Speaker: Ren Dianshun, Editor in Chief of China Publishers Magazine, Researcher of China South Publishing & Media Group (China)
In 2019, the overall sales of China's children's books were 23.2 billion RMB. The proportion of imported children’s books was undergoing some changes during the past years. In the future, the market will continue to grow at a different pace compared to past decade.
4. Building Confidence and Embracing Challenges to Promote the Sustainable Development and Prosperity in the Children’s Book Publishing Industry
Speaker: Fu Dawei, President of Tomorrow Publishing House (China)
The sudden outbreak of the Covid-2019 in early 2020 has influenced all aspects of our society and economy, including in the children's book publishing industry. Thanks to good market foundations and a strong reader demand, the overall market for Chinese children's books has just slightly declined, but it has not been hit hard. We believe that China's children's book publishing industry will keep on growing after the epidemic and pursue its prosperous path initiated 15 years ago.
5. Traveling the World: The colorful bridge of children’s books between Italy and China
Speaker: Lee Ann Bortolussi, International Foreign Rights Manager, Giunti Editore (Italy)
Giunti has been present in the international children’s book market for many years, and all of the imprints in our group have exchanged rights with China. Despite changes and developments big and small in our reciprocal markets over time, the bridge between Italy and China, between Giunti and our Chinese publishers, remains strong, enthusiastic, and very colorful. A closer look will show us what it is made of, and what lies ahead in the world of children’s books.
