The holiday opened in the evening with a theatrical performance at the town’s wall. As befits such an event, official speeches came first.

The Deputy Prime Minister of Belarus, Anatoly Tozik, emphasised that this event, in the Year of Hospitality and the 70th anniversary of Belarus’ liberation, underlines the connection between history and modernity. He also paid attention that in the third millennium the book still worthily competes with other information carriers. Last year alone, over 11,000 books and brochures were released in Belarus, with a total circulation of 33 million copies. “He is really happy, who remembers their roots, while not forgetting about their native language,” he noted.

Alexander Radkov, First Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration, also addressed the guests and participants of the holiday. He voiced the greeting of the President of Belarus.

“Much is being done in the country to strengthen spiritual morality, as well as the creative and intellectual potential of Belarusian society, aimed at supporting the national book publishing industry. I will say without exaggeration that we observe not only State but also Presidential patronage of the book,” noted the Minister of Information of Belarus, Lilia Ananich, during an international round table discussion Consonance: Literature as a Mirror of the Epoch.

She reminded that this year, the country has organised the Belarusian Written Language Day for the 21st time, while, in 2017, we will be celebrating the 500th anniversary of Belarusian book printing.

Addressing foreign guests, the Minister added, “It’s very important that you come to us. It’s a wonderful opportunity to see with your own eyes into the pure mirror of Belarus with its beautiful city of Minsk and all corners of our country.”The word won’t ever die
