FRANKFURT: Major international publishing houses are seeking to make India a hub attracted by skill of Indian printers, low production cost and world
class editorial and production services.
An indication of this has been the book publishing landscape, which has changed dramatically in recent years, with major publishers preferring India to launch their new bestsellers.
"Significant improvements in the quality of printing and production, innovative ideas and skills of Indian printers and low production costs have made India an attractive location for investments by publishers from around the world," said Ajit Kumar, India's Consul General in in the ongoing Frankfurt Book Fair here.
Releasing the special edition of "India Perspectives" at the second day of the book fair, Kumar said, "The book publishing landscape in India has changed dramatically in recent years and the industry was quick to make use of the opportunities for improving the quality of production by inducting sophisticated technologies for printing and binding."
The special issue of the External Affairs Ministry's monthly publication "India Perspectives" is devoted to India's book publishing industry.
The October edition of the magazine, which is published in eleven foreign languages and four Indian languages, provides a fascinating glimpse into the world of book publishing in India by tracing the development of publishing in English and other languages during the past decades.
