“Yesterday, Bill Asamoah was at my office to pick up his appointment letter as a Tourism Ambassador for Ghana.

This appointment was made after KUMAWOOD unanimously nominated him to be

appointed as an ambassador after many months of deliberation.

Speaking with Bill, he revealed he was going to ensure the promotion of Ghana to

the world through quality movies, and enhance the business aspect of film making

to attract investors. He also intend to promote Government policies and agenda through Ghanaian films.

I also used the opportunity to inform him that, the Nana Addo led government has

not neglected the people of Kumasi in terms of Tourism, Arts and Culture development as some media reports suggest, but instead we are trying our very best to make the industry attractive for both local and foreign investors to want to invest.

Thank you.”
