The call to read books came in response to the life-long learning week held in October every year.

MOIT Deputy Minister Nguyen Huu Do said that in recent years, the life-long learning week has exerted a far-reaching impact with many individuals and social organisations making donations to open libraries, helping to nurture a reading culture in Vietnam.

He emphasised that promoting a reading culture is a strategic issue of all countries to enhance public knowledge and improve human resources development.

The deputy minister added that reading is the foundation of a life-long learning mindset as well as a requirement of a modern society.

As part of the programme, an exhibition was held to showcase books relevant to the topic of ‘life-long learning’ with a view from publishing activities in the first half of the 20th century.

The exhibition introduces the legacy of a number of scholars, teachers, thinkers and social activities during the period, helping the public to learn more about the dawn of the publishing industry a century ago.
