The CABARET team visited the venue of the first Asian–African or Afro–Asian Conference (Bandung Conference), which was held in April 1955 in Bandung, Indonesia with the participation of 29 member countries which represented more than 50% of world’s population. The conference aimed to promote Afro-Asian economic and cultural cooperation and to oppose colonialism or neo-colonialism by any nation. The conference was an important step towards the eventual creation of the Non-Aligned Movement. Like CABARET, the conference was an opportunity for strengthening regional cooperation.
