Against the backdrop of the celebration of World Tourism Day, the Daily Graphic takes a look at global tourism figures and opines that Africa could generate more revenue from the sector. It notes that if indeed, tourism has the potential to reduce poverty in developing countries then more has to be done to catch up with the developed world. The paper says tourism does not happen in a vacuum, therefore all sectors need to come on board to make it functional. It decries situations where attractions have no tour guides instead these are people who beg for alms. The Graphic thinks a lot remains to be done to make the sector viable. This it says, includes more education, issuance of more visas on arrival and investment in the sector.
The distribution of expired goods by NADMO provides food for thought for the Ghanaian Times. It is alarmed and scandalised that the Organisation cannot track and isolate expired goods, but rather embarrasses the Vice President by handing such goods to him for distribution to disaster victims. The paper is however gratified that NADMO has taken full responsibility for the incident. It calls for the auditing of all NADMO’s stores to prevent a recurrence in future.
