One to be build in the Western Region and another one in the Northern region. Thank you Raphael U.K. Reply Akan Ewe · July 28, 2019 at 7:34 am Finally languages of Ghana can be taught at Tuskegee University which will make a more smoother transition of indigenous people into Ghana just as the United States with legal immigrants. Get the president of Tuskegee University and the president of a college in Accra and connect to create an exchange program to initiate a better migration for indigenous people of the eastern hemisphere and indigenous people of the western hemisphere of those two cities where the colleges are resided at. This is another way to introduce and increase tourism. Who (what groups of people globally) spends the most on vacations, migration and foreign college admissions. Think outside the box. Reply Akan Ewe · July 28, 2019 at 7:34 am Also a representative of the Department of Education or esteem professor should be visiting Tuskegee University cause that's where you are going to get your future pilots from after they join the military or before. Their should be a "Ghanian Program(me)" established their to link indigenous communities from east to west–west to east and even in the liberal arts section of tourism or hospitality. An overseas or foreign curriculum should be added to both colleges (one Tuskegee and other in Accra or Kumsai etc) one on the east and one the west as an exchange program. Nursing (General Doctor/ Naturopathic and Dentistry) programs and initiatives should be added on both ends to stimulate a "fertilization" to each economy and create ties and grow ties to be stronger. Reply Akan Ewe · July 28, 2019 at 7:34 am Also festivals and sporting events need to be created in most or all of Ghana cities. Golf courses and an Association guarantees increase in revenue from tourists. Tennis is another one. Museums are another and needs to at least one in each small town or city which ties monies back into the public transportation and cab markets for tourism. There should be a festival from the cultures of different tribee and clans each month from one city or town each which supports a major city they surround. Their should be meetings of city managers or mayors (equivalents) to ensure this planning be critical but not interfere with natural disasters or storms. Reply Akan Ewe · July 28, 2019 at 7:34 am Now this is for global satellite communities as the other was pure customer service…there should be targeted development of municipal airports into areas which "potential" tourists would like to come and go to Ghana. The southern part of the United States for instance is an "untapped market" of indigenous people along with Gullah Geechee Island or people who Chieftess Quet is power over and for. Why not help construct an airport there just like Armenians and Omans etc do in Detroit and Romulus, Michigan to their Countries? Have to think outside the box as some tourists maybe scoping to become "permanent residents" rather than a fly by night fantasy. International business is no joke. Take a look at Georgia which is the 2nd most populous counties to Texas. Maybe employing Islanders can improve the issues which surround Ghana. Hotel and motel is okay but bed and breakfasts are a little bit more intimate and getaway-ish. Those should be situated in the outskirts of major cities to increase tourism which helps also the transportation industry like cabs and public transportation.
