Who We Are

The Association of Romanian Publishers (AER) was founded in 1991 and it is the main professional association of Romanian publishing houses, gathering together publishers from all fields of cultural interest.

The goal of the association is to represent and to defend the interests of Romanian publishers before the grand public, legislative institutions, public powers, other organizations and associations, the promotion of real values of Romanian culture and spirituality, by actively participating at the repositioning of the relationship between acts of culture and the public to whom they are addressed.

The mission of the association is to promote Romanian publishing, quality reading and writing, to facilitate readers’ access to books, from both material and informational standpoints, thus making its contribution to the free circulation of ideas, as well as to the integration of Romanian culture and language into the world values circuit.
