Enugu Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (ECCIMA) has advocated promotion of locally made goods at the global market to attract foreign exchange as a way of resolving the current economic crisis.

Its president, Odeiga Jideonwo, while announcing the 35th Enugu International Trade Fair, billed to open on April 5, noted that local production and promotion were important to restore the Naira and national economy.

He insisted that the current economic challenges in the country were due to dwindling revenue from the nation’s mono foreign exchange earner – oil, stressing that the fair with the theme, “Promoting made in Nigeria products for global competitiveness” has been strategically re-engineered to have meaningful and positive effects on all stakeholders.

Jideonwo said Nigeria is blessed with so many resources to change the ugly narrative.

He stated that the agricultural sector would receive attention at the event.
