Que Son district witnessed hundreds of battles during the resistance wars against the French colonists and American imperialists. Meanwhile, Hon Tau mountain range was the former base of leaders of Que Son district, Quang Nam and former Quang Da provinces as well as a number of the agencies of the Party Committee of the Region 5.
Thousands of officials, soldiers, guerrillas and people sacrificed here while fighting the enemies during the wars.
Construction of the Hon Tau-Deo Le Memorial Site was completed after 10 months at a total cost of over VND 10 billion (USD 423,639).
Addressing the ceremony, President Phuc underlined that the people of Vietnam will forever remember and be grateful for the great sacrifice by the heroes and martyrs, heroic Vietnamese mothers, and by many excellent, loyal and indomitable people of Que Son and all parts of the country who fought, sacrificed and stayed in the region.
He lauded the efforts of Que Son and the management board of the project in mobilizing resources for the construction of the site.
The inauguration of the site was a good chance to pay tribute to the elder generations and educate the youth on the glorious tradition of the region and the country.
On this occasion, President Phuc also hailed the performance of Da Nang city, Quang Nam province and Que Son district in boosting post-pandemic socio-economic recovery and development, and expressed his hope that the localities will continue to work hard to improve the living conditions of local people, especially war veterans, and complete all socio-economic targets.
He hoped that the Party Organization, administration and people of Que Son will join hands in taking care of the site, turning it into an attractive destination for domestic and foreign visitors and a place for patriotism education.
