Aleksandr Lukashenko greets participants of 20th Minsk International Book Fair

    Dear friends,

    I send my best greetings to the participants and guests of the 20th Minsk International Book Fair.

    Over the past 20 years the forum became not only one of the brightest events in the cultural and spiritual life of the country, but also found great popularity in the global bookish community. The anniversary book fair is the culmination of the Year of the Book, hard and laborious work to promote reading and literature.

    We cordially greet Russia, the Guest of Honor of the forum, and all foreign participants who will display expositions of their countries. I am convinced that guests will appreciate your publications.

    I wish fruitful work and every success to the participants of the book fair, interesting and memorable contacts with the wonderful world of books.


    Aleksandr Lukashenko
