AsemconnectVietnam - The Hanoi Book Festival 2018, themed “Books and Digital Technology”, opened at the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long on October 3.
Organisers said the festival features 120 booths from leading publishers and book distributors across Vietnam, such as the National Political Publishing House, the Information and Communications Publishing House, the Women’s Publishing House, Kim Dong Publishing House, and the Thai Ha, Nha Nam, Alpha, Dong A, and Dong Tay book companies.
Following the opening ceremony, a talk on the Fourth Industrial Revolution was held with the participation of many prestigious speakers.
Twenty-five foreign publishing companies from Germany, France, the US, the Republic of Korea, Japan, and ASEAN countries also came to the festival to exchange book copyrights.
At the event, visitors will have a chance to buy a range of books at discount prices and take part in various exchanges like discussions and book introductions. Notably, children are invited to join in the science and English quiz games.
A prominent feature of the event is that a domino chain with 3,000 books will be created on over 200sq.m of ground in the morning of October 6. It is expected to highlight the importance of books in developing science, technology and education and attract readers to the festival to encourage reading as a positive habit in the community.
The Hanoi Book Festival 2018 will last through until October 7.
