The National President of the Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture, Dele Oye, has called for increased public-private sector collaboration to strengthen free trade zone operations in the country.
Speaking on the sidelines of the emergency meeting on Free Trade Zones operations organised by the Nigeria Economic Zones Association in collaboration with the Nigeria Export Processing Zones Authority and Oil and Gas Free Zones Authority, Oye noted that stronger free trade zones would enhance economic growth.
Oye, who lauded the initiative, said the meeting would provide a fine platform to address the pressing challenges faced by free trade zone operators, which would enhance their operations and improve the economy.
Reiterating the importance of a strong and efficient free trade policy in the country, the NACCIMA president noted that the policy would enable businesses to compete successfully in the global market.
“As the president of NACCIMA, I recognise the importance of a strong and efficient free trade policy in the country, which would enable Nigerian businesses to compete successfully on the global market and expand their reach. I, therefore, commend this initiative by NEZA and its partners in the government and private sector, aimed at addressing the pressing challenges faced by FTZ operators, which will ultimately enhance their operations and improve the economy.”
