Sand winning at beaches in the Central Region is not only destroying the beaches but also hotels, restaurants and other properties along the coast, the Chairman of the Central Region Branch of the Ghana Hoteliers’ Association, Mr. Ben Aidoo, has said.
He said this had become a matter of great concern to the Association and appealed to the Regional Police Command and the Environmental Protection Authority to assist in curbing the practice to save the Region from possible loss of beach front property.
Mr. Aidoo expressed the concern at the Second National Executive Council Meeting of the Ghana Hoteliers’ Association on the theme “Improving the retiring benefits of the Ghanaian hotel employee” at Elmina.
The Ghana Hoteliers’ Pension Fund to secure a better future for hotel employees after retiring was also launched at the meeting.
The Fund will be managed by Databank Asset and Management Services with Stanbic Investment Management Services as Custodians and Axis Pension Trust Limited as Trustees.
