A second set of industrialists from China under the aegis of China National Building Materials Group indicated interest in investing in Gombe state, Northeast Nigeria.
The industrialists are experts in manufacturing of building materials, fireproof cement boards for ceilings, underlay, and furniture among others.
The prospective investors were received by Deputy Governor of Gombe State, Manassah Daniel Jatau in his office. They expressed interest to be part of the development story of Gombe State through investment.
The General Manager, Sinoma Nigeria Company Limited, Jackie Dai led the team stating that their products are globally recognised and that their impact spread across 192 countries.
Dai added that their concern is to be sure of the market of their product and to also find out about all the available mineral resources in the state so as to liaise with their colleagues in China to come and invest in the state.
Dai also said that their company is based in Abuja, Lagos and Kano and willing to expand to Gombe State if given the needed support by the state government.
The Deputy Governor noted with emphasis that Gombe is open to business and investors, adding that the idea behind the Industrial Park by the administration of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, is to woo investors to the state.
He assured them of available market, taking advantage of Gombe’s centrality in the North East as well as the nearness to Kano, a Mega City in the country and also the neighbouring countries of Chad, Niger and Cameroon.
