Egypt's PM inaugurates Cairo International Book Fair

Cairo (UNA-OIC) – Egyptian Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly on Wednesday inaugurated the 52nd edition of Cairo International Book Fair (CIBF), held under the slogan of “In Reading, There Is Life”.

The CIBF, whose activities will last until July 15, has brought together 1,218 participants from 25 countries, including Egyptian and foreign publishers, in addition to 49 bookstores from Cairo’s Soor el-Azbakeya book market.

The CIBF is organized by the General Egyptian Book Organization (GEBO), which launched for the first time this year an online platform, to enable viewers can make virtual visits and buy books online. This will help limit the number of daily in-person visits to the fair in compliance with the precautionary and preventive measures.
