The Sharjah Emirate of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will be the honoree of the 20th Thessaloniki International Book Fair (May 16-19), TIF-HELEXPO said, after its leadership met with a delegation of Sharjah Book Authority (SBA) on Wednesday.

The delegation's visit follows a recent agreement signed between the Hellenic Foundation for Culture (EIP) and the Authority. The emirate, considered UAE's cultural capital, will use Pavilion 13 at the HELEXPO centre.

TIF-HELEXPO president Tasos Tzikas said it was a great honour to be visited by the delegation, while CEO of SBA and Sharjah's Book Fair Ahmed Al Ameri underlined that the best way to build bridges is through culture.
