Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Hon. Catherine Afeku has launched the maiden edition of the See Ghana Magazine.
The event which was held at Kempinski Hotel Gold Coast City Accra on October, 12, is intended to market the beautiful sceneries of the country to citizens and to the international community.
Speaking at the launch, Madam Afeku emphasized that as part of efforts to boost domestic tourism in an attempt to attract tourists across the globe, the See Ghana Magazine’s main objective is to take these attractions to potential travelers before they plan their trips to the country.
According to her, complimentary copies of the magazine would be given to embassies and high commissions as well as planes for free.
The printing of the magazine has been outsourced to CLITI Magazine and would be sold at the various newsstands for GHc10.00 per copy and would be published on monthly or quarterly basis.
The Minister added that Ghana would also host this year’s All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) from November 14-17, which is being organised by the Government of Ghana in collaboration with the African Union and AFRIMA Secretariat.
AFRIMA is designed to promote the distinct rich African music worldwide, engaging millions of fans by propelling African music to glorious pinnacles beyond the borders of Africa.
“We also took advantage of this rare opportunity to emphasize on the benefits prospective sponsors of the upcoming AFRIMA Awards, are going to derive from investing in this year’s awards ceremony, which Ghana is hosting.”
