Publishing and Technology 2012

Paju Book City

South Korea

This award was given to the Korean Paju Bookcity which has a vision to use information technology to advance cultural development. Its success, internationally high standards of architecture coupled with its eco-friendly operating environment convinced the Scientific Committee that it is a sterling example of technology in use worthy of highlighting in the Arab Region.

About The Publishing House

The Paju Bookcity’s vision came to life in 1989 when the founders combined all the processes involved in producing a book - planning, design, printing, logistics, and distribution - under one roof for ease of access.
