The ladies were smartly dressed in Ghanaian Times and Spectator-branded T-shirts and jeans trousers.

The Ghanaian Times and its sister paper, The Spectator, are among the major Media Sponsors of the Miss Tourism Ghana event.

The ladies, referred to as Princesses were accompanied to the Times office by Ms Helena Nana Ansah, Miss Ghana Tourism UK 2014, Ms Jessica Jemila Kawra, the reigning  Miss Tourism Ghana 2013 and Mrs Delphine Brew-Hammond, the Event Director of Miss Tourism Ghana Organisation (MTGO).

Ms Ansah emphasized that tourism could also been promoted by how a person portrayed herself,  saying in the UK, when a person wears a unique and peculiar outfit, people inquire the origin of the item.

“Just by being yourself and how you carry yourself as a Ghanaian, even through the way you dress or speak, you sell Ghana as a tourism destination,” she said.

Mrs. Brew-Hammond expressed MTGO’s gratitude for the enormous support the Times and Spectator had given her organization over the years in promoting the pageant and tourism in Ghana.

Mr Jim MaCauley, Deputy Editor of the Ghanaian Times congratulated the Princesses and encouraged them to learn more about the tourism potentials of Ghana, in order to sell the country to the world.

He advised them to embark on a project to promote and unearth the hidden tourism sites in the country.

The Princesses are very optimistic that this year’s pageant will be the best.
