Zhang Fuhai, Director of the Foreign Exchange and Cooperation Department, GAPP, gave a speech at the June 9 press conference on China’s Guest of Honour events in Frankfurt, Germany.
The third of its kind, the press conference was held by General Administration of Press and Publication of China at the Literaturhaus Frankfurt, to brief on the arrangements for Guest of Honour events. It also unveiled the design of China’s Theme Pavilion.
Chinese artist Li Jiwei is the chief designer of the Pavilion. His design blends paper, type, book and ink drops and other elements essential to publishing and exhibits the history of books from those recorded on bones or tortoise shells (oracle bone inscription) to those of the digital age. It is highly prized by the fair organizer and the media. (Photographed by Xun Gongdi, Xinhua News Agency journalist)
