The European Union ( EU ) has promised to enhance Small and Medium Enterprises ( SMEs ) in Nigeria through forging of linkages and partnerships with business innovators. Mr Jean-Jacques Lennon, the European Union Senior Manager, made this known in an interview at the ongoing Lagos International Trade Fair ( LITF ) in Lagos.
Lennon said that some EU initiatives were seeking to assist SMEs to access international markets and enhance their growth potential. He also stated that the EU sees great prospects in Nigeria’s economy and wants to seize the business opportunities provided on the platform of the Lagos International Trade Fair ( LITF ) to upscale business activities for SMEs.
Lennon said that the fair was identified as a veritable platform where investors and innovators from EU could synergise toward boosting economic growth.
He said that some of the technologies exhibited by nine EU innovators would improve activities in agriculture, waste management, weather forecast, renewable energy, food safety and genetic services.
Lennon urged the Federal Government to continue with the policies and reforms that would create an enabling environment to attract investments into the country.
