According to Etcetera Nguyen, the exhibition has attracted many overseas Vietnamese, not only because the theme of the exhibition is about Truong Sa Archipelago, but they also want to see with their own eyes videos and photos taken by representatives of overseas Vietnamese. Journalist Etcetera Nguyen also said that during the working session, the overseas Vietnamese journalists went to Truong Sa to collect information, and took photos and recorded video clips to show the overseas Vietnamese community. The exhibition also represents the emotional views of overseas Vietnamese from 20 nations during the first visit to the homeland.
According to the organizers, during the two first days of the exhibition (May 10-11), many people visited each day. Especially, overseas Vietnamese not only come to visit, but also to directly exchange and discuss issues of concern.
