Abuja - The United Kingdom Britain has indicated its intention to invest in the Cross River State.

British Deputy High Commissioner to Nigeria, Peter Carter, disclosed this following a visit to the region where he paid a courtesy visit to Governor, Liyel Imoke, in Calabar.

“My visit to the state was to acquaint with the opportunities for development as well as understand the state politically and economically,” he said.

The UK entourage consisted of representatives from Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt offices of the Commission.

Carter expressed his intention to visit Calabar Free Trade Zone and Tinapa Business and Leisure Resort and see available opportunities and encourage British companies.

Imoke noted that the visit was apt as the state was  diversifying as a way of shifting its dependence in petroleum.

Imoke disclosed that the state was positioning itself as a destination of choice for business and  invested in key areas like information communication technology (ICT), hospitality and agriculture.

He maintained that a partnership between Britain and Cross River would not only expand its economy but ensure value chain and create opportunities for the local economy.
