Turkish Ambassador to Ghana, Madam Ozlem Ergun Uluesen, says her government will collaborate with Ghana, to explore tourism-related opportunities for the socio-cultural and economic benefits of both countries.
She said Ghana has immense opportunities in the area of tourism, arts, and culture, and there is, therefore, the need to explore these potentials to grow the sector. Madam Uluesen said this when she paid a working visit to the Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Dr Ibrahim Mohammed Awal, in Accra.
The visit forms part of already existing bilateral relations between the Turkish Government and Ghana to explore opportunities of mutual benefit in the tourism sphere. She said globally countries are diversifying their economies and the tourism sector had been widely viewed as an alternative game changer.
For his part, Dr. Awal expressed commitment of the Akufo-Addo led administration to collaborate with the Turkish government to explore areas of mutual benefit in the tourism and culture landscape of Ghana for the benefit of all.
He said the initiative has the tendency to turn the economic fortunes of Ghana and Turkey around and create employment opportunities for the youth.
