I found the following pattern.
Drop the first and last letters from the names of the capitals then ...
Samoa = A pi a = number
Egypt = C air o = gas
Philippines = M anil a = actor (Anil Kapoor)
Czech = P ragu e = sauce
Some other examples are:
Albanian country (T iran a)
Greek adverb (A then s)
Senegalese abbreviation (D aka r)
Also, the title is related to the pattern. (thanks to a hint from OP)
"Cultural center" suggests capital cities. Also "center" asks focusing on the middle of the words.
