As part of efforts to boost tourism in the country, Government is undertaking a comprehensive renovation and modernization of tourist attractions across the country.

The Cape Coast and Elmina Castles as well as the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park are part of the selected sites under renovation.

Delivering the 2022 State of the Nations Address on the floor of Parliament on Wednesday 30th March 2022, Akufo Addo noted that the sites, when completed, will enable Ghana retain its position as the preferred tourism destination in West Africa.

He stated that government is determined to make Ghana the place where hard work pays good dividends.

Akufo-Addo called on the general public to recapture those glorious moments and build on them as we work hard to reclaim what we lost to the COVID years.

“Government is, therefore, undertaking a comprehensive renovation and modernization of tourist attractions across the country, such as the Cape Coast and Elmina Castles, Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, which will enable us position Ghana as the preferred tourism destination in West Africa.”

”Mr Speaker, Government is determined to make our country the place where hard work pays good dividends. We have made substantial investments in the agriculture sector, for example, because we recognise this is where a substantial number of our people make a living,” Akufo-Addo added.

Commenting on creative arts, fashion, and film industry, Akufo Addo stated government is set to unleash the creativity, enterprise and innovation of our youth, by giving them education and skills training in the Creative Arts.

“The Creative Arts Senior High School, in Kwadaso, whose construction is currently seventy percent (70%) complete, will serve as a beacon for many young and talented people, seeking a fulfilling career in this field,” he said.
