The World Diplomatic Federation's global commissioner for economic partnerships and investments added "We have been underrepresented for far too long. The studio project will be the first in Africa. So we can compete at the world stage. it's a once in a lifetime opportunity."



The Minister told the delegation "You have come at the right time, Nana Addo believes in his talents, and Ghana has a lot of that. We are thirsty, you have come at a time that the market in Africa is ready.

"Thanks for choosing Ghana. Talents abound here. Everything that you need, l can assure that my Minister Awal Mohammed will ensure that you succeed to make a profit, pay taxes for Ghana to be the winner. In fact, Ghana is ready.

"My Minister has said he wants to make arts and culture the number one GDP contributor. As a capitalist government (NPP), we realized that the private sector has a major stake in nation-building. We need all to build this together. By the end of this year, you will see some mini theatres dotted across the country.
