Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello, state governor of Niger has urged Indonesian investors to set up textile manufacturing plants in the West African country. While hosting Harry Purwanto, the Indonesia Ambassador to Niger in his office in Minna, the governor invited Indonesian firms to cash in on the availability of high-quality cotton in Niger.

The governor said that Niger has abundant raw material and Indonesian companies, which produce fabrics known for their uniqueness, can leverage it and start producing textiles in the country, according to Niger media reports.

Bello also said that the favourable business environment of Niger will ensure profitable returns for the Indonesian investors. The Niger governor also said that the country wants to partner with Indonesia to develop its SME sector.

The Asian country also asked for land to set up an industrial park at Tegina in Rafi local government area for manufacturing products and Bello agreed to provide it.

The Indonesian ambassador said that both countries have a lot in common and can benefit from their diplomatic relationship that has lasted over 50 years. (KD)
