NDO – A total of 65 outstanding works were presented with the Literature and Arts Association at a conference held in Hanoi on January 9, to review the operation of the Vietnam Union of Literary and Arts Associations in 2018.

The winning works stood out from nearly 350 entries sent by 57 out of 63 local literature and arts associations nationwide, as well as the union’s member associations at the central level.

According to poet Huu Thinh, Chairman of the Union, this year recorded the largest number of participating local literature and arts associations over the past two decades.
