Improving Internally Generated Revenue has been described as the panacea for sustaining the tempo of development in the state.

Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra state stated this during a familiarization visit by a team of foreign Investors from Turkey, Italy and China at the Government House, Awka.

Our correspondent reports that the visit was aimed at examining the modalities involved in the construction of a Cargo airport in the state.

While reiterating that his administration has restructured the operations of the Board of Internally Revenue Service to make it more responsive and accountable, Governor Obiano, represented by his Deputy, Dr Nkem Okeke, said it is also one of the ways to increase the revenue profile of the state for sustainable development.

Governor Obiano pointed out that the Cargo Airport is one of the facilities needed in the state, bearing in mind that Anambra State is an Industrial hub of the country.

Governor Obiano, who said that the state is already in the process of exploiting its oil, expressed optimism that the Cargo Airport will be of maximum benefit, when completed.

Earlier, the leader of the delegation, Chief Tony Okowa, while appreciating Governor Obiano for the warm reception accorded them said that the visit has helped in establishing modalities that will help them embark on the project, adding that they will come back in two weeks time for further negotiations and actions.

The Chairman of the Anambra State Investment Promotion and Protection Agency (ANSIPPA), Chief Joe Billy Ekwunife, who was also present at the event, expressed confidence in the team’s ability to do a quality job.

In a vote of thanks, Chief Ekene Enefe, while assuring the investors that the state is the best place to invest, appreciated them for deeming it wise to invest in the state, expressing optimism that the visit will be fruitful.
