A tourism expert, Senyo Akorli has implored the government to partner with local tourism agencies in managing the tourist centres in Ghana for an improved tourism sector and generate more revenue for the country.
He made the call at the launch of a local tourism agency, SENBA Tours in Tema. Aside from the business aspect of the agency, SENBA Tours also aims at projecting tourist sites in Ghana as a booster to the Ghanaian tourism industry.
Mr. Akorli who is the Operations Manager for a tourism agency, SENBA Tours said, though managers of the various tourist sites in the country are not doing badly, these sites can be improved tremendously if the government through a PPP arrangement assign each tourist site to a particular tourism agency. This he noted will help in the efficient management of the sites and enhance revenue generation since these agencies woo in the tourists.
This according to Mr. Akorli is because tourists are sometimes not satisfied with some tourist places after selling the package to them. This he added does not paint a good image of Ghana and make for an improved tourism sector.
