Nigerian president appoints UNIDO to his advisory board on industrialization
ABUJA, 12 May 2014 – President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan today inaugurated an industrialization advisory board that will oversee the implementation of the Nigeria Industrial Revolution Plan.
The industrialization advisory board is made up of leading private sector industrialists and investors, representatives of the public sector, and includes the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
UNIDO’s participation is in recognition of its mandate that focuses on inclusive and sustainable industrial development and the Organization’s technical advisory service provided in the development of industrial parks and clusters in a range of Member States. The board is co-chaired by Olusegun Aganga, the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, and Aliko Dangote, a leading industrialist.
“The industrialization advisory board will be responsible for developing a roadmap for the successful implementation of the Nigerian industrialization plan, a strategy that is expected to help the country on the path of inclusive and sustainable industrial development,” said Patrick Kormawa, UNIDO Representative to the Federal Republic of Nigeria and Regional Director.
