Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has said that the state is deepening investment in technology, healthcare, infrastructure, culture and the people to withstand the shocks of future pandemics.

The summit was attended by global leaders from the United Kingdom, Belgium, Poland, Czech Republic, France, Malaysia among others, with Obaseki being the only African leader to present at the summit.

According to the governor, “COVID didn’t impact us from a healthcare perspective but a livelihood perspective.

“Most of our strategy in terms of thinking of our future has been drastically changed as a result of the pandemic. Our focus is on our culture, how to engage the world to preserve our ecosystem, which includes our forestry and utilize technology to drive human development, particularly in the area of education, skill development and security”.

He said the state has a 30-year plan to develop its infrastructure and invest in our people.

“We have a technology park that would train young people to take advantage of the boom in the technology sector. We have designed a medical district,” Obaseki noted.
