10th edition of the Abidjan International Book Fair

The International Book Fair of Abidjan (SILA) has opened on 16 May and will bring together authors, readers, publishers, pupils, teachers and many other people for five days. The Bureau Ivoirien du Droit d’auteur (BURIDA), the Ivorian RRO in membership of IFRRO, is a partner of the book fair, which is an important cultural event and a celebration of literature in the country.

IFRRO attended the book fair in 2016 and continues to support the work done by BURIDA, the publishers’ association ASSEDI and writers’ associations AECI and AJECI to implement collective licensing in Côte d’Ivoire.
