We Are Investment Friendly…Governor Otti

...Our Policies In Abia Are Geared Towards Supporting Businesses To Grow


Abia State Governor, Dr. Alex Otti says the policies of his government are geared towards supporting and attracting businesses in the state.

The Governor stated this when he met with the Managing Director and management team of the Inner Galaxy Steel Company limited , who visited him.

He said that the State is investment friendly and pro business, maintaining that it is his desire to see businesses to grow.

“It is our policy to support industry. Some of the things we are doing are geared towards supporting existing industries and attracting new ones.

I encourage you to continue to do business in Abia state because we are investment friendly. We have just set up the Abia Industrial Innovation Park (AIIP) in Owaza. If there are some collaborations, since you are already in Ukwa West, we will tell the Managing Director of the AIIP to engage with you.”

According to the Governor, it is only when investments grow that they can employ the teeming unemployed Abia youths.

He charged the company on fair labour practices as a way of attracting government’s support while allaying their fears of clamping down on them based on previous allegations of not providing conducive working environment for their workers .

He also encouraged the company to collaborate with the Abia Industrial Innovation Park (AIIP) in Owaza, Ukwa West LGA to take advantage of the opportunities provided in the area .

Earlier, the Managing Director, Inner Galaxy Steel Company limited, Mr. Lin Shanbiao explained that their company located at Ukwa West LGA is a conglomerate of four companies that are into iron production, trailer parts assembly, battery production for auto mobiles and recycling of used bottles.

He said their visit was to intimate the Governor about their activities and to see how to partner the state government in various ways. He stated that the company is facing labour shortages and encouraged interested Abia youths to come forward and work with them.
