Alain St. Ange Visits Ashanti King at Kumasi Palace

Last Thursday the 19th May 2023 His Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the King of the Ashanti of Ghana received Alain St. Ange, the known former Minister of Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine of Seychelles who currently heads his very own ‘Saint Ange Tourism Consultancy’ at his private Kumasi Residence for discussions on tourism and on other potential economic areas. 

Mr. St. Ange is currently in Ghana as part of his six odd months tourism contract awarded after a public bidding exercise that sees him spending extended stays in the West African Nation of Ghana.

At His Majesty’s Kumasi Residence, discussions centered on tourism as a vital industry especially now that the Kumasi International Airport was nearing completion, as well as looking at opportunities for ‘value added’ openings for raw products of Ghana and also the historical museum where Seychelles is featured as the home of the Ghana’s Exile King and his entourage for a point in time.
