After the end of the show, the festival's presenter, the poet Mr. Hajar Boutani, spoke and thanked the administration of the Church of Life which is an important partner in extending bridges of culture between the International Cultural Academy and members of society interested in culture and literature.

The reasons for choosing  the 23rd of April to be the World Book Day is because it marks the anniversary of the departure of two flags of international literature (Theipantz and Shakespeare), who left our world on April 23, 1616, so we set it on this exact date to honor and commemorate their memory.

At the same time, the Kurdish Press Day coincides with the World Book Day, where the day of April 22 was set for the Kurdish press, which is the day that the Kurdish prince Miqdad Miqdad Badrakhan coincides with the first Kurdish newspaper in the name of Kurdistan, and its first number was issued in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, and that was on April 22, 1898. So on this occasion we would like also to congratulate the Kurdish journalists onthis day.
