Shettima woos Chinese investors
THE Borno State Government is to partner with the Republic of China to harness and develop the state’s rich agricultural and solid minerals resources, create and raise more job opportunities and income to improve the living conditions of the people in the next three years.
Speaking with newsmen in Maiduguri, Governor Kashim Shettima said: “The main purpose of my trip to China was to woo Chinese investors and other firms to come Borno State. We visited some of its factories, companies and organizations for a concrete and genuine partnership towards raising people’s living conditions that have been affected by Boko Haram insurgency for over six years.
The partnership, according to Government House sources in Maiduguri, will also address the rising rate of poverty and unemployment among the teeming youths in agricultural, commerce and solid minerals sectors of the economy.
