Germany's Guest of Honour appearance at the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair (May 23-29, 2021) will be postponed by one year. The postponement became necessary due to the uncertain pandemic situation. Germany will however be represented with a booth at the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair in 2021 and will feature a hybrid cultural and professional programme.
