The two experts, who have been sent by Ministry of Culture, will conduct a study on projects in the pipeline and in execution of the organisation.

The agenda includes meetings with the officials of the organisation and the Ministry of Culture of Gabon.

The visit follows the request the Director-General of UNESCO, Audrey Azoulay, made to the Angolan President, João Lourenço, during a visit to the headquarters of the organisation in Paris (France) in May this year.

At the meeting, the head of UNESCO expressed the need to revive CICIBA, due to its importance in promoting studies and research on the cultural aspects of the African region.

Headquartered in Gabon, the Bantu Research and Civilization Center was created in 1983.

CICIBA comprised Angola, Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Sao Tome and Principe, Rwanda, the Central African Republic (CAR), the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Zambia, Gabon and Republic of the Congo.

The institution is tasked with promoting dialogue between cultures and promote human development based on cultural freedom.
