Angola and Algeria discussed on Thursday in Luanda the need to strengthen cooperation in the field of cultural heritage, film and audiovisual, cultural industries and museums, with an emphasis on the training of officials.

Angolan Culture Minister Carolina Cerqueira told the Algerian ambassador Larbi Latrach that the two countries agreed on the need for the search of experience in the various domains, but always with the training in focus, taking into account the need of Angola in restoration of monuments and sites.

Carolina Cerqueira also requested Algerian support for the application of the Kwanza Corridor, Tchitundu Hulu and Cuito Cuanavale to world heritage.

She also referred to the meeting scheduled for March 2018 on the project to build a memorial on the struggle against apartheid and slavery in SADC, involving Angola, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.

The minister said the project aims to rescue the history and memory of the liberation processes of the countries of the region.

On his turn, the Algerian diplomat highlighted the importance of exchanges between the two countries, stressing that the link between peoples begins in the cultural field. Enditem
