The Ogun State government has sought economic cooperation with Japan for the establishment of an automobile assembly plant and industrial park in the state.

The state governor, Ibikunle Amosun, expressed this while receiving a delegation from Japan, led by the Japanese Ambassador to Nigeria, Rt. Hon. Rywichi Shoji, in his office in Abeokuta,

He said his administration was ready to collaborate with Japan on human capacity development, industrialization, energy and long-term financing.

While commending the administration for providing the much needed conducive atmosphere for business, Mr. Shoji, described the state as an emerging economy which paraded the best brains and geographically remained the center of industry, based on its rich land mass and closeness to Lagos and other West African countries.

He said the visit has afforded the team the opportunity to share first-hand information on areas of cooperation with the state.
