Some quotes:

"Museums should reflect a message of tolerance and peace, of respect for all cultures and for the environment."

"I commend CAM on its initiatives to enrich the lives of people by educating them about their history and heritage through the development of museums, because I know that this will have a profound effect, particularly in the developing countries."

"We will be service oriented, we will be innovative, we will aim at encouraging professional excellence in our museums."

"One world, many world views; common ground, unique cultures; tolerance and peace; museums must have a broader vision."
