In recognition of Sharjah’s esteemed global cultural status, the emirate is set to illuminate the rich culture and heritage of the UAE and the Arab world on an international stage. Sharjah will proudly serve as the Guest of Honour at the upcoming edition of the Thessaloniki International Book Fair, scheduled to take place from May 16th to May 19th, 2024, in Greece.
This monumental announcement was unveiled during the ongoing Sharjah International Book Fair (SIBF 2023). The announcement came to life through a signing ceremony between the Sharjah Book Authority (SBA) and the Hellenic Foundation for Culture, led by Nikos Koukis, President of the Hellenic Foundation for Culture, and, Khoula al-Mujaini, Director of Events and Marketing, SBA. The event was graced by the presence of key figures, including Ahmed bin Rakkad al-Ameri, CEO of SBA; a; and several members of the Greek delegation attending the book fair.
HE Ahmed al-Ameri, CEO of SBA, expressed his thoughts on this prestigious title, saying: “Sharjah’s participation in the Thessaloniki International Book Fair represents a fresh opportunity for Emirati and Arab culture to engage in profound dialogue with Europe. Europe, renowned for its Greek civilisation and roots extending across the Mediterranean basin, serves as a natural bridge for this cultural exchange. This recognition stands as a testament to the vision of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed al-Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah. His vision emphasises that nations and civilisations may diverge in interests and aspirations, yet they converge when it comes to the power of books. Books are a cornerstone in community development, the pursuit of aspirations, and the attainment of holistic development goals.”
