The London Book Fair (LBF) Market Focus programme, which is run in partnership with the British Council, will include cultural events celebrating Indonesian authors and books, and a professional programme designed to enable and enhance business opportunities. Market Focus offers the UK and international publishers the chance to forge new business partnerships and expand into global markets.
Indonesia is the fourth most populous country in the world and the largest producer of books in Southeast Asia (and a large consumer of foreign titles). Over the last few years, there has been substantial growth in the sale of rights of Indonesian books to territories around the world, ranging from fashion and design to Islam and politics.
Through publishing incentives and an extensive cultural programme including its LBF Market Focus partnership, Indonesia through The Indonesian Agency for Creative Economy and the Ministry of Education and Culture is making a concerted effort to introduce the country’s “17,000 Islands of Imagination” to the international public and, especially, to the UK.
1-2-1 Sessions with the Department for International Trade
