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.

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.
