Ondo Embassy day to lure investors

20 June 2014, 20:01

Ondo - The Ondo State has introduced an “Embassy Day” to attract foreign investments into the region.

The government said the platform would enable the targeted investors and prospective venture partners interact and nurture viable partnerships.

Senior Special Assistant to the State Governor on International Relations and Diaspora Affairs, Remi Duyile, disclosed that the government intends to host the gathering of diplomats and the business community of the state on September 22.

“The Ondo State Embassy Day is a day being initiated for the nurturing of trade and investment in the state,” she said.

She explained that the Ondo State Embassy Day, which is said to be the first of its kind in the country, serves as a window of opportunity for embassies in the country to market the investment potentials of their countries to the business community of Ondo State.

“At the same time, the Ondo State Embassy Day will create the opportunity for local entrepreneurs to share knowledge on how to reach out to foreign markets, for trading opportunities and investment partnerships,” Duyile said.

Duyile pointed out that the commercial units of diplomatic missions resident in the country could exploit the opportunity of the Ondo State Embassy Day, to make presentations to the business class, on key sectors of their country’s economy that could be attractive to Nigerian partners.

She disclosed that Ondo State was blessed with an abundant reservoir of oil and gas, bitumen, cocoa, palm produce, granite, rubber, timber, limestone, clay, aquaculture, silica sand and African Shea Butter trees and was thus full of investment opportunities.
