The second national online book festival will run from April 17 to May 15 at book365.vn, while a virtual one on book copyright is slated for April 19-24.

The opening ceremony of Viet Nam Book Day will be held on April 18 in Ho Chi Minh City’s book street. It will feature pavilions of nearly 100 units and a panoply of activities will be arranged, such as seminars and book introduction events.

On the occasion, the Department of Publishing, Printing and Issuing and the Viet Nam National Library signed a cooperation programme on holding book exhibitions, dissemination of publishing activities, and information technology transfer for further access to e-publications.

Then Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc issued Decision No 284/QD-TTg on February 24, 2014, designating April 21 as Viet Nam Book Day, in order to encourage a reading culture among the public.
