This time the summit is being held in Ghana, and it is the first time any African country has been chosen to host the event.

Ghana was chosen ahead of South Africa, Kenya and Morocco due to the peaceful political atmosphere, hospitality and security of the country.

The Ghana Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mrs. Catherine Afeku announced this at a press briefing in Accra on Tuesday, and said that this event will provide Ghana with a great opportunity to showcase its rich culture to the world.

She said that the country’s Ministry has instituted measures to promote Ghana’s tourism sector, and said that the development of the tourism sector would lead to more jobs to reduce unemployment in the country.

Mrs. Afeku said that over the years, the tourism industry has been one of the key revenue generators of Ghana’s economy. She said that about 10 Tourism Ministers from sister African countries will be attending the event.

She called on the media to market the Ghana’s tourism industry for luring more tourists to help boost revenue generation.

Mrs. Afeku said that the occasion, which will have President Akufo-Addo as one of the speakers will attract over 40 distinguished speakers and patrons from across the globe.
