He is expected to be meeting with senior officials of the German government to foster relations between Edo State and Germany.

The Edo State Government’s development agency, EdoJobs has continued to sustain partnership with the German government through its GIZ-Skye programme, with the state leveraging the opportunity of the collaboration to positively engage its youth population, building their capacity to drive productivity and providing needed support for socio-economic growth and development.

Obaseki’s visit to Germany is the latest of the series of investment trips embarked on by the Governor to attract investments into the state to grow its economy.

The governor was at the 2022 Doha Forum in Qatar to showcase business and investment opportunities in Edo, rallying investors to take advantage of the business-friendly environment as well as incentives provided by his administration in the state to invest in new frontiers.

He was also at this year’s Annual Investment Meeting (AIM) in Dubai, with his pitch for investments in the Benin River Port, the Enterprise Park, and the Benin Inland Container Depot/Dry Port, among other big-ticket projects, in a drive to deepen development and open up the state’s economy for productivity and industrialization, among
several others.
