The Anambra State Emerging Entrepreneurs Network is seeking a collaboration on trade and leadership skills opportunities with Niger Republic.
The President, ASEEN, Mr Chinedu Aniagbaoso, stated this in Awka, on Tuesday, following the return from a six-day trade mission to Niamey, the capital of Niger.
Aniagbaoso said ASEEN was working in collaboration with National Association of Chambers of Commerce and Industry Mines and Agriculture Youth Entrepreneurs, Anambra chapter, to achieve the aim.
He said the mission was to offer a first hand experience of the West African country and establish business collaboration as part of efforts to boost trade interaction among West Africa countries.
According to him, “Our visit to Niger was to add flesh to our intention to collaborate with Niger to deepen the process of growing the African economies through promotion of trade and services.
“Niger Republic is the only country in Africa that has a joint commission with Nigeria, we hope to explore and facilitate trade and services opportunities between the two countries to the advantage of many Nigerian youths.
“The mission was very insightful because we discussed areas of mutual and economic benefits to both countries which many Nigerians neglect.”
