The government of the Republic of Ghana is set to make a tremendous investment in the tourism sector of the economy. The government of Ghana plans to Invest $25M to Rehabilitate Tourists Site and the initiative dubbed “Destination Ghana” is set to improve the infrastructure of the major tourist attraction in Ghana which includes both Cape Coast and Elmina Castle, Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, W.E.B. Dubois Centre as well as other major tourists attractions in the Northern, Ashanti, Eastern and Volta Region of the country.
This news came from the president of Ghana, Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo in London which is set to increase the tourist arrivals of the country to over one million visitors from Europe every year by 2024.
The program is set to be built on the success of the “Year of Return” which was launched in 2019 to mark exactly 400 years since enslaved Africans left the shore of Gold Coast now Ghana to their various destination to work on the various plantation farms and mines as forced labor. This program will help not only the infrastructure development of the tourists’ site but is set to create both direct and indirect jobs as there will be new tourist attractions developed from scratch with large community involvement.
