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.

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.
