Minister tasks private sectors on promoting uptake of policies

The Minister of Industry Trade and Investment, Doris Uzoka Anite has called on the private sector to strengthen knowledge and practices that can systematically identify the gaps in implementing and promoting interactions between policy-makers and the agencies who can influence the uptake of policies and transform them into actions.

The minister made this call at the annual conference of the Global Shea Alliance in Abuja, stating that it is a well-known fact that without bridging the gap between policies and implementation, other efforts to improve service delivery will not be effective at all.

Anite said: “Indeed, GSA has demonstrated over the years that it is an international commodity organization like no other, with a strong commitment to offering technical assistance and market linkage, developing and implementing quality standards and best practices, community development projects and providing strong support to national associations.

“The Alliance has no doubt, challenged many other international commodity organizations through its capacity development programmes and its ability to provide business opportunities and market linkages to its members”.

I want to use this opportunity to assure both the local and international business communities that this administration will continue to provide a more secure business environment and commit more to these ideals in the interest of the economic development of Nigeria

Speaking, The United States Chargé d’Affaires David Greene expressed pride in supporting the Global Shea Alliance through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) as the USAID recently invested over $8 million under its Sustainable Shea Initiative to bolster the Shea industry in seven West African countries, including Nigeria.
