Atiwa District is named after the Atiwa Mountain Range that has a beautiful evergreen forest cover. The mountain is again the source of rivers Birim and Densu and a number of streams. There are also attractions like waterfalls, butterfly sanctuary and the mausoleum for the burial of Akyem Abuakwa Kings in the forest. The name Atiwa therefore connotes wealth or richness.
Atiwa District is however poor in terms of infrastructural development and it is important to tap its resources to enrich its economy. It is in this spirit that the District was carved out of the East Akyem District to accelerate its development.
The District would want to economically develop through eco-tourism. AThere are historical attractions also in the District for tourists to see.
We therefore need the total support and collaboration of all stakeholders in the District including investors - to achieve this.
This website is to give you an insight to the district, showcase some of the projects and programmes the District and its development partners have embarked on since its creation.
The website is also to serve as a medium to make a passionate appeal to all citizens of Atiwa both at home and abroad, to come together to embark on a purposeful, aggressive and effective investment promotion agenda aimed at exposing the rich and viable opportunities of the District to both local and foreign investors.
