He noted that Iran's pavilion covers an area of 500-square meters. "Six authors and 12 publishers will take part independently while books by 10 publishers would be presented indirectly at the exhibition."

He continued that the Iranian literary agents will be very active at the Islamic Republic's pavilion.

"Iranian books translated into Chinese will be introduced. Likewise, some selected works by Iranian publishers in areas like Iranistics, child and adolescent, contemporary Iranian literature, and books winning domestic awards next to Iranian books printed abroad would also be put on show,” he stated.

According to Shahramnia, a book called 'Chinese Iranologists', which focuses on cultural relations between Iran and China, besides a bibliography of Iranian and Chinese books will be introduced at Iran's corner.

He said projects, such as supporting Iranian books in global markets (Grant), and the week of Iranian films would also be presented to the visitors.
