Delta State Governor, Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan is to participate in an Investment Summit for Delta State during which he will meet with interested Irish investors before receiving an International Outstanding Leadership Award by Metro Éireann, Ireland’s multi-cultural newspaper.
Chike Ogeah, Delta State Commissioner for Information, who is also part of the delegation, said the government has put in place the mechanism to smoothing the process of registering concerns by foreign investors through the Delta State One Stop Shop for Investors (DSOSSI).
“The one stop shop is an investment facilitation mechanism where relevant government agencies are brought to one location, coordinated and streamlined to provide prompt, efficient and transparent services to investors”, Ogeah stated.
“This initiative will significantly help to increase knowledge of Nigeria and, in particular, Delta State among the international business community in Ireland as well as provide a forum for Nigerian and Irish business people interested in investing in Delta State to meet with the number one citizen of the state,” said Chinedu Nnadozie Onyejelem, programme director of the events.
Also on the governor’s entourage are the Commissioner for Finance, Ken Okpara; Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Dr. Kingsley Emu and Commissioner in the Directorate of Micro-credit and Poverty Alleviation, Dr. Antonia Ashiedu.
