SARAJEVO, Bosnia (April 25,2008) – The International Book Fair jointly organized by Skenderija Centre, Sahinpasic Publishing and Association of Publishers officially opened in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo.

The Bosnian President Haris Silajdzic opened the Fair.

The Sarajevo Book Fair has become an important fact in the region. Together with the guests from the region, Bosnian publishers will present their books.

They are in by far most difficult situation compared to the neighbours. However, an encouraging fact is that Foundation of Libraries has been formed, so all the books written by Bosnian authors and translations will be purchased.

President Silajdzic emphasized that Sarajevo is the city in which culture has always been cherished and expressed hope that it will always remain like that. He emphasized hope that better conditions will be created for publishing and that authors will have a better status in Bosnia.

The fair will last until April 28. 220 presenters will participate.
