On behalf of the Hanoi Party Committee, People’s Committee and people, Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Nguyen Duc Chung recalled the resounding victory by King Quang Trung 230 years ago in the then Thang Long capital (now Hanoi).

Dong Da mound in Hanoi’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 this year’s ceremony, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc handed a certificate on this effect to representatives of the city and the district.
A day earlier, Permanent Deputy Prime Minister Truong Hoa Binh also offered incense in commemoration of King Quang Trung and his soldiers in the central province of Binh Dinh, which is the cradle of the movement against the Qing invaders.
