Ghana will hold this year’s edition of Kusi Ideas Festival at the Accra International Festival from December 10 – 11.
The event is being organized by Ghana Tourism Authority, through its MICE Ghana office, under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, in partnership with the Nations Media Group.
This year’s Kusi Ideas Festival will be opened by the President of the Republic of Ghana, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. President Paul Kagame of Rwanda and President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda are also scheduled to attend the event.
This year’s conference, which will be a hybrid and-in-person event is under the theme; ‘HOW AFRICA TRANSFORMS AFTER THE VIRUS’, and sub themed; ‘BEYOND THE RETURN: AFRICAN DIASPORA AND NEW POSSIBILITIES.’
The Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Tourism Authority, Mr. Akwasi Agyeman, says the Kusi Ideas Festival has come at the right time to cement Ghana’s reputation as a leading business tourism destination. “We have embarked on a journey to attract meetings, conferences and events into Ghana and this partnership with NMG is in the right direction.”
Several business and political leaders across Africa are billed to attend.
The event will explore themes such as: Taking forward the lessons learnt from leading during the pandemic, Technology, innovation and creating the most African wins and Opening borders and building back tourism among others.
Kusi Ideas Festival was started three years ago by the Nation Media Group as a Pan-African platform to examine the African continents place in the world. It was started in 2019 to be an “ideas transaction market” for the challenges facing Africa, and the various solutions and innovations the continent is undertaking to secure its future in the 21st century.
