China Participates in the Alexandria International Book Fair for the First Time
China is participating in this year’s Alexandria International Book Fair for the first time through the House of Wisdom, its representative in the Arab region. Dr. Mohamed Sultan, Governor of Alexandria, had recently toured the Book Fair and was greatly impressed with the displayed Arabic translations of several Chinese publications.
China is contributing to this year’s Fair with Arabic translations of the literary works of prominent Chinese authors and intellects. Said works reflect the Chinese culture for they tackle a variety of topics that attracted and intrigued the Fair’s Alexandrian visitors.
Within the context of the Book Fair’s activities, the Egyptian national committee for museums of the International Council of Museums (ICOM) announced the publication of a journal dedicated to museums in China, for China houses the biggest number of museums in the world and is home to a large number of specialized museums.
