Rabat* – Morocco’s Fathallah Oualalou
has won the “Special Book of China Award” for his book “China and Us: A
Response to the Second Passage.”*

Oualalou, the former minister of economy and finance, along with 14 other
foreign authors, publishers, and translators won the award during a
ceremony at the 25th annual Beijing International Book Fair

The award recognized the 15 authors for covering Chinese culture in their
works. Oualalou was the only African to receive the award.

Oualalou’s book, which was published in the French language by the Arab
Culture Center in Casablanca, discussed how China has positioned itself as
a powerful country, succeeding in just a third of a century to rise from a
developing country to an emerging economy to a global economic power.

The minister emphasized in his book that China’s success was caused by
multiple factors, including its attachment to territorial integrity,
culture, and history, reported Maghreb Arab Press (MAP).

Other authors who won the award were Marianne Bastid-Bruguière (France),
Arakawa Kiyohide (Japan), and Kulteva Umut Baimuratovna (Kazakhstan).

In the category of publishers, Bujar Hudhri (Albania), Andrzej Kacperski
(Poland), and Zimarin Oleg (Russia) also won the prize.

In the category of translators, the award was given to Kalmar Eva
(Hungary), Stburova Jelena (Latvia), Sundar Nath Bhattarai (Nepal), Balan
Luminita (Romania), and Murtaza Karshiboev (Uzbekistan).

The 25th annual Beijing International Book Fair opened on Wednesday and
will continue until August 26.

This year also marks Morocco’s participation as the first African guest of
honor with 1,000 copies of books

The Moroccan exhibit also features musical performances to showcase
Morocco’s cultural heritage.

Morocco’s agenda at the book fair includes academic seminars and
conferences, including a symposium on translation and language policy under
the theme “The Road to Translation.”
