August, 2009

The Honorable Peter Kent, Canadian Minister of State of Foreign Affairs (Americas), along with Member of Parliament (Brant), Mr. Phil McColeman, recently toured ACIC's North American headquarters in Brantford, Ontario with a positive message of economic growth.

Mr. Kent was proud to share in his admiration of the entrepreneurial efforts of Mr. Luciano Calenti, ACIC's President and founder. Mr. Kent iterated that global economic recovery begins with entrepreneurial mavericks like Mr. Calenti. He spoke of a neighborly responsibility as world citizens to provide opportunities for individuals and companies to grow and flourish – especially in a less than-favorable global economic climate.

With over 40 years of prior experience in broadcast journalism, Mr. Kent has first-hand field experience in seeing the real results of how determined businesses like ACIC can work to stimulate the worldwide economy.

Mr. Calenti spoke of his corporate five-year plan with its focus on growing the company's business worldwide. He later noted ACIC currently has dedicated resources that have netted the reported successes in Latin America. Further, Mr. Calenti assures that the United States is the leading market in North America and will continue to receive his corporation's attention as such.
