GHANA IS likely to become the centre of Africa’s film ground as a result of a planned construction of a 400-acre film industry in the country.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) Yoofi Grant made the disclosure on Monday, February 11, 2019, at the launch of the 4th Ghana CEO Summit.
According to him, the investors on the project whose identities he refused to disclose based on confidentiality reasons are currently holding talks in London about the construction of the film industry in Ghana.
He stated that the investors were serious about the project.
Mr. Grant also intimated that he has had discussions with Disney Land in the US and that the US film giant is also looking at making Ghana the centre of the movie industry in Africa.
Again, he said a significant number of international film stars are expressing interest in Ghana. He noted that renowned model – Naomi Campbell – has signalled her intention to bring investors into Ghana to invest in the country’s film sector.
His comments have come at a time Ghana has been declared the next biggest tourism destination in Africa.
