About the Ministerial

The Sixth Inter-American Meeting of Ministers of Culture and Highest Appropriate Authorities was held in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on August 12 and 13, 2014.

This Culture Ministerial Meeting was an excellent opportunity to strengthen cooperation and exchange views on the proposed central theme Cultural Interdependence in the Context of Globalization, that focused on the following three sub-themes:

  • Cultural entrepreneurship: A tool for innovation and social inclusion;
  • Local development through culture; and
  • Strengthening inter-sectoral linkages:  tourism and culture

Each sub-theme had a panelists from government, private sector, academia and other subject matter experts.
