The Director of Creative Arts, responsible for Programmes & Projects at the National Commission on Culture, Mr. Socrate Sarfo has stated that, the tourism ambassadors appointed by the government are really working for the progress of Tourism, Culture &Creative Arts. He is however challenging anyone at all to visit Ghana Tourism
Authority (GTA) for all the statistics that show, the ambassadors aren’t sleeping on their appointment.
Speaking to www.flexgh.com, Socrate Sarfo emphasized that, people who are not interested in their works wouldn’t see what the ambassadors are up to. Fuse ODG; one of the ambassadors, is currently in Europe and some American countries promoting Ghanaian cocoa to various hotels that are enjoyed by their clients.
He added that, there is another Ghanaian in Korea who is also promoting clothes that are made of Ghanaian print while Northern Region star boy Fancy Gadam is also working hard in the three Northern Regions of Ghana in his quest to promote tourism by driving most tourists to the various places in the North just to see the most beautiful things around there.
According to him, the National Commission on Culture is in partnership with Street Fashion Train and he is urging Ghanaians to use the month of March to wear made in Ghana clothes. He explained that the motive behind this initiative is to encourage every Ghanaian to be in an African print as they approach Independence Day in March.
He further stated that, he will be happy to see Ghanaians in their colourful local print in the whole month of March to showcase their beautiful Ghanaian culture to the foreigners who will be present at the occasion.
Moreover, Wear Ghana Month (March) is a month that will be observed by Ghanaians to boost the fashion industry in Ghana and award industry players.
Weeks ago, the president of the Republic of Ghana had an encounter with the press, which for the first time saw two known journalists from the Creative Arts sector. But unfortunately, the two journalists couldn’t get the opportunity to ask questions, which got many worried.
As many believe the government has no interest in the creative arts industry, Socrate Sarfo thinks otherwise by explaining that the NPP government thinks and believes in the creative arts industry and so there isn’t any cause for fear.
He believes the president and cabinet board are considering everything that went wrong during the encounter and has assured of an improvement at the next ‘meet the press.’
