THREE decades since the debute of Enugu International Trade, its impact is best felt in quantum of trade it has witnessed.
Anambra is among the states of the country participating at the on-going 30th edition of the annual Enugu International Trade fair. Anambra’s participation at the Fair is expected considering her huge economic, social and political potentials which need to be showcased for the world to see.
The presence of the state at the fair is no doubt a quality addition to the annual trade and commerce ritual. It is an undebatable truism that Anambra is among the few states in the country endowed with rich human and material resources capable of changing the country’s economic landscape.
For a state with the largest market in the entire West African Sub-region at Onitsha and other world class markets and trade centres in Nnewi, Nkpor, Ogidi, etc, the state no doubt is among the fastest growing states in the country.
The present administration in the state, ably led by Governor Willie Obiano has not only made the state attractive to local and foreign investors but had also made security of lives and property a top priority which had yielded a lot of dividends to the state.
Those who knew Anambra state too well can without bias attest to the uncommon changes and monumental developments that had taken place within Governor Obiano’s five years in office. With the mouth watering incentives and packages put in place for both local and foreigners through the Anambra State Investment and Protection Agency (ANSIPPA), one could rightly say that Anambra is an investors’ paradise.
With good security in place, coupled with good network of roads and other numerous incentives, Anambra can boldly beckon to both the local and international community to come and do business with it.
This is exactly the message the state is carrying to the 30th Enugu International Trade Fair. A visit to the Anambra State Pavillion at the on-going fair will make a bold statement about the rich cultural and economic heritage of this state variously described as Japan of Africa.
As Anambra celebrates her Special day tomorrow, a clarion call has been made to ndi Anambra, friends, the business community both local and international to visit the Anambra Pavillion to see things for themselves and also avail themselves of the opportunity to do business in Anambra..
