Okama Ekpe Brook has been appointed as Head of the Economic Development and Trade for the 6th Region Global Chamber of Commerce and serves as a liaison in the country of Nigeria.
Brook is the visionary behind Africa Caribbean Heritage Alliance (ACHA), an international non-governmental organization with branches in Nigeria and Sint Maarten. She is a member of the Caribbean Studies Association, and a development expert, with many years of experience working with the United Nations’, international non-governmental organizations (NGO) and governments in Asia, North America and the Caribbean. She is an author, entrepreneur, creative artist, life coach and a sports enthusiast.
When asked about her appointment, Brook said, “I am excited to bridge the gap in production chains in Africa with direct markets in the Americas and the Caribbean. Africa has many natural resources, human capital, history and creativity. Yet, this remains hugely untapped for the full benefits of the continent.”
Strategic partnerships between the chamber and AIDO Network International, the African Continental Free Trade Agreement (AFCFTA) and the Ministry of Economic Development have been formed to support the chamber with its goal to transform Africa into a world-class economy.
Brook will support and participate in trade missions such as the Panama Expocomer in September 2021; identify and negotiate favorable terms of trade and facilitate better transport logistics for export from the continent. She will actively work to strengthen unification, peace and reconciliation between Africa and the diaspora through the 6RGCC.
