Delta to invest in job creation —Okowa

GOVERNOR Ifeanyi Okowa

Desirous of turning Delta State to a major manufacturing centre and commercial hub in line with the state government economic policies, Governor  Ifeanyi  Okowa and members of the state delegation to the first Nigeria-China Governors Investment Forum took time off to tour some major manufacturing companies in Beijing, China.

The idea behind the tour was to initiate preliminary talks with core investors to establish factories and other production centres across the state in line with the SMART Agenda of the Okowa administration with a view to providing thousands of jobs for both young graduates and unskilled labourers.

The governor in a statement by his Executive Assistant on Communication, Fred Oghenesivbe, said “Investment in jobs creation, infrastructure development and other socioeconomic advancement initiatives are uppermost in the scheme of things in my administration and we are ready to go extra miles to attract local and international investors to Delta State.

“I am here in China for serious business and not for sightseeing. I am not here for tea party,  I am here to search everywhere in Beijing to engage investors, manufacturers, big time farmers and prime companies that we can partner us, help us revolutionize Delta State’s economy and turn our state to a super and prosperous economic hub.

“We need to make thousands of our youths great entrepreneurs.”
