National Book Centre of Greece

EKEBI is a private non-profit legal entity established in 1994 by the Ministry of Culture to implement national policy to promote books and reading. Publishers, authors, translators, librarians and booksellers are all involved in decision-making and work closely to achieve the Centre’s objectives.

As an organisation reporting to the Ministry of Culture, EKEBI takes numerous initiatives and actions and runs special programmes to bolster the book sector overall and all key players in the chain leading to the creation of a book: authors, translators, illustrators, editors, publishers, typographers, booksellers, librarians, literary agents, critics and of course readers.

Its objective is to play a coordinating role among these players, to create new structures to support books, to offer information and support the players involved, to record new developments in the sector and to make a substantive contribution to establishing a friendly environment for people from the world of books.
