Mr. Joseph Amarh Amartey is a product of the University of Cape Coast and Graduate School of Mamsa. An elite in Tourism and Hospitality fields of study. He owns the passion of the desirable sustainable tourism development by means of domestic promotion. Consequently, he sprang from beneath to become the Visionary and Founder of the TOURISM SOCIETY OF GHANA. Subsequently, he emerged the award-winner for best promoter of domestic tourism awarded by the Ghana Tourism Authority for 2014 and 2016 business years. Again, he has sought to lift the flag of Ghana high to the international community and as such, becomes an International Tourism Consultant for the Republic of Ghana.
Mr. Amartey has served on a number of Management and National Planning Committees, under the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MOTAC). He has served on the National Planning Committees for PANAFEST, Emancipation Day, Ghana Carnival, HOMOFEST and World Tourism Day Celebration, among others.
Mr. Amartey drive for domestic and international tourism led him to travel to Zambia and Kenya to successfully meet partners and establish branches of the Tourism Society of Ghana (TOSOGHA) in those countries.
His dying crave to render Ghana a fifth-free tourism destination has also culminated into his telepathic partnership with the then Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mrs. Catherine Apeku Abelema, to initiate the “OPERATION KEEP GHANA CLEAN CAMPAIGN” primarily aimed at putting to a halt the anathema of open defecation, an avenue he saw could increase patronage of our tourism by both foreigners and indigenes.
By virtue of his resounding achievements, Mr. Amarh Amartey, under the promising stewardship of the Hon. Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, has been appointed as the first of its kind, the office of the YOUTH TOURISM AMBASSADOR for Ghana.
