German Book Office (GBO) New Delhi, which began its operations in 2008, is a joint venture between the Frankfurt Book Fair and the Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany.
As such it has a dual mandate of promoting the commercial activities of Frankfurt Book Fair in the South Asian region along with the cultural aspect of promoting the exchange of German and Indian (including neighboring countries) literature between the two regions. We work with partner across the board, some of which include publishing firms, publishing serve providers, government agencies, cultural institutions, book fairs, international agencies and educational institutes. We also work with individuals in various capacities such as translators, authors, editors and illustrators.
The German Book office is funded by the Federal Foreign Office
In balancing both culture and commerce, we have set out clear aims to achieve both.
