Beijing Book Fair Sees Saudi Arabia Shine

As the honored guest of the Beijing International Book Fair, Saudi Arabia has taken center stage. The event’s high point is the Prince Mohammed bin Salman Award for Cultural Cooperation between the Kingdom and China.

The award was introduced in March by Prince Badr bin Farhan, the Saudi Minister of Culture, with the goal of promoting cultural collaboration and exchange between the two countries. It spans a variety of artistic and cultural domains and is split into two groups: the youth and the cultural elite.

The award was introduced at a cultural conference that took place outside the five-day fair, which runs through Sunday. Fu Ji Min, dean of Peking University’s college of languages, and Abdul Mohsen bin Salem Al-Aqeeli, secretary-general of the award, participated in the seminar.

The prize aspires to invest in the rich human, symbolic, and material history that both countries possess. It is based on the values of openness, cultural interchange, diversity, and mindful appreciation of human commonalities, according to a statement.

Candidates are urged to apply as the award’s nomination procedure has opened.

A five-day cultural program, comprising seminars, panel discussions, exhibits of books, manuscripts, and archeological items, live traditional performances, and a special Saudi dinner night, was offered at the Saudi pavilion during the book fair.

At the event, which featured 220,000 Chinese and foreign periodicals, there were over 1,600 exhibitors representing 71 different countries and regions.
