After its maintenance, Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park now generates GH¢1.1 million per month.
Before the park was renovated, they earned an average of GH¢3,000 a month.
Since then, as sales have increased, the park’s staff has also grown by 50 people.
Minister of Tourism and Creative Skills Dr. Ibrahim Awal said this at the opening of the Ghana Mutual Prosperity Dialogues in Accra yesterday.
The minister said that in addition to these measures, the National Museum, which previously earned GH¢25,000 per month, now earns GH¢350,000 following renovation and the hiring of 15 new staff to work in the building.
He therefore called on the private sector to take advantage of the opportunities offered by tourism due to the great benefits it brings to the country.
