Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) has taken the decision to suspend operations of some hotels, bars, and food joints in the Western North region.
The decision to suspend operations in the hospitality and food service sectors comes as a precautionary measure following recent developments in the global health landscape.
Collaborating with the Environmental Health Department in Sefwi Wiawso Municipality, the Ghana Tourism Authority conducted a comprehensive training programme emphasizing quality service delivery and maintaining high hygiene standards for all operators.
This training is an essential step in preventing unforeseen health issues and ensuring customer safety.
Michael Kpingbi, the Regional Manager for the Ghana Tourism Authority, highlighted the ongoing commitment to continuous training and stated that there will be further mandatory training sessions for operators.
According to him, failure to comply with these requirements and acquire the necessary licenses for operation will lead to the temporary shutdown of hotels, guesthouses, drinking bars, chop bars, pubs, and food joints.
Nana Kofi Asiedu, Mawerehene I of Sefwi Asawinso and a Board Member of the Sefwi Asawinso Hotels Association, expressed his satisfaction with the training.
He encouraged all operators to engage with the Ghana Tourism Authority for guidance to ensure a smooth and compliant operation that serves customers effectively.
