Venezuela and Dominica have embarked on an initiative aimed at highlighting the similarities between the people of both countries.
The Venezuelan Embassy held a forum on Monday under the theme “We Are Of The Same Root” with the purpose of informing the audience on the things that Venezuelans and Dominicans have in common.
The Teachers, Francisco Estrada and Soel Andrade, demonstrated with videos, that the culture of the people of African Venezuelan descent is very similar to that of Dominican people. Ambassador Pirela also contributed to that presentation.
The forum was attended by Dominica’s Minister for Culture, Justina Charles, Dominica’s Ambassador to Venezuela Philbert Aaron, The Cuban and Brazillian Ambassadors to Dominica, along with several guests.
After the conference, attendees congratulated the forum members and it was agreed that this effort between the Venezuelan Embassy and the Government of Dominica would continue and that next year a group of Dominicans would visit Venezuela to continue the process.
