Chinese authors of books translated into Belarusian visit Minsk

A presentation of books by Chinese authors whose books were translated into Belarusian was held in the Belarus capital.

A delegation of the Union of Writers in Shanghai is now in Minsk. Despite the fact that this is the first visit of the writers from China, for a long time there has been close literary collaboration between the two countries. In particular, Chinese students studying in Belarus are leading their literary projects.

Van Vei, Vice Chairman of Shanghai Writers' Union:
My colleagues and I visited Minsk for the first time, but we really liked this city. In the near future we want to discuss the possibilities of bilateral cooperation. For example, we are talking about the visit of Belarusian writers to Shanghai to share writer's experience.

Elena Stelmakh, first deputy chairman of the Union of Writers of Belarus:
Today's meeting is the confirmation that we will take stock of how we have that going on, what books are published. We want to say that we do already have quite rich literary heritage, because the publishing house "Zvezda" is actively engaged in the translation and publication of works of Chinese authors.

In addition to the literary event, guests from China will visit significant cultural and historical places. Upon returning to their homeland the writers will share their impressions of Belarus with readers.
