Governor Willie Obiano has restated his administration’s commitment in creating an enabling environment for businesses to thrive and investors to come into the state.

Governor Obiano stated this during a Master Planning and Stakeholder’s Consultative Round table on Nnewi Automotive Industrial Park held at Nnewi.
The programme organized by the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment in collaboration with United Nations Industrial Development organization(UNIDO) was to fashion out ways on how to successfully implement the automotive park at Nnewi.
The Governor represented by the Secretary to the state government, Professor Solo Chukwulobelu, said the state government is working seriously to see the project come on stream as it is the part of critical infrastructural projects his administration is driving at, citing Onitsha Inland Port Development and Umueri Airport as projects on board.
He revealed that the project is a major industrial project that will open up job opportunities and grow the economy of the state.
The member representing Nnewi North and South at the House of Representatives, Honourable Chris Azubogu who is the initiator of the programme, said Nnewi is a commercial nerve center with manufacturing industries and commended the security initiative of the state government.
In his remark, the Commissioner for Economic Planning, Budget and Development Partners, Mr. Mark Okoye, said the gigantic project which will be handled by Mahindra Company from India will cost about two hundred and forty million dollars, stating that it requires the coordination of the federal and state government to ensure the successful implementation of the project.
Contributing, the Commissioner for Trade, Industry, Commerce and Wealth Creation, Dr Christian Mmadubuko, said the sighting of the Automotive Park at Nnewi is a welcome development as Nnewi is a major manufacturing city in West Africa, calling on all stakeholders involved to support the move as the state government is ever ready for the project to come board.
