Since 2005 the Kente town administration has taken a new twist for the better. Through community-based tourism, the ATMT has been formed, which is a town tourism committee working with interested NGOs and the Ghana Tourist Board to bring the beautiful art of hand woven Kente to the outside world.
The Kwabre East District puts a lot of priority on tourism development. The touristic/cultural activities constitute the second major economic activity in the District behind agriculture. The District therefore aspires to be the most popular tourists’ destination in the Ashanti region. The district is located almost at the central portion of the Ashanti region. The District shares boundaries with Sekyere South District to the North; Kumasi Metropolitan Area to the South; Ejisu Juaben District to the East; Afigya Kwabre to the West (Kwabre East District, 2010).
