Growth, Co-operation, and Development in International Publishing

Sponsors: General Administration of Press and Publication of China and London Book Fair

Organisers: China National Publications Import & Export (Group) Corporation and London Book Fair

There has been a long history of co-operation between China and Europe in the copyright trade and in publishing, which goes back to the 1980s. The Chinese Publishing industry has achieved record growth as a result of modernization and consolidation in the past few years and the Chinese Government is now promoting the outward expansion of the Chinese publishing industry. Publishing in the United Kingdom has played a key part in the international expansion of creative industries, especially in the context of the global use of the English Language. China’s engagement in the international book trade and the growing use of the Chinese Language will create new challenges and opportunities for all international publishers as the rapid digitalization of the industry continues. These factors set the stage for the China Market Focus Programme at London Book Fair 2012, and the China Europe International Publishing Forum will consider these issues in a European Context.
