Ricerca E Cooperazione, an Italian International non-governmental organization, on Tuesday, presented office equipment, worth over €10,000 to the Ghana Tourist Board, to enhance its service delivery in the implementation of the West Coast Destination Management Development project.

The items comprises of computers, modem, projectors, mouse pad, pen drives, starker chairs, swivel chairs, PABX installation, colt browser, binding machines and printers.

Presenting the items, Mr Agbo Korshi Steven, a Senior Assistant Programme Officer of the NGO, charged the Board to put in place effective mechanisms for maintenance and effective management of the equipment.

He said the NGO would organize capacity building workshops and training in Information Technology, for the staff at the secretariat of the West Coast Destination Management Development, to enhance its services and activities.

Receiving the items on behalf of the Board, the Regional Chief Resource Officer, Mr Michael Kpingbi, thanked the NGO and pledged to ensure maximum use of the equipment.

Ricerca E Cooperazione is implementing the “Ghana West Coast Destination Management Area Development” project, in collaboration with the Ghana Tourist Board and the Netherlands Development Organization, Mr Kpingbi said.

“The project is a 15 months pro-poor and sustainable tourism intervention, taking place in the coastal areas in the Region, and its being funded by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the United Nations World Tourism Organization,” he noted.

Mr Kpingbi said the Region has a huge coastline as well as a lot of potential sites that can be explored to help eliminate poverty, adding that, “with the remarkable tourism attractions and potentials such as historical, archeological and ecological sites, beautiful beaches, unique biodiversity, sights and landscapes, it could be a source of revenue for the country to boost the economy”.
