Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

BEIRUT: Kuwait’s pavil­ion at the 60th Beirut in­ter­na­tional book fair has at­tracted all kinds of vis­i­tors, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of the Kuwait’s Univer­sity Jour­nal of the Gulf and Ara­bian Penin­sula Stud­ies Sheikha Suhaila Fa­had AlSabah said yesterday. Sheikha Suhaila added that a va­ri­ety of 5,500 Kuwaiti-pub­lished books were sold dur­ing the fair. This con­trib­utes to pro­mot­ing sci­ence, knowl­edge and cul­ture among Arab read­ers, she said. Kuwait has al­ways been ea­ger to par­tic­i­pate in these kind of fairs to dis­play its pub­li­ca­tions. On his part in a spe­cial state­ment to KUNA, Head of the Arab Cul­tural Club Fadi Tamim, who or­ga­nized Beirut’s in­ter­na­tional book fair, hailed Kuwait’s distin­guished pavil­ion in the fair, which rep­re­sents a cul­tural bea­con for the Arab world. Tamim added that main­tain­ing Beirut’s fair for 60 years shows the suc­cess of the event, point­ing out that the fair wit­nessed an enor­mous at­ten­dance and sig­nif­i­cant books sales, com­pared with the sales in last year’s fair. More than 180 Le­banese pub­lish­ing houses in ad­di­tion of 75 from Arab and for­eign coun­tries took part in the event.
