In a bid to promote tourism in the Volta region, the Regional Minister Dr Archibald Letsa with support from the Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) has initiated the ‘Volta Trade and Investment Fair’ slated for November this year.
The launch is scheduled to take place in August.
The initiative is also meant to attract tourists from around the globe to the Volta region and to also draw investments to that part of the oil-producing West African nation.
As part of activities marking the event, selected influential journalists who hail from the Volta region have toured tourists sites in the region to enable them throw more lights in these sites on their various media platforms.
The media personalities are Dzifa Bampoh, Emefa Appau, Bernard Avle, Kafui Dey and Max Fugar.
The team started the visit from Sogakofe, to Keta, to Dzodze, to Ho, Amedzorfe to Hohoe.
The aim is to draw attention and also leverage the influence of these media personalities from the region to highlight the opportunities therein.
The next tour is in September.
The media practitioners are seeking to push, tourism, agribusiness and ICT as potentials.
