Ghanaian Football Journalist Angela Akua Asante and sibling Esther Ama Asante are currently in Spain to participate in the fifth edition of “The African Woman Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow”, the biggest annual business forum in Spain which brings together African entrepreneurs and European investors. 

The event is organised by the Centre Euro Africa, a Barcelona-based agency presided by Divaika Kiemba Dina, the facilitators of the delegates’ trip to Spain with support from Royal Air Maroc.

The three-day event will be hosted in multiple cities with the Asante sisters gracing the programme in Barcelona on September 30 and the final day in Madrid on October 2.

Angela, founder of media outlet TITA Productions, will open the programme in Catalonia’s cosmopolitan capital with a presentation showcasing how independent media producers in Ghana have been applying new technologies to promote the connection and interaction between African citizens and Europeans, while helping to create a more advanced society.

Angela, famously known as Triple A in the media circles, is expected to screen “We Are TITANS”, a TITA Productions short documentary throwing light on the lack of youth development fund for young Ghanaian Sports Journalists.

The multilingual reporter, who has been a member of the International Sports Press Association (AIPS) for the past seven years, advocated for equal opportunities in Ghana's media industry in the documentary.

Also, at a round table discussion, Angela will be offering solutions to support independent media producers and to create jobs for young journalists to be able to sustain themselves financially whilst changing Africa’s narrative globally.

On the other hand, Esther, founder of Organic Trade & Investments (OTI) and Virtual Linguistic Solutions (VLS), will do a presentation on how innovative education actions in Africa can achieve maximum effectiveness through the implementation of programs based on new technologies.

Spanish economist, Prof Iñaki Ortega and Ghana's Ambassador to Spain, Her Excellency Mrs Elizabeth Adjei are expected to attend the forum.
