The Kanano Economic Forum, a group of business, government and civic leaders, is proposing a sustainable economic development agenda that includes a new economic growth strategy for the state.
It will also set up a “business council” to provide advice to government on policy, industry, and the environment.
Kano Mayor Roni Gonsalves said the agenda would “help create the environment for Kano’s continued economic growth and development.”
Gonsalve said the group is also seeking input from other states in the state and would work with the State and local government to “better understand what works and what doesn’t work.”
The Economic Summit is scheduled to be held on June 6-8 at the Kano state capitol.
