The Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Dr. Okechukwu Enelama says industrialisation and diversification of the economy remain the focus of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
The Minister stated this when he visited Aba, Abia State, as part of his industry tour to check the measures put in place by the state government for industrialisation.
He affirmed that the effort has reinforced the Federal Government’s commitment to working with Abia State and promised that the Chinese-owned steel company, Inner Galaxy Company, which he inspected, would get the needed support of the government.
“I want to appreciate the Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu and his team for supporting the industrialisation policy of the Federal Government. I want you to know that the Federal Government is committed to providing investors with the right business environment and making life easier for investors doing business in the country,” he assured.
Enelama also inspected some projects, including the Aba Mega Mall, the site of the Enyimba Industrial City and a public private partnership project among others.
On his part, the Group Managing Director of Inner Galaxy Steel Company, Mr Andi Lu described the Minister’s visit as an encouragement to investors.
He, however, appealed for more support from the Federal Government in the areas of tax holidays and financial assistance from the Bank of Industry. (Channels TV)
