Malawi-China cultural agreement, Article 2 (c): Cooperation in holding of exhibitions on culture and art in each other's country
The main objective of the policy is to ensure that the two countries are able to appreciate the diverse cultural expressions present in each country. The agreement was also introduced in 2010.
Notable events held under this agreement were the Chinese Spring festivals held at the Bingu International Conference Centre in Lilongwe, Malawi on 8th January, 2012 and 10th February 2013. The festivals were attended by both Chinese and Malawian nationals. At the festivals both Chinese and Malawian performing groups exhibited their performances. Malawi further participated at the World Expo 2010, in shanghai China where the country was represented by the National Dance Troupe.
Challenges identified in the implementation of this measure:
The main challenge has been availability of financial resources for the Government of Malawi to regularly participate or facilitate exhibitions in either country towards enhancing appreciation of each other's cultures.
