President of the Federation of Indian Publishers to visit the Iranian Stand in the New Delhi World Book Fair
N. K. Mehra, the president of the Federation of Indian Publishers, had a meeting with the Iranian Stand executives.
According to a report by the Public Relations Department of the ICFI, on the fifth day of the New Delhi World Book Fair, N. K. Mehra, the president of the Federation of Indian Publishers paid a visit to the Iranian Stand while accompanied by Abedi, the Deputy of the Iranian Attaché in New Delhi.
During the visit, Mehra appreciated the presence of Iran in the New Delhi World Book Fair and the events provided by Iran in this book fair.
Pointing to the mutual relationships between the two countries he demanded more cultural relationships especially holding cultural fairs as well as tours for the writers and publishers of the two countries.
Based on what outlined in the visit, the status of the publishing industry in Iran was evaluated better than that in India given the higher population of that country. Therefore, it was supposed that some of the Iranian management procedures in the field of books are emulated in India. Among these measures were the special cards given to the students in the TIBF that let them buy books with a high amount of discount; the president of the Federation of Indian Publishers evaluated this procedure quite positive.
In another part of the visit, Mehra invited the Iranian publishers to attend the International Publishers Congress to be held in India between Feb. 10 and 14.
The representative of the ICFI, on the other hand, appreciated his visit to the Iranian Stand and invited him to attend the TIBF giving detailed information about the event and other cultural fairs in Iran. In the end, a cultural gift was presented to him.
