Ghana has invited 25 countries, including the US and the UK, to participate in its 2015 carnival to be staged in Accra, in a yet-to-be-announced date.
Among the countries on Ghana’s invitation list are Brazil, Australia, South Africa, Mauritius, CÃ´te d’Ivoire, China, India, Zambia, among others.
Ghana’s Minister for Tourism and Creative Arts, Elizabeth Ofosu-Adjare, issued the invitation during the launching of Carnival International de Victoria in Seychelles Island, Friday.
She disclosed that this year’s carnival would be Ghana’s third edition and it would be properly organised to meet international standards, hinting that this year’s carnival would be the best so far in Ghana’s history.
Mrs Ofosu-Adjare was part of the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II’s delegation to Seychelles Island for 2015 Carnival International de Victoria.
The ministry sent a powerful delegation from the creative arts industry to represent Ghana at the carnival where they showcased Ghana’s culture to the world.
Later in an interview with BEATWAVES, MrsOfosu-Adjare said her ministry would learn from Seychelles Island to help make Ghana’s 2015 carnival grand.
According to the minister, the 2015 carnival would attract different cultures from across the globe that would assemble in Ghana and display their customs.
Mrs Ofosu-Adjare stated that the hospitality industry, notably the hoteliers, would make brisk businesses during the carnival.
The minister stated that areas such as transportation and all other sectors would receive a massive boost if the rest of the world storm Ghana for the carnival.
She stated that her mandate as a minister is to work assiduously to attract foreigners to Ghana to help boost the tourism industry and create wealth.
Mrs Ofosu-Adjare described tourism as a powerful tool to expand Ghana’s economy, noting that her ministry is giving tourism the needed attention.
