The Ministry of Culture has already guaranteed the availability of funds, without, however, advancing the values, but considering that they are necessary for the celebration without constraints and within its real value and cultural weight.

The delay in the delivery of financial support to groups, according to Minister Carolina Cerqueira, is due to the macroeconomic situation in the country.

Carolina Cerqueira calls on the groups for a commitment to creativity and rigor, in order to show the public the real value of Angolan culture, through Carnival.

In Luanda, the 2018 edition will groups 45 carnival groups in the three categories (class A, class B and children).
