Media General Announces Its Preparedness To Celebrate March As Ghana Month



March 2021 is just around the corner and leading Ghanaian Media Company, the Media General Group has this week announced its preparedness to execute this year’s edition of its annual Ghana Month campaign.

Ghana Month is a month-long campaign which takes place in the month of March to coincide with the country’s independence celebrations. The campaign is to primarily project the country’s indigenous products and services as well as celebrate its rich cultural heritage.

According to management of the media conglomerate, the focus of this year’s Ghana Month campaign is to promote the essence of patronizing locally made products and services as the world battles the shattering effect of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Group Chief Executive Officer of the Media General Group, Beatrice Agyemang highlighted the economic impact of the campaign and what the country stands to gain when Ghanaians patronize products and services by local firms.

In addition, it will create more jobs, improve physical infrastructure and enterprises in the country”, she added.

Ms. Beatrice Agyemang further stated that “the Media General Group is a wholly owned Ghanaian business which has been championing the promotion of local content over the years. It remains our commitment to promote the agenda of supporting Ghanaian businesses at all times as our contribution to national development”.
