ROME: The Emirates Publishers’ Association (EPA) has successfully concluded a matchmaking session with Brazilian publishers.

The meeting was held at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair as a precursor to Sharjah being the guest of honour at Sao Paolo Book Fair 2018.

Hosted at the Brazil stand during the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, which was held on April 3-6 in Italy, the meeting saw high-level representatives from Emirati and Brazilian publishing houses discussing strategic areas of mutual cooperation and possible ways to take their relationships to new levels, incorporating a more integrated cross-cultural communication paradigm.
