Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority participates in the 1st edition of the ’Belt and Road Bookfair’(BRBF)
(15 August 2017)


Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) will take part in the 1st edition of the ‘Belt and Road bookfair’ for copyright trade, which will be held in Shandong, China, from 19th -21st  August 2017.

TCA Abu Dhabi’s participation will be represented by the ‘Kalima’ translation project as a continuation of discussion carried out with the Chinese counterpart during the27th Abu Dhabi International Book Fair .

The ‘Belt and Road Bookfair’ is expected to host more than 100 Chinese and foreign publishing houses, including a number of activities and events, such as the Summit Forum, a series of lectures and a tour of the Chinese philosopher Confucius’ hometown, will coincide with the Fair’s activities.

HE Saif Saeed Ghobash, Director General of TCA Abu Dhabi, said: “In September 2013, Chinese President Xi Jinping launched the Belt and Road initiative aiming at promoting exchange, cooperation and innovation between Eurasian countries. It is important to underscore China's rise in the world in all areas, especially as China is also one of Abu Dhabi’s key international markets.  China is now our largest overseas source market with year-to-date (YTD) guest arrivals up 55% to 185,000,

China began to pay great attention to extending cultural bridges with other nations. For example, it established the Confucius Institutes in 2004 as vital platforms for spreading the Chinese language and culture. Presently, the number of established Confucius institutes and classrooms has reached 1,500 in 135 countries, 9 of which are divided between Egypt, UAE, Bahrain, Sudan, Tunisia and Jordan.

“Through our participation at the Fair, we seek to promote dialogue among different cultures and find common grounds that will establish a genuine partnership, and achieve development based on respect for history, traditions, customs, values and heritage, all of which are consistent with the Chinese experience,” added Ghobash.
