Chinese art troupe stages performance in Zambian capital

LUSAKA (Xinhua) -- China’s Nanjing Cultural and Art Troupe on Tuesday staged a performance in Lusaka, the Zambian capital, as part of the Chinese embassy’ commemoration of this year’s Labor Day.

The event, characterized by various Chinese opera, music, culture and pop by various Chinese groups based in Zambia, was welcomed by Zambia’s Minister of Tourism and Arts Charles Banda and Charge d’Affaires at the Chinese Embassy Chen Shijie.

The Zambian minister expressed gratitude towards the bilateral ties between the two countries, adding that the cultural cooperation was enhancing people-to-people relations.

He said the cultural cooperation between the two countries will go a long way in developing arts and culture in the southern African nation as well as help people of the two countries know the cultures of each other.

On his part, the Chinese envoy underscored the importance of culture as it helped people learn from each other.

He expressed delight that culture has become an important ingredient in cementing cooperation between the two countries, adding that the holding of the Chinese Temple Fair each year was enough evidence on the increased cultural cooperation.

He added that the friendship between the two countries has reached a new era over the years and that the holding of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation summit later this year will go a long way in cementing the cooperation.
