The marine drive project will see government partner investors to develop an approximate 241 acres of land for purpose of tourism along the beach from James Town to Osu in Accra.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Tourism Authority(GTA), Akwasi Agyeman has stated that the Marine Drive Project will change the face of Ghana’s tourism industry while it creates thousands of jobs.
Akwasi Agyeman mentioned this during the Ghana Tourism Investment forum in Accra, that the project will rake in millions of dollars as revenue for government.
“The Marine Drive Tourism Investment Project seeks to develop the entire stretch of the land containing the Marine Drive into world-class, beachfront tourism enclave to meet the needs of business and leisure tourists, while making Ghana a preferred competitive and tourism destination in Africa,” he said.
Mr. Agyeman explained the core objective of the project is to decongest the city-center of non-conforming uses and reinstate a new land use structure benefiting the capital city.
Hopefully the beaches will look different and employ more people.
Touching on other projects, Mr. Agyeman observed that the Ghana Tourism Authority is also embarking different schemes such as Ghana Akwaaba Hotel, Ghana Center of the WorldMuni Lagoon Eco in Winneba and Highway Rest Stops among others.
This comes in after the launch of AGYA Koo TV by the ministry; hopefully all these projects will be completed on time.
