Ghana Becomes The Centre Of Attention in the Africa After Celebrating Year Of Return....Nana Addo
Ghana became the centre of attention in the African diaspora and, indeed much of the word as we led the way with events of remembrance to commemorate 400 years since the first captured Africans arrived in the Americans in what became the beginning of ignominious transatlantic slave trade.
It is a matter of great pride to me that all Ghanaians embraced the year of Return, and helped to project sure a positive endearing image of our country.
My heartfelt thanks to all Ghanaian and to members of the house, in particular, for the enthusiastic welcome that was extended to our visitors and making the year of return such a resounding success.
We are building on the foundation of the year of return to a new level the next stage of our re-engagement with the African diaspora, with the theme "Beyond the return" The government is seeking to build on the success, and we are putting measures in place to take us "Beyond the Return "
I should thank two people, in particular who have embraced their Ghanaian heritage and have played a key role in our to building lasting bridges between Ghana Africa-Anericans:
Hollywood star, Boris Kodjoe and international marketing icon, Bosoma saint John. We are grateful to both of them for leveraging their star-power to attract thousands to the land of their fathers and to drive a fresh narrative that says Ghana is a land of opportunity; visit invest, make it your home.
