The LIBF Trust was set up in 2006 by four leading members of the book trade in Pakistan. They are: Zubair Saeed, Najam Sethi, Saleem Malik and Mohammad Faisal.
The aims and objectives of the LIBFT, which is a non-profit NGO, are to promote the cause of book publishing, book selling and book reading in the country.
It will do this by promoting and holding book fairs and exhibitions at home and abroad and encouraging its members to participate in them. It will also help the Pakistan Publishers and Booksellers Association and other trade bodies to interact with the government and other foreign institutions with a view to resolving the problems of the book trade and cementing unity within its ranks.
It will actively lead the fight against piracy and copyright infringement.
