Aganga: Top 100 Businesses Key to Economic Growth
The Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Mr. Olusegun Aganga, has described the Top 100 Businesses Initiative as a bold effort to recognise and celebrate major investors and companies that are contributing to the development of Nigerian economy.
The minister said this while meeting members of the Top 100 Businesses Assessment Committee in Abuja at the weekend.
Aganga said the top companies to be honoured had proven to be good corporate citizens and had contributed tremendously not only to make Nigeria the largest economy in Africa but one of the fastest growing economies in the world.
He said: “We intend to use this Top 100 Businesses Presidential Award Dinner to say big thank you to those companies for their firm commitment and belief in our economy and to charge them to do more by bringing more investments to Nigeria.
“It is also aimed at creating a platform for public-private sector interactions on Nigerian economic policies.”
Aganga charged the committee Chairman, Mr. Jim Obazee, and other members to bring their rich experience and cherished integrity to bare in arriving at the Top 100 Businesses.
