FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry) has always considered books as a valuable media for the development and promotion of human values. Books help in documentation of new ideas, preservation and knowledge communication and the holistic development of an individual. The Covid-19 pandemic has had a disastrous effect on the book publishing industry in India. FICCI aims to give a new status and identity to the Indian publishing industry through this webinar.
