Ms. Jiang showed that China's print book market continues to grow at 2-digit growth rate. In addition to positive growth of print book market, eBook and audiobook platforms have also innovated and developed unique sales models in China amid the intensive market competition environment. Global partners shall see opportunities for copyright cooperation in the China’s book market, where sales of imported books continue to grow and Chinese publishers have in recent years focused on quality rather than quantity of publications. According to OpenBook, sales of imported books by foreign authors have slowed down in the last two years. A large number of excellent works by domestic writers, such as Yang Hongying, Shen Shixi and Li Miao have caught young readers’ eyes amid the book market. Reading the works of excellent Chinese writers is the best way to understand Chinese culture. Ms. Jiang put forward the idea that all the copyright managers shall introduce excellent Chinese books to their global sales networks, connecting to publishing houses all over the world.
