With the theme "Lighting the Fire of Knowledge-Creating the Future", the event is one of the activities to celebrate the 69th anniversary of Capital Liberation Day (October 10), the 70th anniversary of the Publication, Printing, and Distribution Day (October 10), and to implement the Government's plan to develop the reading culture in Hanoi.

The book fair aims to raise public awareness of the importance of reading in improving knowledge and skills, developing thinking and cultivating personality, and gradually building reading habits in families, schools, agencies, organizations, and communities.

The Hanoi Book Fair 2003 is expected to attract the participation of local and international publishers who will present various genres of books in 200 to 250 booths, ranging from comic books, novels, literature, and political literature to bookworms.

The highlight of the book fair will be a bookshelf introducing the culture and history of Thang Long-Hanoi. As usual, the side activities of the event include book launch ceremonies, book trading activities, and book copyright exchange.

For many years, the Hanoi Book Fair has become an annual cultural activity that attracts great interest from the community.
