According to Mario Lopes Martins, Guinea-Bissau’s Secretary of State for Youth, Culture, and Sports, this meeting of CPLP was an opportunity for the eight member countries to strengthen their cultural cooperation, further harmonize their cultural policies, and create a space for cooperation and reflection to define a common strategy for preserving their common cultural heritage.
