Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, Governor of Kano state located in North-Western part of Nigeria, has urged Indian entrepreneurs to invest in apparel manufacturing in his state.
Indian garment investors should utilize the abundant natural resources and manpower available in the Kano state, said the Governor during his visit to India to attend a three-day India International Garment Fair 2013 held in New Delhi last month. 
He added that India has several decades of experience and latest technology in the apparel manufacturing sector, which can be utilized for improving the quality of garment production and generating new job opportunities in Kano state.
In a statement, Mr. Kwanksawo expressed his interest in upgrading few of the garment production units in the state.
In addition, he said the Kano state government provides conducive climate for investors.
During his visit, the Governor also visited one local garment manufacturer and discussed collaboration with his state government for establishing a similar apparel production unit in Kano.
