continued influx of foreign and local investors into the state as a
sign that the government’s initiatives and policies towards that end,
were yielding desired results.

international fashion retailers: ‘Truworths’ and ‘Identity’ at the
Enugu Shopping Mall said the situation has brought about and
unprecedented boom in economic and commercial activities in the state
and its environs while helping to reduce unemployment in the area.
She commended the management of the two companies for following the
lead of such other multinationals such as ‘Shoprite’ and ‘Game’ to
establish outlets at the shopping mall assuring them that the
government has provided all that it would take to ensure the success
of their ventures.

other investors to take advantage of the facilities and the conducive
environment put in place by the government by bringing their
businesses to Enugu for the benefit of all.
Welcoming the Enugu First Lady, the Project Manager of the Enugu
Shopping Mall, Mr Chuka Okoye disclosed that many more international
concerns had shown interest in doing business in the state adding that
the Mall was large enough to accommodate them.
He commended the state Government for the support and incentives it
has continued to give investors in the state, saying that the
disposition would ensure the sustenance of the current upswing in
economic and commercial activities in the State.
