Bawumia’s Vision for Ghana’s Creative Industries: Tax Incentives, Digital Platforms, and Tourism Boost

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the NPP flagbearer, presented his vision for Ghana’s creative industries at a UPSA event in Accra.
He outlined plans to provide tax incentives for film producers and musicians, aiming to stimulate production and draw in investments.

Beyond taxation, Dr. Bawumia expressed intentions to establish digital platforms dedicated to Ghanaian artists. This move is geared towards expanding their reach and potential income sources in the evolving digital landscape.

Furthermore, Dr. Bawumia emphasized his commitment to boosting tourism. He highlighted plans to build upon existing initiatives like the Year of Return and Beyond the Return, foreseeing them as crucial contributors to the country’s economic growth.

Addressing practical challenges, he proposed the implementation of an e-visa policy to streamline visa processes. This, in turn, is expected to facilitate tourism and contribute to job creation. Altogether, these measures aim to foster growth and innovation within Ghana’s creative sectors while positioning the nation as a significant cultural player on the global stage.
