“Through meticulous research, it aims to inspire new discussions, inform policy, and recognise the creativity and hard work propelling the industry forward.”


In his opening remarks, the National President of the Chartered Institute of Marketing, Ghana (CIMG), Dr Daniel Kasser Tee, said the coffee table publication encapsulates the rich diversity, vibrancy and potential of each of the 16 regional brands in Ghana.


A testament to our relentless pursuit of excellence


“This pioneering project is a testament to our relentless pursuit of excellence and the importance we attach to leveraging research to promote our regional brands as part of the larger agenda of marketing Ghana as a corporate brand,” he told the audience.


Looking ahead, Dr Kasser Tee said he believes that “it is imperative for each region to embark on a journey of strategic communications to champion and promote their virtues, balancing tradition with modernism and innovation to create excitement around their brands”.


Representing the Minister for Tourism, Arts & Culture at the event was the Director in Charge of Tourism, Mr Geoffery Tamakloe.


“The launch of the GH-RBI report is a strategic initiative that holds immense benefits for the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture,” he said.


“By providing detailed insights into each region’s strengths and areas for improvement, the report will enable policy makers to adopt a data-driven approach, formulating policies tailored to the specific needs and potentials of each region. This ensures our strategies are not only effective but also equitable and inclusive.”
