The British Council says it will promote the culture and creative art industry, acquisition of skills, education and English Language in Ghana.
Ms Liliana Biglou, British Council Director, said this was to empower the youth to fully develop their potentials.
Ms Biglou was speaking on Wednesday in an exclusive interview with the Ghana News Agency on the sidelines of a courtesy call she paid on the Deputy Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Ms Dzifa Abla Gomashie in Accra.
The Director said the Council’s new financial year would begin in April and she would continue to interact with the various Ministries, Agencies and Department to find out the areas in which the Council could be of assistance them.
Ms Biglou said the Tullow Group Scholarship Scheme, being managed by Council, aimed to build capacity in areas where Tullow’s host countries like Ghana experienced significant skills gaps.
She said British Council’s tremendous experience in running similar programmes complemented Tullow’s aim of supporting long-term socio-economic development in countries where it operated.
