The proposed Delta Commercial City project has been identified as a move that will bring industrial revolution and world class market center to Delta State. The State Deputy Governor, Barr. Kingsley Otuaro, stated this when he played host to five investors involved in the actualization of the project at his office, in Asaba.

Otuaro said the project being driven by private investors is in line with the prosperity agenda of the state government and called on other investors to maximize the peaceful atmosphere in the state to do more business.

The State Deputy Governor assured the investors and people that government will give them the necessary assistance to ensure that the one stop shop for international trade is realized soon.

While saying that Government alone cannot meet all the needs of the people, he expressed government's willingness to use its scarce resources to create wealth and bring about total urban renewal. He enjoined Deltans to redouble their support for the present administration in the actualization of its set goals.

The Commissioner for Economic Planning, Dr. Kingsley Emu, who led the team of investors, said the project to be cited by the Asaba head bridge will cover three hundred and sixty hectares of land.

Dr. Emu said the contribution of government was the provision of land space for the project and affirmed that the trade centre will positively boost the economy of the state and connect Delta to both the local and international business moguls.

One of the investors of the proposed business centre, Mr. Olawale Rhodes-Vivour, said the construction of the project will take off immediately, stressing that on completion, it will be the biggest industrial complex in the whole Africa.

He thanked the State Government for fulfilling its part of the bargain and pledged that the project will be done in line with the terms of agreement.
