A delegation from the Nigerian German Business Association (NGBA) and AHK Nigeria recently embarked on an interactive and fact finding mission to Delta State to explore opportunities for business by member-companies in the oil-rich state.

The trip which was prompted by the invitation of the Economic Adviser to the state governor, Mr. Afam Obiago, resulted in a meeting in Asaba, the state capital, with representatives of Chambers of Commerce from four cities in the state including Asaba, Ethiope, Sapele and Warri.

The delegation comprising  the delegate of the German delegation of Industry and Commerce in Nigeria (AHK), Mr. Andre Roenne and the Nigerian German Business Association (NGBA) Chief Operating Officer, Mrs. Jennifer Anoyika, also paid courtesy visit to the state’s Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Dr. Chris Ekiyor.

According to Mrs. Anoyika, the delegation was well received and opportunities for German companies in all sectors including energy, construction and technology were discussed. During the visit, Dr.Ekiyor expressed keen desire for the participation of German investors in various initiatives in the state, particularly the Export Free Zone under construction.

The delegation also visited the Delta State One-Stop-Shop Initiative (DSOSSI) which is positioned as a destination for investors looking to do business in Delta State. DSOSSI is an investment facilitation mechanism where relevant government agencies are brought to one location, coordinated and streamlined to provide prompt, efficient and transparent services to investors
