May 8, 2017

TEHRAN – The president of the Association of Hungarian Publishers’ and Booksellers’ Association, Andras Sandor Kocsis, has said that they are eager to collaborate with Iranian publishers on children’s books.

Iran and Hungary can focus their collaboration on children’s publications, he told the Persian service of MNA at the Tehran International Book Fair on Sunday.

He also added that children’s books translated from other languages are most welcome.

Kocsis expressed his hope that he could make pacts with Iranian publishers in this field before the fair wraps up.

He described Iranian children’s books and their illustrations as amazing and Hungarian publishers care a lot about illustrations in children’s books.

According to Kocsis, about 400 publishing companies are working in his country. However, 50 percent of the country’s publishing industry is dominated by only 12 publishers, he said.

The 30th edition of the Tehran International Book Fair will come to an end this Friday.
