Themed “Tram Ky uc” (memory station), the event was jointly organised by “Vong tay Viet-Nga” (Vietnam- Russia embrace) association and the Vietnamese Students’ Association in Russia, aiming at inspiring solidarity and patriotism among members of the overseas Vietnamese community.

A fund-raising event was also held to build schools for mountainous students at home.

The Vietnam Book and Reading Culture Day was first held in 2022 following a decision by the Prime Minister.

The day is expected to encourage and develop the reading movement among the community, contributing to building a learning society. In addition, it aims to honour readers, authors, publishers, printers, and libraries that strive to preserve, collect, and promote books.
