According to him, many people in the tourism world in Ghana enjoy tourism by default.
“We don’t have visitors profile to know how Americans, Europeans, Asians, etc. are and also the fact that we dealing with different countries diferent cultures” he said.
Giving an example, the Tourism Ambassador said that when a tourist comes to your country, transportation is key – if not, they will not be moving from one place to the other – which is actually the essence of tourism.
“When the tourist comes to the country they sometimes don’t know how to get the cars – transportation, and some of them end up struggling with us (Ghanaians) in getting the ‘trotro’ and taxi. We should be more proactive and learn more about it” he urged.
