The 9th China Shanghai International Children's Book Fair (CCBF), after two years of careful preparation and with the high expectations of all parties in the publishing industry, warmly welcomed readers in the early winter when the epidemic situation was still fluctuating. This fair has made full use of digital technology, set up a diversified exhibition and viewing mode, and achieved excellent online and offline interaction, domestic and foreign linkage. Through the combination of bookstores and workshops and other innovative means, it has strengthened the cultural construction, and further enhanced the brand image and social influence of the fair. I hope there will be no more epidemics next year, and a more exciting fair next year.

It is encouraging to see this edition's CCBF held as scheduled in the face of such a grim epidemic prevention situation. The scene of young readers embracing reading in spite of the epidemic was so touching. Our publishing house is determined to participate in the exhibition despite the difficulties, because, like you all, we firmly believe that there is no such thing as a bad winter. We also take this action to pay tribute to CCBF and to the enthusiastic young readers in Shanghai.

During the short three-day exhibition period, we were deeply moved by the enthusiasm of Shanghai readers. The exhibition site and stand were filled with a strong atmosphere of reading, especially those children who love to read, which made the editors of POST WAVE KIDS feel very happy.
Ran Huarong (China), Editor-in-Chief of Post Wave Kids Publishing Consulting Co., Ltd.
China represents a very important market for the Italian book industry. In particular, the segment related to books for children is very productive in Italy, with many valuables companies and can have important outlets in the Chinese market. Even if the pandemic created some difficulties to the opportunities for the match between Italian books companies and Chinese companies, we believe that events like CCBF can help to boost the business connections and recreate important links in the rights exchange between the 2 markets.
Giuliano Martini (Italy), Deputy Trade Commissioner of Italian Trade Agency Shanghai Office
