Ghana Broadcasting Corporation to install new shortwave transmitter

Ghana’s Minister for Finance and Economic Planning, Kwadwo Baah-Wiredu, presented the 2008 Budget to Parliament yesterday.

Mr Baah-Wiredu said three Foreign Information Desks would be opened in three strategic regions to promote Ghana and attract Foreign Investment into Ghana. He said the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) would install a 50 kW transmitter to improve upon its shortwave service and introduce a second channel to be situated in Kumasi for commercialisation and public education on government policies and programmes.

The Corporation will rehabilitate Radio and TV Studios in Accra and all the Regional stations as part of the retooling project.
