Eckankar Ghana’s president, Mr. Aspect Caiquo, stated that as a religious organization, it had its headquarters in America, where the current ECK Master lived with his staff in order to communicate with the various areas about Eckankar-related issues.

He claimed that in Africa, seminars are held that alternate between Benin, Nigeria, Togo, and Cote D’Ivoire. This year, Ghana will host the conference, which he claimed will also draw attendees from Europe and America.

Several of the guests we are anticipating have heard a lot about Ghana, he claimed. They are aware of our traditions, crafts, and knowledge that Ghana is the top tourist destination; therefore, it is appropriate to get in touch with professionals in the field to determine how to best utilize the influx of tourists to promote our nation. To take advantage of any chance that results from the seminar, we must remain vigilant.

Because we know that as the tourism minister, he will be interested in such a large gathering in the nation, we are here to brief the minister and to formally invite him to the launch as well as the key events in August.

Dr. Ibrahim Awal assured the group of the Ministry’s support “for people to see, feel, and have a nice stay in Ghana” and stated that the seminar was primarily about religious tourism and was on the agenda for Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions (MICE).

To ensure a successful seminar that would benefit the industry, the Minister added, “We are happy to engage with you and would contact representatives from industry even before the launch.”

The announcement of the seminar was welcomed, according to Mr. Akwesi Agyeman, CEO of the Ghana Tourism Authority, as the Ministry and its agencies had been working with different organizations over the past few years to promote MICE.

He stated that typically, these events receive logistical support, adding, “for hotels that are under our supervision, we can engage them so that they can give some very attractive pricing for you and people coming.”

So, we can engage with hotels and work with the business sector to plan some city excursions for visitors so they can also experience some of Ghana, Mr. Agyeman added.
