Corporate organisations and multinational companies operating in Eleme Local Government Area of Rivers State have been urged to avail themselves of the forthcoming Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) workshop for business owners to expand their production efficiency.
President of the Eleme Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Chief Gomba Okanje, gave the charge, while addressing a session of the Eleme Chambers of Commerce and Industry in Port Harcourt, recently.
He said the workshop, which was targeted at developing business potentials and expanding industrial growth was based on the Federal Government’s Ease of Doing Business (EDB) policy.
Chief Okanje, who is also the Board chairman, Elano Group of Companies, said active participation in the workshop by business owners including multinationals, would enable them to maximise their potentials for effective service delivery.
He pointed out that Eleme as a host to myriads of multinational firms and oil and gas companies was in dire need of development and urged the companies operating in the area to always live up to their corporate social responsibilities.
As the host to the oil and gas free zone authority, and two terminals (federal lighter terminal and federal ocean terminal), Okanje said Eleme was expected to replicate its strategic importance through rapid economic development.
According to him, what companies in the area need to strive effectively include key technical education, good host community policy and effective capacity to maximize possible production output.
He assured the commitment of the Eleme Chamber of Commerce and Industry to ensure a productive business climate in the area.
