The Upper East Regional Director of the Ghana Tourism Authority, Wisdom Ahadzi, has called on the public, particularly the region’s residents, to actively support initiatives aimed at showcasing the area’s development on the global stage.

Such acts, the director said, will not only stimulate the local economy but also attract international attention to the diverse cultural and natural wonders the Upper East Region has to offer.

Speaking at the Regional Chocolate Day Celebration held at the Rock Gardens Eco-Resort, Mr. Ahadzi explained the importance of collective responsibility in unveiling the hidden gems of the region to the world.

He noted that such an approach goes beyond being a mere call to action. “It is a recognition of the shared duty to showcase the region’s rich cultural heritage, historical sites, and picturesque landscapes to a global audience,” he said.

He stressed that global exposure could have a transformative impact on the local economy as it will entice the international community to explore the unique attractions the region can boast of.

The Regional Chocolate Day Celebration served as a replica of the National Chocolate Day Celebration established in 2005 under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture.

Speaking on the theme, the director explained that the aim was to shift the attention of the youth from engaging in sexual immoralities towards showcasing love to their loved ones through a gift of chocolate at the Valentine’s Day celebration.

Students and teachers from Gowrie Senior High Technical School also took part in the celebration, along with representatives from the Center for National Culture.

This year’s theme was: Eat Chocolate, Stay Healthy, Grow Ghana, with the sub-theme: Explore Ghana, Eat Chocolate.
