The Ghana Tourist Board (GTB) is to hold a National Flower Festival in the Eastern Region.

The two-day festival to be organized in Koforidua and some other venues yet to be named would encourage people to converge at the venues to exchange flowers with their loved ones with other people renewing their wedding vows and to spend quality time as lovers.

Mr Julius Debrah, the Executive Director of GTB, said this when he and some officials of the board interacted with players in the hospitality trade in Koforidua.

The officials include Mr Ben Ohene Ayeh, Public Relations Manager, GTB, Mr Edwin Owusu-Mensah, Executive Director in charge of operations, GTB and Nana Adjei Twinin, Board member, GTB.

They interacted with hoteliers, car rentals, drinking and chop bar operators among others to encourage them to strive for excellence to boost tourism in the area.

Mr Debrah expressed optimism that the programme would stimulate domestic tourism and that there would be several events at tourist sites in the region during the event.

He said the GTB was determined to take advantage of Koforidua nearness to Accra to promote tourism in the area
