We announced today the launch of a new initiative to improve the reading content and to support school’s libraries with one million books. ”
He added, “We can’t create a tolerant society and stable families without culture, reading or knowledge.”
He also said that there is a reading law which aims to get 80 percent of students read, and to increase the nation content of reading from 400 books to 4,000 books by 2026.
