The program will travel to DC, Atlanta, and LA to meet with experts in the creative industry, specifically film and music, and have a dedicated focus on copyright law and application.

The Department of State has outlined the following specific objectives for the project:

  • Exchange best practices with U.S. policymakers, at the state and local levels, to improve the operating environment, drive employment growth, and attract global investment into their local creative markets;
  • Examine the creative industries’ infrastructure and business ecosystem; with input from IP experts, film and recording studios, industry associations, and other thought leaders; and
  • Gain exposure to key business tools used by members of the creative economy to scale work globally.

Kofi Asamoah, also CEO of Kofas Media, describes the opportunity as ‘golden’.

In a Facebook post, he thanked The US Embassy in Accra and The US Department of State for recognizing the need to impact the local Creative ecosystem.
