The International ISBN Agency warmly congratulates CERLALC (El Centro Regional para el Fomento del Libro en América Latina y el Caribe) on the 50th anniversary of its original foundation.

In 1966 UNESCO agreed on a programme to encourage book production and circulation in developing world countries including recommending centres focused on Latin America and other regions of the world. A formal agreement creating the regional centre in Bogotá, Colombia was signed in April 1971.

The International ISBN Agency recently concluded its 2021 Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Regrettably, for the second year in succession we were compelled to hold the meeting as an exclusively online event because of the ongoing situation regarding Covid-19. As in 2020, we took the opportunity of the online nature of the event to run the AGM on three occasions across the different time zones. This year, the sessions of the AGM took place twice on Wednesday 22 September and once on Thursday 23 September 2021.
