A group, Brenthurst Foundation, on Monday advised South East governments and leaders to project into the future to re-position the region for sustainable economic growth.

Dr Greg Mills, Team Leader of the group gave the advice while speaking on the topic: “South East Nigeria from Marginalisation to Maximisation’’ at the ongoing 2017 South-East Economic Summit (SEES) in Enugu.

The summit was organised by the South-East Governors’ Forum in conjunction with the Department for International Development (DFID), Nigeria.

Mills said that the region needed to act fast due to the dangers posed by population pressure and constant policy change among states.

He said that after some years of careful study of the region, the group found out that the region needed to take six steps to reposition itself for future prospective economic growth.

“The region must integrate public and private efforts across South East and promote itself as an investment destination.

I must also “package business and prospective investment opportunities and the need to meet and woo targeted individuals and institutional investors.

“The South East leaders and governments must co-ordinate and prioritise infrastructure investment with clear workable time-line for achieving these infrastructure targets,” he said.

The theme of the summit is: “Re-positioning South-East for Rapid Economic Development”. (NAN)
