Following EU ambassadors, a group of English and French experts from April 27 to May 8 will study a 200-kilometer rampart, a type of defensive wall, which dates back over five centuries in central Vietnam.
According to the authorities of Quang Ngai Province, where the rampart is located, the foreign researchers will give expert advice on how to promote the archaeological site, known as Vietnam’s “great wall,” for the socioeconomic development in the province.

At the visit and international workshop last month, EU ambassadors said that the national relic is a unique architectural monument not only of Vietnam but also of the world.
