The Chinese government has expressed willingness to partner with the Kwara state government of Nigeria to develop a textile industrial park in the state, according to Nigerian media reports.

Chinese ambassador to Nigeria, Gu XiaoJie announced this recently in Abuja when the Kwara state governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed, led a state delegation with a Chinese company, Ming Bo Jin Sheng Star Company limited.

“Textile is a traditional industry to China. It is a common knowledge that Chinese textile products compete favourably with those of Germany and Italy. Our companies are also conscious of cooperate social responsibility in African countries,” said Ahmed.

Adding further he argued, “Kwara state is a gateway to the north and the south, the state is not new in midwifing realistic public private partnership as exemplified by the Shonga farms initiative, a new hotbed of commercial agriculture in Nigeria.”

“When established, the park is expected to accommodate more than 40 textile industries with the state providing necessary enabling environment to jump start the park,” he added.

The ambassador Gu XiaoJie added that China's interest in partnering with Nigeria is due to the resemblance the two countries share in terms of huge human and material resources. (NA)
