Miss Tourism 2010, Charlotte Sika Quaguring has disclosed that she has been able to strike a deal that will see ten students in the Junior and Senior High School levels in Ghana and Zimbabwe enjoying a tourism exchange program.

Speaking in an interview with Hitz Entertainment News, Charlotte said this was the result of the special invitation granted her by the Zimbabwean Tourism Ministry to be part of the crowning of their Miss Tourism pageant.

The deal was struck in Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe during a meeting between her and the Deputy Prime Minister of Zimbabwe, Thokozani Khupe, Ghana’s High Commissioner to Zimbabwe, the Zimbabwean High Commissioner to Ghana, Mrs. Pavelyn Tenclai Musaka and the Chief Executive of the Zimbabwean Tourism Authority, Givemore Chidzidzi.

“As part of my project, I have inaugurated tourist clubs in some selected schools in Ghana, so as time goes on we will be transferring students from Zimbabwe to Ghana and Zimbabwe to Ghana…We are looking a number of ten students…we are now writing letters to the schools for the school authorities to approve. They will have to choose the students they will want to go for the exchange program,” Charlotte explained.

Meanwhile, the Zimbabwean Tourism Ministry is yet to finalise the exchange programme to give date for its takeoff. The Zimbabwean students will get the benefit of exploring the country’s tourism potentials.

Charlotte promised that the programme will not be a nine-day wonder. “After every year, a new queen is crowned so it is not going to be like I am going to do this and the next Miss Tourism Ghana leaves it. It is going to be continuous; any queen that comes will work on the project,” she said.

Charlotte is expected to represent Ghana at the Miss Tourism Queen International scheduled to take place in July in China.

The beauty queen was a special representative of Ghana at this year’s ITB-Berlin tourism fair held in March 2011 where she marketed Ghana's tourism potentials to visitors and investors.

Charlotte is scheduled to hold an intensive campaign at the Nungua Senior High School on Wednesday March 23 to promote tourism, it would be followed by a massive clean up exercise on Saturday March 26 also at Nungua.
