He added, “Exhibitions is an opportunity to motivate people to read books throughout the country; in line with promoting and developing the cultural of reading book, the book subsidy system has been launched in the country which hopefully can help publishers.”
 
The managing director of Iran’s Cultural Exhibitions, pointing to good reception of publishers to attend the exhibition, said, “Due to the limited space of the exhibition, we were unfortunately not able to give service to more publishers, but the authorities should take the necessary measures in this respect. However, good side programs have been arranged at the exhibition.”
 
Regarding the status of book and book reading in the country, Shahramnia pointed out, “Expensive paper and exchange rate are one of the main problems from which the book market suffers, and the domestic economic conditions have caused the books can have less place in the family basket.”
 
Stating that book fairs are the opportunity to highlight the cultural of book reading in the country, he said, “The book fair was not to be held this year because of the economic conditions, but the managing directors of provincial culture and Islamic culture followed up and managed to allocate subsidy so that the book fair could be held in the Province of Chaharmahal Bakhtiyari province.”
