Welcome to the 2nd Asia and Oceania Regional IBBY Congress. IBBY Malaysia or MBBY is pleased to have the opportunity to organise and host this Congress and to welcome participants from around the world to Putrajaya to an exciting event which brings together children’s book activists, researchers, educators, writers, illustrators, publishers, librarians, storytellers, literature experts, book promoters and policy makers from around the world to discuss topical issues of our concern. This first Congress was held in Bali Indonesia on 23-26 May 2013 focusing on how to strengthen Asia-Oceania IBBY.

Our theme "One World, Many Stories" highlights the importance of the richness of cultural diversity in Asia-Oceania and recognises the role of all those involved in children’s book and literature in shaping the ways in which we respond to this richness. We look forward to having the opportunity to explore these issues with you and to meeting you here in Putrajaya on 12–15 May 2015.

Malaysia is a particularly appropriate place to celebrate this theme as it is known for its rich fusion of cultures and as a home to a unique potpourri of Asian cultures especially Malay, Chinese, Indian—along with many indigenous  and ethnic groups.  Our popular tourism slogan, “Malaysia Truly Asia”, is a reflection of the nation’s rich cultural and heritage diversity, as well as its peace, stability and warm Malaysian hospitality.

This congress is for participants to openly discuss strategies for meeting the informational, educational and  literacy needs of children and young adults and their families. In this gathering, your presence and contributions to the theme will further enrich this setting as a place of learning. We look forward to welcoming you in person to the Congress.
