For his part, David Taylor spoke about the experience of working with the Sharjah Publishing City Free Zone, explaining that after his visit to Sharjah, he realized the strength of the emirate and its potential to overcome global publishing challenges. He said: “Before working with Sharjah, we needed two to three weeks to provide a book that was requested in the markets. African and Asian books, and today it is provided in just two days, so the print-on-demand business model was more effective and stronger by taking advantage of the infrastructure and services provided by the Sharjah Publishing City Free Zone.”
