LUSAKA, July 10 (Xinhua) -- The Zambian government said on Wednesday that it was keen to learn from South Korea on the development of art and culture.

Minister of Tourism and Arts Charles Banda said Zambia has a lot to learn from South Korea especially on how the Asian nation has developed its economy through diversification and appreciation of arts.

In remarks delivered during the 2019 Korea-Zambia celebratory concert, the Zambian minister said the southern African nation was looking forward to learning the best practices from South Korea on how to maximize the local heritage sites for the benefit of local communities.

He further revealed that the two countries will soon sign a memorandum of understanding aimed at promoting social, political and economic development.

Cho Jaichel, South Korea Ambassador to Zambia, said his country has a lot to earn from Zambia in terms of cultural and tribal co-existence.

He said his government will continue working with the Zambian authorities in fostering development and cultural exchanges in a bid to boost the tourism sectors of the two countries.
