When the Franco-Namibian Cultural Centre was created, the government provided the land and the French Government financed the construction of the building.
Speaking to the Economist at the signing ceremony earlier this week, the Minister of Works and Transport, Hon Erkki Nghimtina said the government decided a long time ago to transfer the land to the centre with the aim that both countries should benefit from the respective cultures.
