And no, watching a movie based on a book doesn't count.

Vietnam's government has announced a new initiatve to promote reading, hoping that locals will read at least four books a year by 2020.

This project, approved on Wednesday, will include public campaigns and efforts to make libraries more popular and accessible, Tuoi Tre newspaper reported.

The report says Vietnam aims to attract around 300 million visits to public libraries and schools each year.

Le Hoang, Vice Chairman of the Vietnam Publishing Association, said at a conference last December that reading culture in Vietnam is fading.

Hoang said that while book sales have increased in recent years, 80% of all books sold in Vietnam are textbooks and study guides.

Apart from those textbooks, Vietnamese only read an average of one book a year, he said, as cited by Tuoi Tre.

Meanwhile, the typical American, for example, now reads four books a year, contributing to the Pew Research Center.

Hoang criticized schools for not encouraging successful reading and creativity.

The new government-funded reading initiative will also promote e-books.In Vietnam, where piracy remains one of the biggest challenges facing the creative economy, e-books now represent a tiny zero.5% of total book sales.

The country's relatively small publishing industry cannot compete with the variety of content on the internet.

When Vietnamese people sit in front of a screen, the likelihood that they are reading a book is very low.

More than half of the population is now online.And a Nielsen survey last September showed that 92% of Vietnamese internet users watch online videos at least once a week, the highest rate in Southeast Asia, and the number of daily viewers has increased significantly. from 10% of internet users in 2012 to 64% last year. .

Vietnam also entered the list of top 10 countries with the world's top watch time on YouTube at the end of 2015.Google, the owner of YouTube, says watch time in Vietnam has increased 120 percent year-over-year.
