Tra Vinh building Ho Chi Minh Trail by Sea monument

The Mekong Delta province of Tra Vinh is constructing a monument titled Ho Chi Minh Trail by Sea, located at a wharf where southern liberation troops received secret supply shipments during the Vietnam War.

The project is situated in Con Trung Hamlet, Truong Long Hoa Commune, Duyen Hai District.

Once finished, the VND1.4 billion venture will be replete with statues and a museum covering an area of 8,000 square meters.

The project is expected to finish this month to commemorate the 65th anniversary of the Vietnamese People’s Army.

The secret supply route on the East Sea was first used on October 23, 1959.
