Local representatives will discuss cultural exchange alongside their counterparts from Botswana and Zimbabwe, while Loren Yan from the Chinese embassy in Windhoek will address cultural exchange between China and Africa, and the Malaysian High Commission will shed light on other Asian expectations.
On Thursday evening, performances by several of Namibia's most popular artists will electrify the audience.

This while the stage is located near stands dedicated to culinary delights to ensure that the foodies leave happy too.
