Regarding this year’s Reading Culture Ambassador contest in the military, General Duc noted that with the participation of 15 military schools, this is an occasion to evaluate reading habit in grassroots units. He believed that the reading movement would be further expanded in the military, thereby honoring good virtues of Uncle Ho’s soldiers, and encouraging troops to preserve and promote national cultural values, to name but a few.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the book exhibition, Director of the Military Library Colonel Mac Thuy Duong said that the event features nearly 1,200 books and articles that have been preserved over the past 70 years. The exhibition will last until May 9, 2024.
