Minister of Tourism and Entertainment Wykeham McNeil earlier this month appointed Cooper as chairman of Jamaica's Entertainment Board.
Cooper refused to state the immediate priorities of the new Board, saying that he would reserve comment until after the Board's first meeting later this month. But he noted that a strong entertainment industry could be the catalyst for economic growth.
"The talent and creativity of our people are Jamaica's greatest assets. Entertainment and sports are already two of the fastest growing, if not the fastest growing industries in Jamaica," Cooper told the Jamaica Observer. "Our challenge, in this time of economic uncertainty, is to create an enhanced environment in which these assets can flourish, so as to enable even more rapid growth and profit for talent based business."
Cooper, a long time advocate for the development of Jamaica's creative industries, said that he was honoured to accept this appointment as board chairman.

Kingsley Cooper, executive chairperson of Caribbean Fashion Week (CFW), yesterday urged regional government's to pump more money into the creative industries, arguing that this was one sure way of meeting the challenges of the global marketplace head-on."It's time for governments (of the region) to restructure, re-prioritise, and re-position resources, away from the things which are dead and dying, and focus on those things with high growth potential and which will allow us to succeed on the international market," Cooper argued.
He singled out the fashion industry, noting that in the case of Jamaica, it holds the key "to economic competitiveness" and offers "the best opportunities" for wealth creation.
"The creative industries are the one platform which the Caribbean can justly claim as its own.What we have is unique, special, and exciting, and it is the one thing which the markets in the developed world will pay almost any cost for," he added.
Cooper was speaking at the launch of the third annual Caribbean Fashion Week at the Hilton Kingston Hotel.
He thanked the many sponsors and appealed to the region to continue in its support of the event.
Margaret Bernard, who spoke on behalf of the government of Trinidad and Tobago, praised the pioneering effort of Kingsley Cooper and his team.

Kingsley Cooper, chairman of Pulse Investments and The Entertainment Advisory Board, told The Sunday Gleaner that while live shows may be preferred by all, it is not always financially viable for promoters.
"Everybody prefers live bands, but it is much more expensive and not always viable for events. There are three additional expenses you have to consider when using a band. Firstly, you have to pay the artiste more because they have to pay the band. Secondly, you have to consider sound reinforcement for a band show vs a track show, and thirdly, you may also have to consider additional lighting," Cooper explained.
