The Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mohammed Awal, has announced that the government will be launching a project that will create an avenue for the youth to bring out innovative ideas on tourism.

The minister further explained that the inniative is aimed at instigating the interest of tourism in the youth.

Speaking at an editors’ forum held on Monday, August 14, 2023, at the Accra City Hotel, Mr Awal revealed that the new project will be launced in 2024.

“Next year we are going to launch a 100-million-cedi tourism enterprise project to encourage young people to give us projects on sustainable tourism,” he said.

The minister also announced that his ministry has targeted to train about 6,000 young people,  including cooks, security and other tour guides along the tourism value chain next year.

“One of our key problems in this country is customer care. I am sure when you go to the tourist sites even the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial park you don’t see people share a lot in terms of customers orientation,” he indicated.

According to the minister,”the most important thing in tourism is to get people to repeatedly visit places, a reason they are devising strategies to make tourist develop interest in frequently coming to Ghana”.

“At present, the average stay for visitors who come to Ghana is seven (7) days but the government intends to increase to at least ten (10) days”, he added.
