"The exhibition is a very important event for Chinese learners in Cambodia because a lot of reading books in various subjects are available," he told Xinhua. "I'm keen to read books related to Chinese history, culture and folktales."

Heang Pov Yi, 17, also a high school student at the Duan Xua Chinese School, said the annual fair would also serve to promote Chinese language and culture in the Southeast Asian nation.

The event was organized by the Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, with the support from the Embassy of China in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and the Cambodian Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts.
