Why The Ghanaian Hospitality Industry Prices In Dollars
For a long time now, the hospitality industry in Ghana has been widely considered as pricy as hotels tend to charge in dollars. Some factors influence the pricing, and speaking to YEN.com.gh, Haruna Alhassan, a renowned economist, highlighted what impacts this phenomenon. The learned man with the Finance and Economics Pillar of think tank said:
Hotels qoute in dollars largely as a customer service gesture to their foreign clients. Especially those with little idea about dollar to cedi exchange rate in the country. Patrons of such hotels have no difficulty if they choose to settle their bills in local currency. The hotel exchange rate is usually lower than the market rate and will not result in customers paying more in cedi terms.
The Effects Of Pricing In Dollars
Haruna Alhassan pointed out the positive and negative sides of the phenomenon. He stated:
On the positive side, if clients decide to pay with dollars, then the dollar supply increase thus assisting with cedi stability. On the other hand, it makes Ghanaian hotels and restaurants that quote in dollars expensive to the foreigners
