Let’s shift focus to domestic tourism- Awal to Otumfuo

Minister for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Dr Mohammed Awal has called on the Asantehene His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to give his blessings to shiftinf focus to domestic tourism where Ghanaians will be encouraged to travel across the country.

Dr. Awal revealed domestic tourism has become necessary because the coronavirus pandemic has devastating impacts on many tourists travelling to Ghana.

He staged that the industry will invest over $20 million to improve tourism and arts attractions and, therefore, the Ejisu Museum, Yaa Asantewaa’s tomb, Lake Bosomtwe and some six handicraft centers in the Ashanti Region will be improved to create some 250,000 jobs and also contribute to the nations GDP.

Dr. Awal said this when he paid a courtesy call on Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi.

Meanwhile, the Asantehene noted that the tourism industry could generate income more than cocoa if managed well, therefore, the high cost of hotels should be resolved to attract visitors in the country.

Otumfuo also encouraged art and tourism lessons for commercial drivers who make first contact with visitors for further advancement in the sector.
