Croatia, China sign cultural cooperation programme

Croatia and China on Monday signed a programme for cooperation in culture and art for the period from 2016 to 2020. 

The document was signed by Croatian Deputy Culture Minister Ana Lederer and China's Deputy Culture Minister Dong Wei after visiting Chinese officials held talks with Culture Minister Zlatko Hasanbegovic.

The programme will help step up cooperation between the two countries in culture and art, notably within the 16+1 initiative, a programme for the cultural cooperation between China and central and eastern European countries, said Assistant Culture Minister Iva Hraste Soco.

The programme is designed to promote reciprocal participation in festivals and other art events, translation of literary works and their publication, and direct cooperation between theatres and other cultural institutions, organisations and associations, primarily libraries, archives, book fairs, museums and galleries.

As part of their visit to Croatia, the Chinese officials will visit cultural, scientific and educational institutions in Zagreb as well as the Plitvice Lakes National Park.
