According to Ibrahim Awal Mohammed, the Minister-designate of Tourism, Arts and Culture, the Akufo-Addo led government is willing to inject money into making Ghana a film hub in West Africa.

This was revealed at the Appointments Committee of Parliament on Thursday, February 25, 2021.

He said the government also plans to establish state-of-the-art studios for both music and film in the country.

“We want to build a film and music studio. It’s one element that can increase the tourism potential of this country. We don’t have any serious studio in this country, so, this is one of the first things that we will do,” Mr Mohammed said as quoted by Classfmonline.

“The film studio will help in music and film production and make Ghana the hub of film production in West Africa,” he said, adding, “we intend to put $20 million into making Ghana a film hub in West Africa.”

Ibrahim Awal Mohammed also said that when given the nod, local television content will be promoted to project the Ghanaian culture through the tourism and creative arts industry.
