The Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union Central Committee (HCYUCC) and the Association of Vietnamese Students (CAVS) on March 21 started work on building a flagpole at the Tran outpost island in Co To district, northern Quang Ninh province.
The 15-m high pole is being built at the highest point of the island (188 meters high from the sea level).
It is one of the seven flagpoles that the youth organisations have been building at the national outpost islands, namely Bach Long Vy (northern port city of Hai Phong), Cu Lao Xanh (central Binh Dinh province), Phu Quy (central Binh Thuan province), Con Son (southern Ba Ria-Vung Tau province), Tho Chu (southern Kien Giang province), and Hon Lao (central Quang Binh province).
The programme is jointly carried out by the HCYUCC, the CAVS, and the Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam (BIDV) with an aim to raise sense of responsibility among the youths for safeguarding the national seas and islands sovereignty.
The flagpole at Tran island will be completed on May 19 on time for the 125 th birthday anniversary of late President Ho Chi Minh.-VNA
