The International Literary Symposium is a platform for strengthening relationships. This was stressed the day before by the Minister of Information of Belarus Alexander Karlyukevich. The symposium was held within the framework of the 26th International Book Fair. Several landmark publishing projects were presented at once: the new volume of the «History of Belarusian Statehood», the book «In the rhythm of flying years. Essays on the history of the Komsomol of Belarus», as well as «Sport of the highest standard» – a guide to Minsk, a thematic calendar and a map that will help prepare for the Second European Games. Today at the exhibition a joint project of the Academy of Music and the Belarusian Encyclopedia named after Petrus Brovka – «Organs of Belarus» will be presented. Book results will be summed up in the evening at the «Art of the Book» competition.
