In recent news flash, a beautiful dawn rose over the media executive’s career. The first was his appointment on the board of the African Continent Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). The second as staggering, was his partnership with Dr. Thomas Mensah (the fibre optic technology pioneer).
Keith Clinton is a St. Louis resident in the United States, and the executive of KC Productions. He has been nominated to the International Advisory Board of the African Continent Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), effective immediately.
The AfCFTA agreement promotes inclusive and sustainable development as well as international investment among 54 of the 55 African Union member states, making it the world’s largest free trade area by number of countries.
On October 28, 2021, Clinton delivered a keynote talk at the Africa Globalized Investment Summit in Accra, Ghana, paving the way for his appointment.
Clinton also stated at the Summit his ambitions to collaborate with Dr. Thomas Mensah to establish a state-of-the-art film, television, and entertainment studio complex in Ghana.
The Ghanaian-American chemical engineer and member of the US National Academy of Inventors Dr. Mensah played a role in the innovation of fiber optics and nanotechnology, which are now used to power the Internet.
Keitg’s goal is to turn Ghana into a major entertainment production hub and tourist destination, and he’s looking for more investors and strategic partners to help with the project’s overall growth and management.
The CEO of KC Productions and significant equity investor in various entertainment initiatives expressed his excitement meeting Dr. Mensah.
“Meeting the legendary Dr. Mensah after my speech and receiving his support was a major boost for this project and a life-changing moment for me personally.”
Adding that he would be returning to Ghana shortly to scout potential places and solicit additional funding “from the other international investors he met at this conference.”
He has high hopes with making Ghana a bright, shining beacon for the world to behold if there’s collective effort to achieve it.
