In its sworn plan to ensure that most entrepreneurs in the country embrace practices that can enhance productivity the National Productivity Centre (NPC) has taken the campaign to the hotel industry.
The Director General of the Centre, Dr. Paul Bdliya while addressing the participants at a national working productivity in the hotel industry held in Abuja recently, said Nigeria though endowed with abundant human and material resources is yet to fully deploy the potentials for its development which is threatening meeting of the global development set targets.
“While it is widely acknowledged that Nigeria’s rich human and material endowments give her the potential, to become Africa’s largest economy and a major player in the global market, most of these potentials have remained largely untapped, thus making the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015 a difficult task. Consequently, concerted efforts to improve productivity in a bid to revitalise all sectors of our economy have become imperative”, he said.
Dr. Bdliya explained that the importance of productivity in national building is universally recognized as no human activities fails to benefit from its improvement
He pointed out that it is not surprising that enhance productivity has remained an essential and important international determinant of real economic growth, social progress and improve standard of living of nations.
The NPC boss who spoke through the Director, Financial and Administration of the centre, Mallam Jubril Musa Yelwa, gave insight to the training of hospitality personnel is central to the development.
