Following our success as the Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2015, Indonesia returns to this largest and oldest book exhibition every year through the efforts of our National Book Committee (NBC). The National Book Committee formed by the Indonesian Ministry of Education and Culture has worked hard to maintain Indonesia’s presence at a number of international book fairs and has made systematic efforts in promoting creative works by Indonesian writers. This has been undertaken among others through a program to fund the translation of Indonesian authors’ works into various foreign languages. The translation of books is part of the exchange of ideas and cultural diplomacy among nations. Thus, efforts to promote Indonesian literary works through translation into various foreign languages must be encouraged. The NBC is also striving to create programs to empower writers, including residency programs for Indonesian writers in several countries. Besides that, the NBC also holds workshops to enhance the abilities of Indonesian writers.

At the Frankfurt Book Fair, the Indonesian stand is presenting books by Indonesia’s best writers in a range of genres, including the novels of Eka Kurniawan which have been translated into more than 30 languages. As in other international book fairs, including in London and Beijing, here we are also displaying non-fiction books regarding various aspects of Indonesian culture, as well as children’s books, and comics. Books will also be displayed on the rich traditional culinary arts of Indonesia, many of which have already gone global.

We hope that our presence at  Frankfurt Book Fair will help to further introduce the cultural and intellectual wealth of Indonesia to the eyes of the world. Besides developing friendship among nations, we hope that an increasing number of books by Indonesian writers will be translated and published in other countries.
