The Nigerian Investment Promotional Council is to collaborate with the Israeli embassy to seek and explore all viable options that can attract, improve and position the country as a destination of choice for investors.
This disclosure was made by the Acting Executive Secretary, NIPC, Mr. Emeka Offor, in a statement issued on Monday and seen by Nairametrics.
He reiterated the Commission’s commitment in seeking and exploring all viable options that can attract, grow and position the country as an investment destination of choice to investors.
He said, “Nigeria has the most startups in Africa and a dominant force in the tech space but falls short on critical elements that help startups to thrive beyond their founding.
“These critical elements such as digital infrastructure and lack of investment require investors engagements and start-up supports which the Government of Israel through the i-FAIR initiative is bridging.
According to him, the i-FAIR initiative was created by a partnership between the Embassy of Israel’s Skill G Innovative Center and the Nigerian Government.
The initiative targets 5 focus areas-Agriculture & Food Security, Food Technology, Renewable Energy/Environmental Management, Medical Devices/Simulation and Social Responsibility/Solutions for Personal responsibilities.
