Creative Arts Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CACCI) would soon be launched in Accra to promote and advance the interest of persons in the creative industry in the country.
Mr Philip Amanor, the President of the CACCI, in a statement copied to the Ghana News Agency, said the advent of the Chamber would also be a massive boost to the growth of the industry, which had been bedeviled by a number of challenges.
He said some of the challenges included lack of clear-cut vision, lack of welfare and investment plans and unhealthy interferences and assured that with the coming to being of the CACCI the problems would be a thing of the past.
Mr Amanor said the Chamber would be bent on addressing the issues with well-thought out ideas that would radically change the status quo of the creative industry.
He said: “The industry is pregnant with opportunities for investment, employment and international recognition, however, in Ghana the industry seems to be lagging behind in many respects coupled with unhealthy interferences.”
The President said the CACCI would be a one-stop shop for industry players that would mould them in line with similar businesses in Ghana and elsewhere and that the Chamber is currently working on a series of local and international projects and programmes.
Mr Amanor urged industry experts or players to come on board to vie for vacant positions in the CACCI to contribute their quota for the expansion of the industry.
