The Federal Government has begun moves to introduce business matchmaking platform to match foreign businesses with local opportunities.
The FG also seeks to incorporate the website of its Ministry of Foreign Affairs and those of all Foreign Missions into one unified portal to assist diaspora Nigerians in need of help.
The management of the unified web portal is proposed to be handled under a Public Private Partnership (PPP) model.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Geoffrey Onyeama disclosed this on Wednesday when he led a delegation from the ministry to the Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission (ICRC) to seek its regulatory guidance to manage the portal using a PPP model.
The Minister and his team who were received by the Director General of the ICRC, Michael Ohiani and other management staff, briefed the ICRC on the project and the Ministry’s quest for an effective management.
Another aspect of it is the business match-making platforms to provide global jobs and opportunities to individuals and businesses in Nigeria,, a statement Manji Yarling, the Ag. Head, Media and Publicity said..
“We have been looking for partners. So we are here to present our projects for you to see where there could be possibilities of co-operation. I have been told that we can sell this to the private sector,” he said.
