Since the launch of the China Market Focus programme eighteen months ago, UK and Chinese publishers and writers have been engaging with each other’s markets through a number of targeted seminars, delegations and workshops. This will now culminate in a celebration of contemporary Chinese literature and a showcase of Chinese publishing that will mark ‘New Perspectives – New Concepts’ in bringing Chinese writing and publishing to the world. The Market Focus programme aims to strengthen cultural and business relations, educate the global publishing community about Chinese literature and contemporary Chinese authors, and help Chinese publishers to promote their books and literature to an international audience via the fair. The cultural programme detailed in these pages will showcase the Chinese writers visiting The London Book Fair through seminars, readings and events in and around the fair. These provide the opportunity for this new generation of Chinese writers to discuss topics of relevance in front of an international literary audience and to meet their international peers. Furthermore it offers the exposure for rights and export sales from the international publishing community. The professional programme running concurrently at the fair will offer educational opportunities for those interested in learning about different aspects of the Chinese publishing industry. Details of the programme and the participating Chinese publishers are also included in this brochure. With the largest publishing output in the world by volume and a dynamic collection of Chinese writers ready to share their work with an international audience, now could not be a better time to look at the business, cultural and collaborative opportunities presented by the China Market Focus 2012, China – New Perspectives – New Concepts.
