Goge Africa and its project partners are set to launch the Destination West Africa Project (DWAP) in Lagos. Initiated by Goge Africa, the event is scheduled for the Lekki Conservation Centre in Lagos, on 24 September 2022.
The theme is ECOWAS of the people: Tourism within the sub-region; Prospects and Challenges.
The day’s programme will include activities marking this year’s World Tourism Day, which theme is: “Rethinking Tourism”.
DWAP seeks to, among other objectives, promote tourism, trade and Investment opportunities in West Africa; advocate for inter-connectivity and economic linkages within the region; and encourage West Africans to travel within ECOWAS sub-region.
After the launch, the DWAP team will set out on a tour-cum-roadshow around ECOWAS countries, starting with one week in Ghana. Other countries to be visited include: Senegal, Liberia, Guinea Conakry, Sierra Leone, Ivory Coast, Republic of Benin, Togo, and The Gambia.
Among other things, the DWAP Team will engage relevant institutions, public and private, to identify and explore strategic ways to lower the barriers that impede travels within West Africa.
They will also participate in conferences, summits and similar gatherings to encourage travel professionals in West Africa to support Regional Domestic Tourism and intra-Africa travels.
The team’s experiences in each country will be reported on social media, multiple media platforms, including on Goge Africa’s long-running culture and Tourism TV series, broadcast on 15 Channels with over 40miilion viewers.
