The Lagos State Government has said its partnership with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für International Zusammenarbeit will promote the growth of Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises in the state.
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Commerce, Industry, and Cooperatives, Abiola Olowu, disclosed this, according to a statement on Monday, during a meeting of the steering committee comprising various stakeholders in Alausa, Ikeja.
He said, “Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu is passionate with his support for businesses in the state and has extended various assistance to the state’s business community, particularly MSMEs in the last three and half years. From my understanding, this partnership focuses on appropriate policy/regulatory framework and provision of infrastructure.
“I want to appreciate GIZ-SEDIN for this laudable initiative and assure you that the administration will partner with all stakeholders to promote industrial cluster development to advance the growth of MSMEs in the state.”
The Consultant on the GIZ-SEDIN project, Prof. Omo Aregbe, said, “The clustering approach is a state business that involves participation from all stakeholders to help the MSMEs to improve their competitiveness.”
