Upon receiving the esteemed award, Mrs. Osei-Asamoah expressed her gratitude and reflected on the importance of recognising women’s contributions in various sectors. She stated, “I am truly honoured to receive this award and I believe it symbolises not just my efforts but the collective dedication of many women contributing to the growth of our nation. This recognition on International Women’s Day is a testament to the strides we’ve made and the limitless potential we hold as women.”

The TOUGHA President received in addition to the award a certificate and a citation which praised her efforts towards domestic tourism promotion.

“At the helm of TOUGHA, you have not only led but inspired your fellow members to uncover the hidden treasures within the nooks and crannies of our beloved country. This collaborative effort has not only shed light on the richness of Ghana’s tourism potential but has also significantly propelled the sector forward,” portions of the citation read.

In acknowledging the significance of the Tourism Promotion Category, she highlighted the critical role of tourism in Ghana’s development. “Tourism is a powerful catalyst for economic growth and cultural exchange. Through our collective efforts at the Tour Operators Union of Ghana, we’ve endeavoured to showcase the richness of our nation to the world, fostering positive change and development.”

Mrs. Alisa Osei-Asamoah’s latest accolade adds another gleaming chapter to her illustrious leadership journey. As the President of TOUGHA and CEO of Riali Consult, she has steered Ghana’s tourism sector to unprecedented success. Her unwavering commitment and visionary approach have garnered numerous plaudits over the past few years.

Reflecting on her dual roles, Mrs. Osei-Asamoah shared, “Balancing the responsibilities of leading TOUGHA and managing Riali Consult has been both challenging and rewarding. It’s a testament to the dedication of our team members and the support we receive from the broader community.
