    Background: The African Cultural Ministers Conference ended in Togo on Saturday (7 May) evening with an unanimous acceptance of the need to reaffirm Africa's cultural heritage. The meeting took place in Lome, the country's capital.

    SYNOPSIS: Ministers of Culture from 31 African countries and representatives of 12 various international organisations attended the meeting. M. Koffi Voule-Frititi, Togo's Minister of Culture was elected President.

    During the conference M. Voule-Frititi told the Ministers that Africa's liberation will depend on the affirmation of its cultural values. Alteration from these cultural values had to be prevented.
