The direct contribution of travel and tourism to Ghana’s GDP is 2.3% and this accounts for more than 100,000 jobs, which is 1.8% of total employment (2011, WTTC estimate). The World Travel and Tourism Council ranks Ghana as 127th in the world for the relative contribution of travel and tourism to GDP, leaving room for potential expansion in this sector. In 2011 foreign visitor exports accounted for just over 5% of total exports, and in 2007 586,600 international tourists arrived in Ghana generating receipts of over US$1.1 billion. Despite this influx of foreign tourists, leisure travel spending is the dominante form of tourism generating 64.9% of the direct contribution to GDP, while domestic travel spending is higher than foreign receipts, accounting for 56.9% of travel and tourism’s contribution to GDP (2011, WTTC estimate). 

The Ghana Tourism Authority replaced the Ghana Tourist Board in 2011 as the organisation that promotes tourism, with a specific focus on sustainable tourism. Its aim is to see Ghana become the ‘tourism capital’ of West Africa and for tourism to become the leading sector of the economy. The Ministry of Tourism oversees the Ghana Tourism Authority and can develop, promote and co-ordinate all tourism activities in Ghana. It states that the tourism potentials of Ghana have remained latent and have not contributed significantly to the economy. Ghana’s tourism sector is expected to grow at an average rate of 4.1% per annum over the next two decades.
