Ogun ready for 11th edition of Gateway International Trade Fair - Commissioner

By Our Correspondent

The Ogun State Government says it is working towards making the 11th Gateway International Trade Fair slated for April, 2022 the best ever in the history of the State by increasing the number of exhibitors and products at the event, while making it more attractive to participants.

Commissioner for Industry, Trade and Investment, Mrs. Kikelomo Longe gave the assurance in Abeokuta, while playing host to the new executive members of the Ota-Agbara Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (OTAGCCIMA) led by its President, Mrs. Cynthia Saka.

‘’We are incorporating different ideas into the Fair this year, as we plan to increase the number of local and international exhibitors to make the event an exciting experience for participants”, Longe stated.

The Commissioner called on the Association to support the government by mobilising its members to participate actively and exhibit their products at the event, noting that the interest of the present administration in creating enabling environment for businesses in Ota and Agbara axis led to the agreement between the Federal and State governments for the reconstruction of the Atan-Lusada-Agbara road.

She charged them to register their businesses on the State’s business premises permit portal via businesspermit.ogunstate.gov.ng, stressing that the data gathered through the registration portal would help the government plan and further assist businesses to thrive.

Speaking earlier, Mrs. Saka said that the Business Membership Organisation of the Chamber would continue to support the State government to improve businesses in the State, as well as boost its revenue.

“As the Chamber in the axis with the largest concentration of industries in the country, we will continue to partner with the State government in its move for rapid economic and industrial development”, Saka said.

Also present at the meeting are the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Mr. Olu. Ola. Aikulola and Directors.
