It should be noted that due to the difficult political situation in the Middle East, the event has not been held for several years at all. However, the number of participants this year suggests that the Cairo Fair once again becomes one of the world’s largest literary events.
This year, the Russian delegation traditionally arrived at the event in Cairo. In its composition - Orientalist-Arabist Vladimir Belyakov and writer Natalie Kurtog. The program of the Russian delegation prepared for the exhibition includes master classes, lectures and roundtables on the topic of Russian-Egyptian relations. According to the orientalist Vladimir Belyakov, the Egyptian intelligentsia speaks of the need to translate Russian literature into Arabic, and Egyptian - into Russian. Recall that in 2010, Russia was an honorary guest of the Cairo International Book Forum.
For the first time the fair in the capital of Egypt was held in 1969, then it was dedicated to the millennium from the day of the founding of Cairo. The initiator of the international book forum in Cairo was originally the General Egyptian Book Organization.
