Slovenia to Be an Honorary Guest at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2022
The Minister of Culture Tone Peršak and the Head of the State Agency for Book Publishing Renat Zamid signed a corresponding agreement with the manager of the world’s largest book fair, Jürgen Boos.
The status of the Fair’s honoured guest will allow Slovenia to improve its reputation as a state, as well as to acquaint the broad international community with its literature and culture. Slovenian book as a cultural monument and intellectual product, thereby, will receive an additional market impulse. According to the Culture Minister Tone Peršak, participation in the fair will promote intercultural dialogue.
The Frankfurt Book Fair annually attracts 150 countries, about 10,000 journalists and about 200,000 visitors.
The historical tradition of this fair accounts for more than 1,000 years.
