Zimbabwe Tourism Authority logoThe Zimbabwe Tourism Authority (ZTA) received a bail-out from the government for saving Sanganai/Hlanganani World Tourism Expo. The annual tourism fair had been suspended due to lack of funds. However, ZTA’s CEO Karikoga Kaseke said that the Zimbabwean government has given out funds for offsetting the debt and allow for its preparations for commencement.

Karikoga said, “The Ministry of Finance has also provided us with enough funds to start preparations for Sanganai/Hlanganani this year’s edition of the expo.”

Dates for the expo have been extended to 27th to 30th September this year in Bulawayo at the Zimbabwe International Trade Fair to allow for adequate preparations and marketing of the expo.

The Zimbabwean tourism sector is expected to contribute about 11% to the national GDP and tourism minister Walter Mzembi has set an ambitious goal of $5 billion tourism economy by 2020.
