Talks on to set up a Vlisco unit in Benin Industrial Park
Negotiations are under way to attract Dutch firm Vlisco, one of West Africa’s largest textile firms, to set up a unit at Benin Industrial Park in Nigeria’s Edo state, according to state governor Godwin Obaseki. Benin is the capital of Edo. The park, likely to cover 996 hectares, will host textile, agro-processing, equipment manufacturing and other industries.

The governor said he is keen to make the state a textile hub, according to a Nigerian news portal.

Vilisco chief executive officer David Suddens had earlier expressed eagerness to set up a textile park in Nigeria. (DS)
