THESSALONIKI, Greece, May 11 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese book introducing ceramics was presented on Saturday at the ongoing Thessaloniki Book Fair held in northern Greek port city of Thessaloniki.

The book, titled "The World of Ceramics", was introduced by Jiangxi Publishing Group at the fair. Publishers from China also presented dozens of Chinese books on traditional culture, politics and children's literature.

Catherine Fragou, a Greek publisher, will be in charge of the promotion of the book in Greece and other European countries.

After signing the publishing agent agreement with Jiangxi Publishing Group, she told Xinhua that there are great potentials for Chinese books to be promoted in Greece because currently the percentage of Chinese books in Greek market is small due to translation and other difficulties.

Apart from China, publishers across Greece and other countries and regions also took part in the book fair.

The Thessaloniki Book Fair, established in 2004, is the most important annual event for the book and the professionals of the field organized in Greece.

The 16th Thessaloniki Book Fair is taking place from May 9 to 12. The Spanish-speaking countries are being honored this year.
