THE National President of the Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA), Chief Bassey Edem, has charged the Lagos State government to facilitate a permanent site for the hosting of the annual Lagos International Trade Fair, which holds in every November, in the state.
The NACCIMA boss made this call at the ongoing fair, in Lagos.
While emphasizing the importance such fairs hold for any economy, the NACCIMA boss argued that the initiative needed every government support in order to achieve the aims and objectives for which they are set up.
He therefore appealed to the government of the state to facilitate the process of getting a permanent site for the annual Fair, as a way of growing the annual trade exhibition and further enhancing the economy of the state.
“Trade Fair, such as this, needs to be supported heavily by governments in order to attract investors and achieve its goal of economic development. That is why I’m appealing to the state government to help facilitate the process of getting a permanent site for this annual fair,” he stated.
