Beijing Publishing Group Co Ltd is the largest publishing institution in Beijing.

The firm started as a small bookstore in 1948 and has grown over the years to become a large publishing organization. 

Since 2015, it has been supervised by the State-owned Cultural Assets Supervision and Administration Office (SCASAO). 

Following almost 70 years of development, the group now has eight professional publishing houses, five periodicals offices and 15 culture-related subsidiary companies, including Beijing October Arts and Literature Publishing House, Beijing Juvenile & Children’s Publishing House, and Beijing Education Publishing House.

At present, the group has over 870 employees and publishes over 7,000 publications each year. The fixed price of its all publications exceeded 3.5 billion yuan ($505.54 million) in 2017, ranking fifth in China.

Adhering to the strategies of “going out” and “bringing in”, Beijing Publishing Group is actively looking to expand into overseas markets by participating in various international book exhibitions in cities such as Frankfurt, London and Moscow.

The group has also held book fairs and other cultural activities in New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia to showcase its strength in the publishing industry.
