Governor Akinwunmi Ambode has said the government would always create an enabling environment for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs).
Ambode said this at the 3rd Lagos State Micro Small and Medium Enterprises Fair where he added that the government would always partner with MSMEs to grow the economy.
He was represented by the Commissioner for Special Duties Seye Oladejo who revealed that the government is putting in place policies to help entreprenuers.
“One of such programmes is the MSME Exclusive Fair which is the flagship trade fair and exhibition in the State that gives indigenous small businesses increased leverage for local market access and global visibility,” the governor said.
According to him, “As a people-oriented government, we shall continue to design and implement policies and programmes that would accelerate the actualization of our goals of sustainable trade, industrial and economic development.
“We are, therefore, emboldened to call on the Organised Private Sector to continue to collaborate with our government in our bid to enhance the quality and overall performance of our MSMEs for business prosperity and economic development of Lagos state and Nigeria as a whole.
“In terms of small business infrastructure, we are fast-tracking the construction of the Imota Light Industrial Park, Ikorodu which would complement existing industrial estates in the state upon completion.”
