BENUE State Government and the Nigerian Export Import Bank, NEXIM have pledged mutual cooperation to boost economic activities in the state.

The state government in a statement by Adviser to the Governor on Media and ICT made available to The Guardian said Governor Samuel Ortom and NEXIM Managing Director, Roberts Orya sealed the pact when the Governor visited the management team of the financial institution in Abuja.

“We shall create the enabling environment for the private sector to thrive in our state and collaborate with you by encouraging our indigenes to do business with you and monitoring them to ensure that repayments are made as at when due,” Ortom said.

“The way to go and be able to get out of the woods is to promote public private partnership to industrialize, encourage micro, small and medium scale enterprises, commercial and trading activities as well as investment,” he stressed.

According to him these were the strong points for which his administration had passion to boost massive jobs, wealth and opportunities for unemployed youths in the state.
