Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa has disclosed that the Delta State Investment Development Agency would soon be established to harness investment potentials in the state.
The Governor stated this when he received on courtesy visit, the Swiss Consular General, Yves Nicolet, at the Government House, Asaba.
He said that the state’s Investment Development Agency amendment Bill which was before the House Of Assembly for approval would enable the agency to liaise with the organised private sector, embassies and investors to utilise the investment opportunities and grow the state economy.
Governor Okowa commended the Consular-General on the visit and assured him of the state’s readiness to partner with Swiss companies and investors to develop the state economy.
He described Delta State as the economic hub of the South- South region with the best enabling investment environment.
Earlier, Mr Yves Nicolet told Governor Okowa that he was in the state to explore its economic potentials, stressing that the Swiss government was interested in improving the bi-lateral trade relationship with Nigeria and diversifying its investments to other states apart from Lagos.
