4 Opinions on the Chinese ebook market

The Beijing Review posted 4 interviews about ebooks in China. Okay, they only translated one question from each interview, but I think it’s still worth a read. Here are some excerpts:

Ge Xiaozheng, Vice President of the Chinese Writers’ Publishing Group:

E-books will not replace print publications, as large numbers of readers are accustomed to reading print materials, but we must embrace the electronic trend without reservation.

Ma Jie, Director of Information with the People’s Publishing House:

Print publishing’s dominance is set to wane, but is unlikely to perish. Chances are e-books will coexist with paper books in the very long term, and each form will enjoy comparable market shares. But the influence of e-books will grow and they will eventually play a dominant role.
