Promoting Development through Culture and Heritage

Throughout the past decade, statistics, indicators and data on the cultural sector, as well as operational activities have underscored that culture can be a powerful driver for development, with community-wide social, economic and environmental impacts.
2 Of particular relevance is the cultural sector’s contribution to the economy and poverty alleviation.

Cultural heritage, cultural and creative industries, sustainable cultural tourism, and cultural infrastructure can serve as strategic tools for revenue generation, particularly in developing countries given their often-rich cultural heritage and substantial labour force.

Culture enables sustainable development
Culture-sensitive approaches have demonstrated concretely how one can address both the economic and human rights dimensions of poverty at the same time, while providing solutions to complex development issues in an innovative and multisectoral manner. Indeed, culture has a transformative power on existing development approaches, helping to broaden the terms of the current development debate and to make development much more relevant to the needs of people.

Nigeria's vast and rich cultural heritage should be strategically re-positioned to partner tourism as its driver to lift the Nigerian economy. Tourism cannot effectively flourish without the cultural components. The desire to position culture and tourism as the lever of Nigeria's economic growth and development rests with the Ministry of Information and Culture as it must plan to mainstream both sectors into a monolithic entity to galvanize national economic development.

The effort is in line with the understanding that no nation can really excel without the inclusion of its cultural and tourism parameters in state affairs. Fortunately for the Ministry, cultural tourism had long been identified as Nigeria's area of high comparative advantage.


Nigeria stands a great chance of surviving the current economic meltdown facing the entire globe if it could focus more on cultural tourism. To this end, Nigeria can forge a solid partnership with symbiotic foreign countries for culture and tourism in developing and marketing their potentials to boost patronage of local and foreign tourists. If collaboration and partnership are cultivated between performing artistes, museums and countries that are blessed with natural and cultural endowments, the resultant cultural tourism synergy will be presented as exciting performances at vital tourist destinations across the country. As a significant tourist destination, museums are the cultural central and memory bank of any nation, including Nigeria.

In a globalized economy, cultural sensitivity is essential. Understanding and knowing about cultural differences is a crucial skill for succeeding in business.

Understanding language nuances, etiquette and cultural time management differences can help you navigate many complex interactions. Don't let a deal fall apart due to cultural misunderstandings: Do some research and be open to new cultural experiences and expectations when doing business across borders. Thus our reason to collaborate with African Chamber of Commerce in Scandinavia to organize Business Forum and workshops during the Nigeria Cultural Carnival in Scandinavia.
