The Vice President delineated a comprehensive strategy encompassing policy reforms, tax incentives, and the integration of digital platforms for artists. Paa Dogo emphasized the transformative potential of such initiatives in positioning tourism and the creative arts as crucial drivers of Ghana's economic growth.

Highlighting the successes of previous initiatives such as the "Year of Return" and "Beyond the Return," Dr. Bawumia reiterated his commitment to building upon these triumphs.
