Ghana Tourism

Ghana’s new administration is looking to further capitalise on tourism as a source of foreign exchange. The 2017 budget set specific goals for the sector, including ensuring sustainable tourism development, increasing participation in international conferences and developing standards for new tourism enterprises. With a number of promotion initiatives under way, the sector is making a dedicated push to turn the country into a leisure tourism destination. At the same time, ongoing projects, including airports and road upgrades, are expected to generate a further boost.
