Begins with courtesy visit to commissioner for local government affairs Cross River, Hon Mrs Stella Oreme Odey-Ekpo.
During the visit, the DG IPB informed the Commissioner that since investments are domiciled in various local government areas the Governor H.E prof. Sen. Ben Ayade had instructed that all LGAs be immediately profiled for investments.
She stated that there was a need to interface with all the chairmen of LGAs and get their investment profile showcasing soil mapping, available areas for investments.
She reiterated the need for collaboration with chairmen to sensitise the public on the industrialisation drive of the Governor and that through proper integration, collaborative investments councils can also increase their IGR as she stressed the need to have investment desk officers in each LGA.
Responding, the Commissioner assured the DG of their full cooperation and stated that this would encourage councils to increase their economic activity.
