Egypt launched on Thursday its first Afro-Chinese Arts & Folklore Festival in a bid to draw tourists back to the North-African country.
Some 18 African countries including Nigeria participated in the festival, organized by the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism.
The six-day event aims to strengthen ties between African countries and China, and will celebrate the cultural heritage of the participating countries.
The festival includes film screening, folkloric dance performance as well as cuisine from the different countries and handicrafts.
Team Nigeria was represented by our very own Carnival Calabar troupe.
