New site to enable Delta traders access markets

15 April 2014, 14:00

Delta - The Delta State Government has designed a website to enable local traders showcase and sell their goods through the internet within and outside the state.

The State Commission For Commerce, Kingsley Emu, disclosed this at an ICT workshop organized for  traders in the state capital, Asaba.

The commissioner said the market has gone beyond physical locations and local traders thus  needed to learn how to take their goods to the virtual market with supporting infrastructure.

According to him, the intention of the state is to encourage the traders to open virtual markets with internet services where they could operate from without necessarily going to a physical location or hire stalls.

"What we are trying to do now for the market women is very ingenious. The website will soon been out. We have created a platform through this workshop and we are creating the infrastructure which is the website that is the main frame where they will operate from," he said.

Also speaking on the project, Special Adviser to the Governor on Poverty Alleviation, Ann Chalokwu-Orumade said the workshop was geared towards creating awareness on easier methods of transaction business through the internet.

She said the workshop would among other things afford participants the opportunity to understand the meaning of a cashless society and how to make the best of it through ICT.
