Governor Ikpeazu is also expected to attend the Canton Fair office n China, which is globally the biggest machinery exhibition fair, holding in Guangzhou.

He will equally visit some leather and garment products manufacturing factories before returning to Abia State.

During the 2015 election campaigns, Ikpeazu had promised to promote Made-in-Aba products to the world.

He had said: “The axiom, ‘Get Aba right, and Abia is right’, shall continue to be the pivotal development philosophy and the nexus upon which to hinge development policy for Aba.

“We shall enhance international marketing opportunities for made in Aba goods and services by ensuring quality control and showcase the Made-in-Aba brand in the economic capitals of the world.”
