Mr Moreaux was interacting with the press at the weekend as part of a build-up to the forthcoming awards ceremony to be organised by the Ghana Tourism Federation (GHATOF).
The federation is made up of 25 trade associations, including hoteliers, restauranteurs, tour guides, hospitality and car rental operators.
The ceremony will be held at the Banquet Hall of the State House on October 14, this year.
The awards have been created to recognise outstanding individuals who, through their leadership, dedication and professionalism, have made significant contributions to the Industry in Ghana.
Mr Moreaux said the ‘old guards’ had run a good race in a highly competitive relay, adding: “They have handed the baton to us and are now on the sidelines watching and encouraging us to excel. The least we can do today is call them into the bright lights of public recognition and pat them on the shoulder. This is the essence of the Tourism Hall of Fame.”
He paid glowing tribute to the foresight of GHATOF’s Mr David Nana Anim for instituting the award, saying: “The more we recognise the pioneering spirit of the old and excellence in the present generation, the higher we lift the industry.”
Ten awards are up for grabs. Three persons will be immortalised by their induction into the Hall of Fame, while the rest will be honoured with medallions and members.
