SOUTH SOUTH FINALLY MOVE TO DIVERSIFY REGION’S ECONOMY

In a move to diversify the economy of the region, the six states of the South-South geopolitical zone will be brainstorming in Asaba, Delta State to explore export potential in that regard.

To that extent, the Delta State Government in collaboration with the Nigerian Export, Import Bank (NEXIM) will host the South-South geo-political zone’s Export Enlightenment and Engagement Programme from Tuesday, January 28 and Thursday, 30, 2020 in Asaba.

The programme with the theme, “Maximising the Export Potential of the South-South Region for Economic Growth,” will be the first in the series to be organised in the different geopolitical zones of the country during the year.

It is in furtherance of NEXIM Bank’s mandate of promoting diversification of the Nigerian economy and boosting non-oil exports and would be declared open by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.
