The Minister of Aviation, Cecilia Abena Dapaah, has said the choice of Ghana as host of the 12th Routes Conference is very strategic.
According to her, the conference will showcase Ghana on the world map and that the forum, which will be an assembly of industry experts and leaders, will further boost the image of the country.
