ASHGABAT, Oct. 15—Book industry representatives from 22 countries of the world gathered at the Ashgabat book fair earlier this month. More than 60 participants displayed their colourful exhibits in the halls of the exhibition complex.

Discussions, authors’ meetings, “round tables,” and literary readings in Ashgabat schools and libraries were held as part of the humanitarian forum. A press conference of the Russian Union of Writers considered the issue of re-establishing humanitarian cooperation in the field of literature.

The European Commission participated with a display entitled, “House of Europe”. It featured comtemporary works from Germany, France and England, which attracted a great deal of attention from visitors.

The exhibition and displays reflected well on the level of creativity Turkmenistan has reached in contemporary publication. Its state publishing service and printing centre pavilion featured novelty books and electronic media. Audio books providing information about Turkmenistan history, and culture were also available. The government’s display was supplemented by exhibits of more than 20 private businesses which contained publications of classic Turkmen and eastern literature, colourful albums and calendars, postcards and brochures.

Kazan Publications director Zaman M. Garifzyanov summed it up by saying that, “The Ashgabat book fair provides good opportunities to establish direct business contacts that we will develop for the future.”
