Nigeria’s Minister of Trade and Investment, Mr Okechukwu Enelamah, yesterday in Abuja commissioned the launch of an online portal for investors called ‘iGuide Nigeria’. He said the portal would improve the country’s Ease of Doing Business.
The online portal is said to contain useful information and data for any investor who is interested in the Nigerian market.
According to the Minister, the portal has become very important, especially at a point when Nigeria’s ease of doing business lacks a positive outlook.
In his words:
The ranking of Ease of Doing Business for now is not good enough for Nigeria; we are working hard to ensure that in the next ranking the country will be among the top 10. -Enelamah
As we reported, Nigeria ranked 145 out of the 190 countries on this year’s Ease of Doing Business list.
Meanwhile, the online portal was developed by the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC).
According to the federal agency’s Executive Secretary, Yewande Sadiku, the portal would avail investors access to the right information they need to make informed decisions .
iGuide is an easy to use online platform providing investors with up-to-date and pertinent information on the processes, procedures and basic costs of doing business in Nigeria.
It provides information on starting business, labour, production factors, land, taxes, investor rights, growth sectors and opportunities.-Sadiku
