BEIJING, Sept. 29 (Xinhua) -- Cuba, the guest of honor country for this year's Beijing International Book Fair (BIBF), has unveiled online its best works from the fields of literature and culture at the ongoing event that commenced on Sept. 26.

Themed "Stories told from Cuba," the online activities include Cuban copyright, cultural and art exhibitions, and a series of literary events titled "Cuba's Night."

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between China and Cuba.

Cuban ambassador to China Carlos Miguel Pereira said Cuba's participation in the 27th BIBF as the guest of honor country shows that the friendship between the two sides has a long history and the cultures of the two countries nourish each other.

He hoped to expand bilateral cooperation in the field of publication and deepen cultural exchanges and friendship between the two countries.

This is the first time the BIBF is held both online and offline since its inauguration in 1986.
