Ac­cra as a city that has a rep­u­ta­tion of be­ing one of the safest and friendli­est in West Africa, mak­ing it ideal for first time vis­i­tors to Africa. The Gov­ern­ment, de­vel­op­ers and In­vestors are notic­ing the grow­ing de­mand in the new ho­tel in­vest­ment, and Carl­son Rezi­dor is due to open its Radis­son Blu Ac­cra Air­port Ho­tel this year 2017.

The num­ber of In­ter­na­tional tourist in 2016 in­creased to 1,322,500 from 1,202,200 in 2015. Ac­cra city Kokota In­ter­na­tional Air­port has pro­ceeded with the con­struc­tion of ter­mi­nal 3 ex­pand­ing its ca­pac­ity to ac­com­mo­date the in­creas­ing num­ber of pas­sen­gers as well as the num­ber of air­lines ser­vices. Ghana has re­duced the tax on re­fu­elling air­craft at the Kokota In­ter­na­tional Air­port Ac­cra, at­tract­ing more flights en-route across the At­lantic.

The coun­try is sta­ble and it is grow­ing at an im­pres­sive rate. Tourism in Ghana has long-term po­ten­tial. The gov­ern­ment is in­vest­ing time, money and en­ergy in the tourism in­dus­try, pro­mot­ing it to in­ter­na­tional in­vestors who are see­ing the po­ten­tial that Ghana has and are look­ing at in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Although many ex­pected vi­o­lence and fear af­ter the pres­i­den­tial elec­tions, Ghana had a peace­ful pres­i­den­tial elec­tion and tran­si­tion of power in 2016, show­ing hope for the fu­ture. The gov­ern­ment is un­der­tak­ing var­i­ous fis­cal pol­icy con­sol­i­da­tions that will aim to sus­tain eco­nomic growth.
