The South Korean Ambassador to Nigeria, Kyu-Duk, on Tuesday said he is seeking possibilities where companies in South Korea can partner Cross River State in boosting the socio-economic activities of the area, while deepening partnership on culture and tourism.
According to the Ambassador, who expressed his country’s desire to strengthen ties between his country, Federal and State Governments in order to tap from its enormous natural resources, Cross River State is blessed with lots of solid mineral deposits which can be tapped and refined.
Speaking at the Governor’s office in Calabar, the Cross River State Capital on a courtesy visit to Governor Ben Ayade, he noted that the partnership will boost it to a more rapid economic zone owing to the fact that South Korea is one of the countries that has achieved economic development relatively within a short period.
He further disclosed that the country will look for companies who can invest in areas like, Iron and Steel, road, housing, water and transportation into the state since the state government is trying to enhance these fields.
Responding, Governor Ayade, who promised the country’s representative to Nigeria a land where to establish, urged them to take advantage of the opportunity in the shortest possible time in order to develop immediately.
He also enjoined South Koreans to take advantage of the enormous opportunities that are present in the state to expand their business horizon while strengthening cultural and economic ties.
