The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Landtours Ghana Limited, Mawuli Dzebu, has expressed optimism about the domestic tourism industry’s future, stating that the industry has a lot of opportunities to explore.
He said 30 years ago tourism was not widely understood by many, but the current situation reflects a significant growth of tourism in Ghana and across Africa.
Speaking at the inauguration ceremony of Landtours Ghana Limited’s 30th anniversary celebrations, which saw the unveilling of two state-of-the-art luxury coaches, Mr. Dzebu highlighted the company’s commitment to the industry, stating: “We are working together, as you can see; we believe in the industry and what is here and what we can do”.
The CEO emphasised the importance of investing back into the business to support growth and development within the tourism sector. He mentioned that Landtours is not only investing in new buses but also in human resources and other aspects of the business to ensure long-term success.
Unveilling the two new buses signifies Landtours’ dedication to providing quality services for tourists and contributing positively to the tourism industry.
“We are going to make sure that 10 years from now we can come back and celebrate our meaningful contribution to the industry. The investment that we have just put in is almost half a million dollars,” he said.
The CEO also disclosed that the investment is in line with the company’s expansion plans.
Deputy Chief Executive Officer-Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA), Ben Anane-Nsiah, commended Landtours for its contribution to the tourism sector over the past 30 years.
Mr. Anane-Nsia used the opportunity to call on stakeholders to prioritise and promote local tourism, emphasising its potential to significantly bolster the country’s economy.
He added that the industry stakeholders should capitalise on the projected influx of two million tourists by 2026 to enhance their offerings, generate income and bolster the domestic economy.
“A good resilient, vibrant economy must have a component of domestic tourism, which is something we have identified and are actively working on. Over the past few years, we have seen several companies investing in various initiatives to showcase the country’s rich culture and history. And that is a good thing, but let’s do more,” he said.
