comment:
"A paper presented to an international colloquium "Culture and Creativity as Vectors of Development" held in Brussels, April 2-3, 2009. The author provides an overview of the current state of book publishing in the ACP countries of francophone Africa, and their impact as an integral part of the cultural industries in these countries. She examines a number of successful collaborative initiatives such as co-publication projects and training programmes, as well as collaborative ventures that unfortunately have failed for a number of reasons, such as the book marketing collective Afrilivres that aimed to provide a showcase for African books and serve as a distribution outlet both within Africa and in the countries of the North. The author offers a number of suggestions how the book sector might be revitalized and strengthened by support from ACP and EU States and the European Commission." (Hans M. Zell, Publishing, Books & Reading in Sub-Saharan Africa, 3d ed. 2008, nr. 2541)
