The Aba International Trade Fair will hold from Nov.12 to Nov. 22, Chief Eleanya Okoroji, President of Aba Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (ACCIMA), has said.
Okoroji told newsmen in Aba yesterday that the fair had received the support of the Nigerian Association of Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (NACCIMA).
"NACCIMA has licensed ACCIMA to organise the trade fair to boost the image of Nigeria and it would be the best of its kind. We are ready to give Nigeria's economy a boost," he assured.
Okoroji said that the ACCIMA was partnering AIITEX Consortium to ensure the success of the trade fair aimed at repositioning garment and leather, which Aba was mainly noted for.
He said that the theme of the fair "Boosting Nigeria's Economy through Production for Export" was also aimed at revitalising and diversifying Nigerian economy in general and Aba business environment in particular.
He said that it would also promote Nigeria's non-oil exports, made-in-Nigeria products and agriculture and agro-based industry, among others.
Okoroji said that participants from China, Vietnam, South Korea and Turkey had made commitments to participate in the fair. (NAN)
