The five-day 25th Tirana Book Fair came to an end in the capital of Albania on Sunday, with some 90 publishing houses participating in the fair.

Among the many books on display were works covering China's politics, economy, culture and education, attracting a large number of readers who opened their wallets to purchase them.

During the book fair, the Albanian version of 2020 China's Battle Against the Coronavirus: A Daily Log Jan. 23 - Feb. 23 2020 was also launched.

The book, originally published by China's Foreign Languages Press, was translated and published by the Fan Noli Publishing House of Albania.

Chinese Ambassador to Albania Zhou Ding said that the book told stories of Chinese people fighting on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, and demonstrated the fearless spirit of the Chinese people to unite as one and overcome difficulties together.

Zhou said that over the past few years, Fan Noli has translated and published more than 40 Chinese books, covering various subjects such as politics, economy, and culture, and effectively promoted cultural exchanges between China and Albania.

"I look forward to seeing more excellent Chinese books published for Albanian readers, and hope that our Albanian friends can better understand the real China through reading," Zhou said at the fair.
