‘’There is nothing like the experience of being with the wonderful, beautiful, warm, and hospitable people of Ghana. He noted. Dr Taleb Rifai was full of praise for Ghana’s Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts Mrs Elizabeth Ofosu-Adjare and Ghana’s Ambassador to Germany H.E Akua Sena Dansua. He said the two were the best examples of what Ghana can produce. “They are full of warmth, energy, love and dedication for their country”, he added.
He opined that it is a wonderful representation of what Ghana can give the world. He concluded his speech with the clarion call to the world that by far Ghana offers one of the most diverse tourist products, particularly its rich cultural traditions/customs and a very rich eco-systems for every tourist. He emphatically endorsed Ghana as one of the most preferred tourist destinations and said those who have not visited Ghana yet should do that, “for they don’t know what they are missing.”
Dr Taleb Rifai and his team from UNWTO had earlier visited Ghana’s stand at the just ended International Tourism Exhibition (ITB Berlin 2015) to hold discussions with Ghana’s Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Mrs. Elizabeth Ofosu-Adjare on UNWTO’s decision to choose Ghana to host the UNWTO’s conference on Re-branding the Image of Africa on the 17th-19th August, 2015.
