SHARJAH: In keeping with its dedication to further promote the emirate of Sharjah as one of the world’s most vibrant book industry centres, the Sharjah Publishing City (SPC) participated in the 32nd edition of the International Publishers Association Congress (IPA Congress), organised by the International Publishers Association (IPA) and sponsored by the Sharjah Book Authority (SBA) in New Delhi, India.

The SPC, the world’s first free zone dedicated to publishing, participated in this international event, given its global importance as one of the most significant recent developments in the business, and owing to the fact that it is a platform dedicated entirely to addressing key publishing principles, and exploring latest novelties in the book industry.

The SPC was keen to promote the key services delivered to publishers as a fully-integrated cultural project that creates an ideal environment for book experts and facilitates major processes like printing, translation, editing, designing and distribution services – all in one destination. These advantages were welcomed and appreciated by participating publishers from around the world, who showed great interest in joining the City and making the most of its premium services, pointing out the significant impact of Arabic books market on the global market.

Ahmed Al Ameri, Chairman of SBA, participated in a panel titled ‘Bringing Publishing Markets Together’, alongside José Borghino, Secretary General of IPA; Ramesh K Mittal, Director of DK Agencies; and Jacks Thomas, Director of London Book Fair (LBF).
