16 publishers from east China’s Anhui province are taking part in the 28th Beijing International Book Fair.
The Anhui pavilion showcases more than 3,000 publications and cultural products as part of the province’s latest achievements in the publishing industry.
Huang Kunming, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and head of the Publicity Department of the CPC Central Committee, visited the Anhui pavilion on Tuesday when the fair opened.
As the first large-scale international book fair with online and offline events amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the five-day event has attracted 2,200 exhibitors from 105 countries and regions.
The Anhui pavilion highlights books that celebrate the centenary of the founding of the CPC and that aim for going global.
The Anhui-based publishing houses are staging a series of cultural activities at the fair, including business talks, contract-signing ceremonies and new book releases. In addition, online activities are being held by using new technologies like VR and livestreaming.
