2019-BIBF—Signing Ceremony of the Multilingual Version of The Handbook of the Belt and Road


The 26th Beijing International Book Fair (BIBF) was grandly opened at the China International Exhibition Center. On August 22, the China Social Sciences Press and the publishing institutions of India, Nepal, Egypt, Algeria, Lebanon held a multilingual cooperation signing ceremony for The Handbook of the Belt and Road.


The Handbook of the Belt and Road is a very important work of China Social Sciences Press. It is jointly planned by President Zhao Jianying of CSSP and Routledge, and is edited by Cai Fang, Vice President of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, and Peter Nolan, Professor of the University of Cambridge, UK. The Handbook is the world’s first encyclopedia of the Belt and Road Initiative. Once the manual was launched, it was highly valued by the relevant departments of the central government and became the display book for this year's “Belt and Road” international cooperation summit forum. In June of this year, Routledge Handbook of the Belt and Road Book Launch and BRI Seminar was successfully held at the University of Cambridge. More than 50 Chinese and foreign scholars attended the forum and started a dialogue with great influence.


The Belt and Road Initiative is a new topic in the world. Political economists and ordinary readers in Arab countries hope to understand China and its impact on them through professional works on the Belt and Road. The signing of the Arabic version of The Handbook of the Belt and Road has met the market demand and will surely trigger the climax of the discussion on the Belt and Road in Arab countries and regions.
