Government To Establish A Council For The Creative Industry

Elizabeth Ofosu Adjare, Minister For Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts

The Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts has assured the players in the creative arts industry, that it will not renege on its pledge to establish a governing council for the creative industry in Ghana.

The Ministry in a statement issued in Accra assured the stakeholders in the creative industry that steps were being taken to establish the creative arts council, which, according to the Ministry, would not in any way undermine the existence of relevant, active, focused, results-driven and well-meaning associations or councils already around.

The Ministry said the coming into force of the crative council should not be a threat to any existing entity, as they can still continue with their advocacy and accountability and transparency campaign activities.

It said after all, the existence of the Medical and Dental Council, the Ghana Legal Council, the Ghana Tourism Authority, The Ghana Education Service, among others, have not led to the outlawing of the groups like the Ghana Medical Association, the Ghana Bar Association, and the Ghana Tourism Federation respectively.
