During his visit to CICC's booth, Chinese Ambassador to Kuwait Zhang Jianwei said Kuwaiti readers are very fond of coming here to purchase Chinese books, which introduce Chinese tradition and culture in Arabic and English.

Textbooks for learning Chinese were also on display during the event.

The book fair is sponsored by Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheikh Ahmad Nawaf Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah and organized by Kuwait's Ministry of Information, Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, and National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters.
