Excited about the win, Axel Hauser, General Manager of the Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel Accra said: “We are truly humbled by the recognition accorded to us at this inaugural Ghana Expatriate Business Awards.

The hotel industry in Ghana employs about 500,000 people, consisting mainly of the youth, and promotes the modernization of the country by giving a platform to foreign visitors to form their first impressions about the country. A recent report by PWC’s Hospitality Outlook 2017-2021, suggests that the Ghanaian hotel industry is expected to grow 1.1% in 2017, 2.1% in 2018 and 2.3% in 2019. As a major emerging market in Africa, the study highlights that investors are increasingly eyeing opportunities in Ghana. The country continues to attract local and international brands to the country, including within the hospitality sector.
