Southeast Asia’s publishing scene continues to grow and evolve, but not without its unique challenges. For a region with such immensely rich cultures, histories, and languages, its many locally-celebrated writers and works often struggle to receive recognition on the international stage. These speakers discuss the importance of sharing Southeast Asia’s emerging voices with the world.

Penerbitan Asia Tenggara terus tumbuh dan berkembang, begitu pula dengan tantangan-tantangan uniknya. Untuk wilayah dengan budaya, sejarah, dan bahasa yang sangat kaya, banyak penulis dengan karya terkenalnya sering berjuang untuk mendapatkan pengakuan di panggung internasional. Para pembicara membahas betapa pentingnya berbagi suara-suara baru Asia Tenggara ke penjuru dunia.
