Imo State is undoubtedly witnessing a new and sophisticated dimension of government policy entrenchments and realization.
Never has the ease of attracting direct foreign investment in IMO been more realizable ,stronger nor has the potential for businesses to flourish other than now.
The shared prosperity mantra enunciated by the administration of Gov. Hope Uzodinma has not left anyone in doubt about its desires to establish effective channels of engagement with foreign investors who in no distant time will begin to leverage on the newly created ministry of foreign affairs to establish businesses in the state with so much ease which will in turn create employment opportunities and revenue boost.
I’m under no illusion as to the positive indices that will influence the place of Gov. Hope Uzodinma in our history, given the goals he has set for himself through the creation of the ministry of foreign affairs and the appointment of Dr. Fabian ihekweme as the pioneer commissioner.
Even the most implacable critics of this administration will for sure agree that Gov. Hope uzodinma has launched the state on the path of economic prosperity, as IMO will no longer experience the old routine of endless waste of tax payers money travelling and loitering abroad in search of investors.
The ministry of foreign affairs will now serve as a window of engagement between foreign investors and the state. This conspicuous feat have further endeared IMO as a choice state for investors.
The ministry has established several partnerships in different fronts in furtherance of the goal of doing business with ease for all and sundry.
Business men and investors from all parts of the globe will benefit from the growing opportunities to profit from the wealth creation in the state.
Dr. Fabian ihekweme is a visionary technocrat who creates opportunities. Born in IMO and educated oversea, no doubt he will bring to bare his experiences, contacts and technical know-how in leveraging on the ministry in wooing foreign investors to think IMO and invest in IMO.
