Some 100 newspapers and magazines of Nghệ An and other provinces participated in the event, which was hosted by Nghệ An’s Journalists’ Association.

The organisation board presented 200 gifts to poor households in the communes of Châu Khê, Cam Lâm, Lạng Khê and Môn Sơn.

The northern Quảng Ninh Province’s Journalists’ Association also organised the spring press festival in Cô Tô District, starting on Tuesday.

Some 200 newspapers, magazines and other press products from various localities participated in the festival.
