The Abia State government has received Brazilian investors for made in Aba shoe, belt and bag industries.
The Brazilian investors have expressed interest to collaborate with the State Government to boost the shoe, fashion and belt industries through direct investment, capacity building and creation of new markets for the industries.
This is in line with one of the promises made by Governor Okezie Victor Ikpeazu to Abians during his campaign.
According to him, he promised to “leverage on the things that are natural to us, those things that are fundamental to us.
“We are basically traders with talented skills.
“We have a potential energy that is innate in every Abia person or anyone of the Igbo extraction”.
He promised to tap into this innate energy encompassing our spirit, drive, determination to succeed in all our endeavours.
According to our young and dynamic Governor, a synergy of these three can take Ndi Abia and indeed Ndi Igbo to our preferred destination.
