100 millionth Bible printed (2)

A roundtable meeting was held on Friday, as Amity Foundation and its ecumenical partners discussed proposals for more social services in underdeveloped areas in China.

Stefan Moebs, deputy consul general of the German Consulate in Shanghai, is a Catholic and attends a church in Shanghai where both a Catholic priest and a Protestant minister from Germany provide services. He said he is pleased to see such ecumenical collaboration take place in China and encouraged the Amity Foundation to continue the good work of philanthropy in rural China.

Qiu, also secretary-general of the foundation, said its printing house reached an annual capacity of 10 million Bibles in 2010, as the company moved to a new site in 2008 with better equipment, streamlined procedures and rigorous quality-control measures.

With more than 70 sales outlets, the company has won trust and more orders from overseas, though its top priority remains meeting the demand of Chinese Christians, Qiu said.

A research and development team is tasked to identify customers' new interests and provide varied designs that appeal to diverse preferences, he said.

The company printed a special edition for the 100 millionth Bible, with a cover made of bamboo that symbolizes the fountain of life cherished in Christian belief that will continue to flourish in China.
