All is set for the Harare International Festival of Arts (HIFA) 18th edition scheduled from the 1st to the 6th of May.

The festival which showcases local, regional and international arts and culture in a programme of theatre, dance and music is a great opportunity for the country to display its riches and attract investors.

HIFA executive director Maria Wilson said Zimbabwe is open for business, so the idea is being open to each other as people from various countries are coming.

Chairman of HIFA board trustees Muchadeyi Masundah said the carnival will raise the profile of the country and applauded stakeholders and partners for their support.

The 18th edition of 2018 Harare International Festival of Arts starts on the 1st of May and will run under the theme “We Count”.
