The annual event aspires to instil a reading habit in the nation’s youth, said a MIC spokesperson in making the announcement.

A highlight of this year’s event is the introduction of an ‘online book’ zone where electronic books can be purchased and traded.

The book fair will also see the participation of domestic and foreign publishing houses along with a wide array of seminars, conferences, and dialogues with authors and readers.

According to a recent report by the MIC, an estimated 26% of Vietnamese people do not read books, while 44% read books occasionally and only 30% read books on a regular basis.
