A total of 46 foreign writers, translators, publishers and critics in related fields will discuss with their Chinese peers ways to improve Chinese literature translation and publishing during the workshop.

“We hope to encourage more in-depth communication between Chinese and foreign professionals and institutions in the field of literature, publishing and translation, help them understand the dynamics of Chinese literature and publishing industries, and to find better ways to show Chinese culture to the world,” said Zhu Qi, deputy director of Bureau for External Cultural Relations, Ministry of Culture, during his opening speech.

According to Jiang Haoshu, head of Translation Affairs at the Bureau for External Cultural Relations of the Ministry of Culture, practicality will be one of the four features for this year’s workshop.

“This year’s forum is more results-oriented,” Jiang said. “We will arrange publishers from specific publishing groups, like China Publishing Group Corporation (CPG), to communicate with writers and translators on specific book projects.”

With the booming of internet related industries in China, a symposium on the overseas translation and publishing of Chinese network literature works will be another new feature for this year’s workshop.
