Federal and States

Wauschkuhn said the essence of the dialogue was, therefore, to strengthen coordination of activities done by the Federal and States MDAs as well as donor organisations, geared toward the development of MSMEs in the country.

Akinropo Omoware

Represented by Akinropo Omoware, Head of Policy, SEDIN, Wauschkuhn said  “we believe that the forum will provide opportunity for stakeholders in the MSMEs eco-system in the state to interact on the key challenges, foster common understanding and proffer some solutions”.

Godwin Obaseki

Also speaking, Gov. Godwin Obaseki of Edo, said that one could not underscore the fact that MSMEs were the engine of any economy, as they remained the largest employers of labour.

“We have struck strategic collaboration with local amd international partners to ensure the promotion of the private sector in the state.
