The Special Adviser to the Governor of Benue State on International Investments, Sir Alex Addingi, has revealed the state government readiness to welcome investors at the 2024 Benue International Investment Summit (BIIS).

Sir Addingi, the Vice Chairman of the Local Organising Committee (LOC), who spoke to some journalists yesterday said Benue State, as a North Central Nigeria strategic hub for economic development to investors.

Addingi who is deputizing the deputy governor, Sam Ode on the local committee informed that the event is expected to bring together local and international investment community, industry experts, and investors to explore innovative ideas, foster collaborations, and catalyze mutually beneficial engagements and discussions.

The Vice Chairman noted that the philosophy behind BIIS goes beyond mere discussions as he insisted that it was a call to action adding that it would envision the birth of ‘economic city (ies)’ that would not only attract foreign direct investment but also nurture a vibrant ecosystem for local businesses.

BIIS, according to him seeks to capitalise on the rich and comparatively advantageous potentials of Benue State, leveraging her unique resources, skilled workforce, and generally untapped opportunities.

Speaking further Addingi pointed out that BIIS draws inspiration from the seven pillars of the Rev Fr Hyacinth Alia led Government of Benue State, “to build an economy based on functional education, employment generation, agricultural development and growth with focus on food production and processing in a secured environment that ensures food security, wealth creation and poverty reduction.”

The Special Adviser expressed happiness that already his office was in touch with scores of investors that have already indicated interest in the summit, which is due to take place in the second quarter of this year.
