Arabic literature will be the centre of attention at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2004. In order to strengthen the literary exchange between Germany and the Arabic nations even more, the Goethe Institute in Cairo has launched an online Internet project featuring numerous translations of German and Arabic literature. The programme's funding will also include travel scholarships for German and Arabic writers.
