IBNA– Secretary of Tehran Publishers and Booksellers Union Mohammd Mahdi Fakhrizadeh said that showcases for books are one of the ways to promote reading and increase revenue for publishers.
According to IBNA correspondent, in a meeting with the Iranian literati and publishers at Enghelab Hotel in Tehran on Monday, November 22, the Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Seyyed Reza Salehi Amiri said: “The publishing industry and its unions should tell us which of the demands of the publishing industry are a priority to be considered by us.”
Intending to investigate the issues, problems and challenges that the industry has been confronted with for years, we deal with them through a technical approach from the perspective of the experts in various fields.
Speaking to IBNA, secretary of Tehran Publishers and Booksellers Union Mohammd Mahdi Fakhrizadeh stated: “I believe the Social Security Organization must cooperate with the publishing industry and renew the expiration date of insurance of the employees covered by the employers, as the employer might be on a journey or short of money at the time.”
“We have frequently pointed out this issue through correspondent, but have not reached a conclusion. I hope that the new Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance will pay special attention to resolve the problem,” he added.
