Many Chinese publishers are coming to us because they want to put their entire catalogue in the Chinese language into these global distribution channels.
Beijing, China (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
At this year’s Beijing Internal Book Fair, Publish on Demand Global (PODG) signed an agreement with Anhui Press and Publications Bureau to import a slate of Chinese titles into the global marketplace.
Anhui publishing enterprises exhibited over 3,000 publications at BIBF, including print and electronic books, audio and video products and new formats of publications. The publishing enterprises of Anhui have made great efforts to reach out to the global marketplace through the export of copyrights, publications, cultural and electronic media products and co-publishing. This new agreement with PODG will greatly further that initiative.
According to PODG CEO Robert Fletcher, Chinese publishers want to target the 50 million Chinese who live abroad and in Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore and throughout Asia and the world. "Many Chinese publishers are coming to us because they want to put their entire catalogue in the Chinese language into these global distribution channels."
PODG, known as the 'Publisher’s Publisher', currently provides services to approximately 10,000 authors and publishers around the world, through its partners and affiliates. PODG’s goal is to assist author and publishers in penetrating global markets with print books, ebooks, mobile books and tablet books. It specializes in safely and securely bringing authors and publishers into the US markets as well as bringing US books and publishers to the world through its global network of publishers, printers, distributors and book marketers.
While at BIBF, Mr. Fletcher and PODG exhibited and arranged distribution of catalogues from publishers around the world, including SBPRA, his U.S. publishing company with 5000 published authors. "Our authors want to reach the China market. The number of English speakers here means that that are more English readers in China than the population of many countries and this is a very viable market for authors and publishers around the world."
