The German Development Corporation (GIZ) in collaboration with the Niger state government says it is implementing different policies in the state in a move to boost investment opportunities in the state.

The collaboration under the ‘Pro-poor growth and promotion of employment in Nigeria’ – (SEDIN) is targeted at exploring investment opportunities in the 36 states of the country with a view to boost economic growth and diversification.

Speaking at Policy workshop for Niger state government and private sector partners in Abuja yesterday,  the Policy Adviser, GIZ-SEDIN in Niger state, Mr. Habu Ahmadu said the aim of the public – private sector dialogue was to address some challenges relating to economic investments in the state.

“Niger state has a lot of investment prospects which is why as part of the policy implementation drive, we have compiled a state wide investment incentives and opportunities for prospective investors.

“The idea behind it is that we don’t want to have investment in silos, rather we came up with a compendium to guide investors. Additionally, we have directed Ministries, Departments and Agencies of government in the state to propose incentives that will support investment facilitations,” he said.

Ahamdu added that GIZ-SEDIN is currently providing support to the Niger state government for the development of MSME policy in the state.

Earlier in his address, the Secretary to the Niger state government, Ahmed Ibrahim Matane said the state government has worked overtime with the private sector as part of efforts to bring investment inflow into the state, while reiterating the state government’s commitment to collaborations with the private sector.
