It is expected that the year 2018 will see the laying of foundations, and practical implementation of key EoDB reforms that will further drive and broaden some of the key strategic objectives of the state Comprehensive Development Framework (CDF), including;
- enhancement of the visibility of the State by creating greater awareness of the State among key audiences as a viable investment destination,
- attracting and facilitating private sector investment in key sectors and support the growth of existing investors especially in the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) sector,
- enabling the development of a competitive regulatory environment, including infrastructure and services that will support private sector investments, and
- creating synergy and promote co-operation and collaboration between State agencies whose activities influence the investment climate in Jigawa in the direction that would enhance greater private sector participation in economic development in the State.
