SHARJAH: Sharjah’s cultural achievements and its efforts to promote cross-border cooperation in literature, science and the arts were recently showcased by the Sharjah Book Authority (SBA), at the 31st Moscow International Book Fair (MIBF).

The Authority took the opportunity to meet with publishers, literary agents, literary experts and cultural entities at one of the biggest book forums in Russia and in the CIS, which hosted more than 100,000 visitors and 600 publishing and printing houses, and state entities from 40 countries this year.

SBA’s pavilion at the fair became a networking platform where SBA and publishing communities in CIS as well as from around the world got together to discuss a possible representation at the upcoming edition of the Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF), which will be inaugurated on October 31. The Authority also held meetings with Russian intellectual elites to discuss the array of its cultural events and initiatives.

Ahmed Al Ameri, Chairman of SBA, said: “Sharjah Book Authority’s participation is in line with the vision of His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, which encourages us to be open to global experiences and expertise, as well as enhance our cultural exchanges with the world.”
