The New Patriotic Party (NPP) led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo has made it clear his plans for the creative arts sector when his party wins the upcoming general elections.
The plans include the building of theaters in every regional capital except Accra to address the crucial age-long challenge the lack of auditoriums and venues for entertainment events have created for the creative arts sector.
Also, the creating of a new division of the high court that will be well-equipped to focus on the creative arts and address all matters relating to intellectual property rights and legal challenges that often pop up within the creative arts sector.
The party further promised to aggressively promote domestic tourism with a sense of urgency and also establish a special fund for creative arts.
Sharing his thoughts on Ashh fm‘s National Agenda last Friday about the NPP manifesto, Socrates Sarfo revealed that the NPP consulted many renowned industry players before compiling their manifesto on the creative arts .
“The NPP has proven to care a lot about the creative arts industry and I believe that when they are given the nod the party will deliver.
He revealed that, some key players in the industry including those in the music scene, tourism practitioners and movie players were all consulted before the NPP came out with their manifesto, “I believe that this manifesto will help shape the industry’’ he added
Adding that, the NPP manifesto is solution oriented because will protect and create more jobs for practitioners especially the establishment of a divisional court that will handle piracy.
