The Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Dr. Okechukwu Enelamah has called for active collaboration between the Organised Private Sector (OPS) and the government.

He said the long-term objective of nation building can only take place when there is synergy between the government and the OPS.

The Minister stated this during a visit by the members of the OPS, who were on a visit to present a report on Ports’ Reform led by the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) in Abuja, pointing out that nation building is collective and a long-term process that needs to be approached with humility by all involved.

“For that to happen, there needs to be active collaboration between businesses and the government,” he said, adding that government is committed to ports reforms and that trading across borders is a key plan of PEBEC’s reform efforts.

“The ministry is indeed a ministry of enabling environment. We want this engagement between the government and the private sector to continue. There needs to be an active collaboration and we are here to help.”

LCCI President, Babatunde Paul Ruwase, praised Enelamah for his sustained intervention across the Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), making industries and the economy to operate more efficiently.

 

As the Vice Chairman of the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC), your efforts over the last few years on ease of doing business is noteworthy and this is beginning to yield positive results, Ruwase told the minister.
