This year’s edition of Ghana Party in the Park UK promises to be bigger and more exciting as it brings on board more players in the creative industry.
During a press briefing on Friday, they announced their partnership with new institutions, including the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA).
Speaking at the programme, Benjamin Anane-Nsiah, the Director of Product Development and Investment at the GTA acknowledged the role the event plays in Ghana’s tourism and how ready the authority is to support the cause.
“For an event that has been sustained for 23 years, it’s a full adult now, so it’s time to broaden their scope to serve them and the broader interest of the country by making sure that we engage our people over there in a non-exploitative way,” he noted.
