November 3, 2023

The staff of the Research, Statistics and Information Management Directorate and Data Managers of Agencies of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MoTAC) Ghana have undergone a five-day training in Statistical Analysis with Excel at the Gloriaka Hotel in Winneba from 30th October – 3rd November 2023.

The training was under the auspices of the Ghana Statistical Service under the Harmonising and Improving Statistics in West Africa Project (HISWAP). The HISWAP, which is a project, being supported by the World Bank, has a component for building the capacities of staff of the Research Directorates of thirteen beneficiary Ministries, Departments and Agencies of which MoTAC forms part.

The five-day training was therefore to empower staff of MoTAC by imparting knowledge and skills to participants to proficiently interpret and analyse data to enable them to make well-informed decisions. The Accra Technical University facilitated the training in collaboration with digiCAP.

Welcoming participants to the training on behalf of the Chief Director, Mr. John Yao Agbeko, the Director of Research, and the MDA Coordinator at the Ministry on HISWAP, Mrs Mabel Cudjoe said the opportunity being offered by HISWAP is a good one and timely as such. It would enable staff to acquire knowledge and skills which will enable them to interpret and analyse data on Tourism facilities very well. She urged all participants to take the training seriously to benefit the Ministry significantly.

Mr. Vittus Otto Langmagne, the Human Resource Director at the Ministry also added his voice and said, that in the era, where there is a revolution in technology, improvement in innovation, and emphasis on data and digitalisation, it is only proper that training is offered to staff of MoTAC to build their capacities. This would enable them to deliver on our mandate of supporting the tourism sector and make it competitive with other countries. He expressed his appreciation to the Ghana Statistical Service for its support.

The Monitoring and Evaluation Director of the HISWAP at the Ghana Statistical Service, Mr. Michael Beckoe expressed his pleasure that the training has been successfully organised and encouraged participants to make use of the training and even extend the knowledge gained to colleagues in their directorates and agencies.
