As one of the earliest publishers to introduce foreign literature into China, The Commercial Press launched 100 book titles under the Chinese Translation of World Literature series at the book fair, which are classic works from different countries and regions, such as Persian Letters, Crime and Punishment, and A Thousand and One Nights, covering literary forms ranging from poetry, fiction and theater, to essays and biographies.

The five Revitalization Library collections became a highlight for Zhonghua Book Co at the fair. As a significant national cultural project initiated in 2017, the "library" is themed on the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, and selects important literature pertaining to the national revival, dating to the Opium War in 1840. It profoundly reveals the historical logic, the lineage of thought and the cultural context for China in its march toward rejuvenation.
