Urhobo Economic and Investment Summit – Ekpobaro 2020

Urhobo Economic and Investment Groups has announced its 2020 summit, Ekpobaro 2020 with the topic of Harnessing Agricultural Potentials for Growth and Development in Urhoboland

Diversification of the economy has been an agenda of various administrations in Nigeria over time, particularly in the back post – 1970 oil boom era. It’s not new as an economic policy stand.

Diversification, away from crude oil, has been the main focus, and the direction has been agriculture, manufacturing, services and mining, among others. It is also twofold diversification of government revenue, and diversification of output or contribution to GDP.

Urhobo Nation is unarguably blessed with numerous natural and mineral resources. Outside Oil, agriculture, which is one of the economic solid bases in Urhoboland, but has been made inconspicuous ever since which led to it being under-utilized till date.
