Deltans in Washington, USA, recently hosted the Director General of Delta Economic Summit Group, DESG, Mr. Chukwuka Monye.

At the meeting, the Deltans in Diaspora expressed their interest for their state while Mr. Monye gave insights into DESG’s plans for economic development of the state.

The DG commenced the interactive session by enlightening his hosts about the mission of DESG and the future it hopes to achieve for Delta.

He confirmed that the private sector-led think tank has made some progress since the execution of an MoU with the state government last year.

In addition to hosting a number of successful events, DESG, he said, has also established strategic partnerships with organisations such as the United States Chamber of Commerce.

The hosts expressed their support for their home state and their desire to see progress in terms of development.

According to the President of Anioma Association, Washington State Chapter, Mr. Fred Egwuatu, “We are Deltans, no matter how well we do here in the U.S., Delta is our home. Therefore, we would like to be involved in its development in any way possible.”

Others complained that it was difficult to invest and do business in the state as a number of them had made attempts but lost a lot of money due to a myriad of reasons.
