BU­L­AWAYO, 13 Jan­uary 1991. — The Zim­babwe In­ter­na­tional Trade Fair is to spend $700 000 on im­prove­ments in time for this year’s Trade Fair to be held from April 25 to May 1.

In an in­ter­view the gen­eral man­ager, Mr Gra­ham Rowe, said the money is be­ing used to up­grade sev­eral ex­hi­bi­tion halls as book­ings for the fair have been ex­cep­tion­ally heavy and done much ear­lier than in pre­vi­ous years.

Over $4 mil­lion was spent last year on the con­struc­tion of one of the halls.

“Twelve new pavil­ions are cur­rently be­ing con­structed for lo­cal and out­side ex­hibitors who have made firm book­ings for par­tic­i­pa­tion,” he said.

Mr Rowe said con­struc­tion work was be­ing slowed down by the crit­i­cal short­age of wa­ter and con­struc­tion ma­te­rial faced by the city.

Due to the wa­ter ra­tioning ex­er­cise im­posed by the city coun­cil, ZITF was sup­ply­ing con­trac­tors with bore­hole wa­ter.
