|MINSK Offerta Uomo Salomon S-Lab Fellcross 2 Trail Rosse Nere , Feb. 12 (Xinhua) -- Communication through books will enhance understanding between China and the rest of the world, said a Chinese official to the 22nd Minsk International Book Fair which opened here Wednesday.
The Belarusian people have shown a great interest in China and hope to know more about the country through reading, said Yan Xiaohong, deputy director of the State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television of China, and head of Chinese delegation to the book fair.
China, for the first time, is the Guest of Honor of this fair held at the Belarusian National Exhibition Center.
"For China, the exhibition is not only a platform for books and publication business, but a stage for cultural exchange among nations," Yan said in an interview with Xinhua.
As this year's Guest of Honor, China also sees the book fair an opportunity for its national publishing industry to learn from global publishers.
"China is a big publisher of books, but the industry is not strong enough," said Yan.
Deficit in the copyright trade with world leading publishers in the United States and Europe is still a problem confronting China.
"The Chinese publishing industry must stand up to the competition from global publishing giants and learn from them advanced experience and operational modes," he said.
The Chinese government attaches great importance to promoting Chinese publications at well-known international book fairs.
"China has attended a number of such activities. Besides this exhibition in Minsk, it will, also as the guest of honor, take part in a book fair in the U.S.," said the official.
Up to 5,000 books are showcased at the exhibition, which are classified into eight sections with different themes including celebration of the 70th anniversary of the victory in World Anti-Fascist War, publishing and printing in ancient China and so on.
There is a special booth for translation publications, including about 130 books translated into Chinese or Belarusian by writers and translators of both countries, Yan said.
Except for book exhibition, dozens of forums and symposiums will be held between the two country's publishers, writers and translators during the five-day gathering.
"With China's 'Belt and Road' initiatives, cooperation in the publishing area among countries along the new silk road will be brought to a new height," said Yan.
STRASBOURG, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- At 33 years old, Nicolas Cavailles is one of the youngest authors to have won the Goncourt Short Story prize, having received the award for his "The Life of Mr. Leguat" on Saturday in Strasbourg.
The only laureates to have been younger were Sebastien Lapaque, who was 31 years old when he won the prize in 2002, and Oliver Adam, who was 30 years old when selected in 2004.
Born in 1981 in Saint-Jean-sur-Veyle, the same city as his book's protagonist, Leguat, Cavailles studied philosophy and literature, earning a doctorate in literature from Jean Moulin University Lyon 3 for a thesis written on Emil Cioran.
A specialist on the work of the Romanian philosopher, Cavailles co-edited Cioran's French writings for the prestigious Pleiade Library edition (2011), along with Aurelien Demars.
Since 2013, Cavailles has also directed Hochroth-Paris, a small publishing house dedicated to international poetry.
"The Life of Mr. Leguat" is the first book of fiction from Cavailles. At 68 pages and consisting of a single novella-length story, is an unusual selection for the Academie Goncourt, which has previously always awarded the prize since its inauguration in 1974 to books including several short stories by a single author.
The story retells the adventures of Francois Leguat, a little-known historical figure from the 17th century who went into exile at the age of 50, after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes forced French Huguenots to convert to Catholicism or flee the country.
Cavailles recounts the voyages that followed Leguat'sdeparture from France, which began in Holland and carried him as far as Mauritius and the island of Réunion in the Indian Ocean.
Leguat lived to the age of 96, and after returning to Europe to settle in London, published an account of his adventures. Cavailles reimagines those experiences while introducing philosophical themes, such as the question of free will and our ability to control the paths our lives follow.
Representing the Academie Goncourt at the award ceremony on Sept. 27, Didier Decoin praised Cavailles' book as "a rare literary delight."
BEIJING, Sept. 20 (Xinhua) -- The State Council on Wednesday issued a guideline to better protect cultural relics in China.
As spiritual and cultural symbols of Chinese civilization, cultural relics serve as an embodiment of national memory, thus protecting cultural relics is protecting the county's history, according to the guideline.
However, the illegal dealing, storing and auctioning of cultural relics has been frequent in recent years, which shows a lack of supervision and loopholes in protection work, according to the guideline.
The guideline said that governments at all levels should fulfill their duties in the local management and security of cultural relics, and strengthen law enforcement protection.
It said the accountability system for the security of relics needed to improve, and areas related to protection, including customs, tourism and religious authorities, should work together to crack down on related crime.
Modern science and technology should also play a bigger part in improving the protection of cultural relics, while relevant laws and regulations should be further publicized, the guideline suggested.
The guideline also underlined the need to strengthen supervision of protection work, and to take stronger action against those accountable for the damage, los.
