Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc attended the annual festival held at Dong Da Cultural Park in Hanoi’s Dong Da District to mark the event and to celebrate the site receiving a certification recognising the Dong Da Mound as a special national historical relic.

Other Politburo members, including Secretary of the Standing Party Committee Tran Quoc Vuong and Ha Noi Party Committee Secretary Hoang Trung Hai, were at the festival along with representatives of central and city authorities and a large number of visitors.

The delegates offered incense and flowers to commemorate Emperor Quang Trung, who led the battle.

The Ngoc Hoi–Dong Da victory has been cited in Vietnamese history as an example of the Vietnamese’ undaunted spirit to fight against foreign invaders while symbolising the patriotism of the people.

Dong Da Mound reportedly witnessed many fierce battles between Emperor Quang Trung’s soldiers and Chinese invaders more than two centuries ago.

The festival is held to uphold the country’s cultural values, while educating younger generations about the traditions of patriotism and national pride.

This year’s festival also featured a series of music art performances and folk games re-enacting the victory.
