Thirty-eight titles about China, written by foreign authors, including Sinologists, professors, doctors, journalists and politicians, will be published soon. The authors pitched the topics and signed agreements with publishers in Beijing on Wednesday, at the ongoing 24th Beijing International Book Fair.

"These titles delve deep into Chinese society and life, and they have the potential to be best-selling books to global readers," said Xu Baofeng, with the Chinese Cullture Translation and Studies Support, adding that those books could get subsidies.

Forty-six Sinologists from 34 countries, who are in Beijing for a weeklong 2017 Sino-Foreign Literature Translation and Publishing Workshop, witnessed the signing ceremony, together with 12 winners of the Special Book Award of China, and representatives from more than 10 publishing houses.

The 38 titles were selected from 72 candidates, pitched by some 100 writers, covering topics like philosophy, politics, society, culture, literature and arts and encompassing 19 languages.
