Objectifs clefs de la mesure:

To promote respect and understanding for other cultures hence promoting cultures to flourish in their diversity cross cultural skills in a globalised world. It is fundamental that nations as they interact they understand each other’s values and norms for the relationships to last. Cultural exchange also adds value to lives by inspiring new forms of artistic expression. Visitors create new networks and learn how to talk and interact with people from other cultures. In addition, cultural exchange programmes helps individuals to adjust and learn about new environments.

Principale caractéristique de la mesure:

The main feature of the measure is to promote respect and deepening understanding for other cultures while strengthening relations. The more people learn to cooperate and collaborate there is mutual understanding of each other’s way of life which then translates to promotion of international friendship and goodwill. In learning institutions such as the Midlands State University, the university enrolls international students and a Culture day is set aside to celebrate the varied cultures paving a way to improve the cultural foundation of everyone.  

Résultats attendus de la mise en œuvre de la mesure:

A better understanding, respect for other cultures and signing of Cultural Exchange agreements. In 2014, the then Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture Honourable Andrew Langa on the 22nd of September 2015, signed an exchange agreement with Chinese Culture Minister Cai Wu. The three year exchange programme that was signed at Grand Hotel in Beijing was in accordance with cultural agreement that was signed between China and Zimbabwe on May 14, 1981 in Beijing. According to the agreement in arts and culture both countries will periodically facilitate cultural trips for a government delegation (ministry policy makers and senior arts and culture programme administrators and managers) of four to six persons. Moreover, it was agreed that both countries would send a performing art troupe not exceeding 20 persons to visit and perform in either country for 10days as often as possible
