Quang Tri: From DMZ to East–West Economic Corridor
The central province of Quang Tri was one of the most devastated localities during the war by thousands of tonnes of bombs and shells. Its Ben Hai River, located at the 17th parallel, used to be a part of a DMZ that separated the country during the American War in Vietnam. Now Quang Tri province is no longer a sign of separation of Vietnam but a link in the East-West Economic Corridor.
