In his address, Nguyen Duc Chung, Chairman of the Ha Noi municipal People’s Committee recalled the resounding victory by King Quang Trung 230 years ago in the then Thang Long capital (now Ha Noi).

Since then, the 5th day of the first lunar month has become the traditional day marking the historic victory which has also gone down in Vietnamese history as an immortal and epic struggle for national construction and defense.

Dong Da mound in Ha Hoi’s inner district of the same name, where corpses of Qing invaders were buried, stands as a symbol of the long-lasting tradition of patriotism of the Vietnamese people, and the Prime Minister issued a decision on December 4, 2018, recognizing it as a special national relic.

At the ceremony, PM Phuc handed a certificate on this effect to representatives of the city and the district./.
