HÀ NỘI — Representatives from Hà Nội will be showcasing books on history, culture and performing arts about the capital city and Việt Nam at the 2018 Frankfurt Book Fair in October this year.
The event aims to promote and introduce the capital’s cultural and tourist products to the Vietnamese community in Germany and the international community at large, contributing to the development of the city’s tourism industry.
"The 2018 Frankfurt Book Fair will be an opportunity for the city to learn new trends from the global publishing market, look at advanced support technology for publishing, develop its reading culture, copyright transactions with other publishers and study and learn experiences to organise international book events in Hà Nội,” said the director of the Hà Nội Centre for Investment, Trade and Tourism, Nguyễn Gia Phương.
The Hà Nội pavillion will display multilingual books on Vietnamese history and culture, including philosophy, literature, education and children.
In addition, Hà Nội will also promote tourism through a series of documentary films on intangible cultural heritages and craft villages.
The 2018 Frankfurt Book Fair is scheduled to take place from October 10 to 14 at the Frankfurt Exhibition Centre. Last year the fair attracted more than 286,000 visitors from more than 100 countries with more than 7,300 booths, according to the organisers. — VNS
