The 31st Hong Kong Book Fair ended on Tuesday, attracting nearly 830,000 visitors despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

The week-long event, organized by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, featured an extensive selection of literary works, renowned international authors and diverse cultural activities.

More than 700 exhibitors showcased a wide range of books and literary products.

HKTDC Deputy Executive Director Benjamin Chau said the gradual recovery of the local economy will lead to the return of more physical public shows, and the HKTDC is preparing to stage more such exhibitions to give a further boost to the recovery.
