setting up, implementation and protecting of Vietnam’s sovereignty over the archipelagoes.
At the same time, various versions of administrative documents issued between 1954-1975 highlighting the continuous exercise and safeguarding of the archipelagoes are also on display.
