A MOMENT OF PRIDE!
It’s a moment of pride and great honour for PHI Learning that its Chairman and Managing Director, Mr. Asoke K. Ghosh, has been conferred an honorary title of President Emeritus by the Federation of Indian Publishers (FIP). This prestigious title has been awarded to Mr. Ghosh on joint proposal and recommendation of the members of FIP to acknowledge his services and contribution to the Federation and the publishing sector as a whole.
As a key founder member and the Past President of FIP, Mr. Ghosh has fulfilled his responsibilities and duties conscientiously, which has been appreciably recognized by the Federation from time to time. For his selfless contribution towards education and book publishing industry, the Federation conferred on him the Life Time Achievement Award in 2012, besides innumerable prestigious awards and laurels including Most Distinguished Publisher Award and Saraswati Samman.
Mr. Ghosh is the first Asian to become the Vice President of International Publishers Association (IPA). In 1991, IPA bestowed on him Outstanding Leadership Award. He was Instrumental in bringing the 24th IPA Congress to New Delhi in 1992 for the first time, and played a major role in organizing and successfully leading 32nd IPA Congress in February 2018. It was largely due to Mr. Ghosh’s effort that Delhi was declared World Book Capital for the year 2003 by UNESCO, and today Indian publishing has emerged as a significant market among the leading players at the global platform.
