The Egyptian Ambassador in Indonesia Amr Moawad and Governor of Jakarta Anies Baswedan inaugurated the Egyptian pavilion at the Indonesia International Book Fair (IIBF) on 4 September.  

The Egyptian General Book Organisation (EGBO), headed by Haitham El-Haj Ali, represented Egypt in the fair. The ceremonies were attended by the undersecretary and head of the marketing sector at the EGBO Mohamed El-Fiki.


Jakarta governor Baswedan expressed his admiration of the variety of publications and the collection of papyrus on display at the Egyptian pavilion.

The EGBO’s commemorative medal was awarded by El-Haj Ali to the Egyptian ambassador in recognition of the distinguished role played by the Egyptian embassy in Indonesia.


Moawad praised the relentless efforts exerted by the Ministry of Culture and the Book Organisation and its keenness to present an image of Egypt at international forums that suits the country's global status.

The Egyptian pavilion offers a large number of EGBO’s latest publications including children and heritage books as well as books on folk and religious studies.

The fair continues to 8 September.
