Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC) on Tuesday, 16 January 2018 received at its headquarters, Commissioners of Industries, Trade and Commerce and Heads of Investment Promotion Agencies from 20 states. The meeting discussed NIPC’s plans for 2018 as well as areas of collaboration with States. The discussions focused on the importance of working together to drive sub-national business environment reforms, plans to profile investment opportuinites and projects across Nigeria using a standardised template and the need to proactively promote domestic direct investments (DDI) to ensure that more Nigerians across the country invest in Nigeria.
Later in the day, the discussions continued with a visiting delegation from the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office. Several areas of mutual interest were discussed, including a potential new programme to facilitate foreign direct investment (FDI) into selected priority sectors and countries.
The States were delighted with the meetings and promised to work closely with the Commission on its activities.
