Kwara State Governor, Abdulfatah Ahmed says his government would soon establish an export processing zone in the state.
Ahmed made this known in Ilorin while receiving management of the Bank of Industry (BOI) led by its managing director and chief executive officer, Mr Olukayode Pitan.
According to him, the processing zone will encourage exportation of goods from the state and its neighbouring states to enhance its internal generated revenue and boost the state economic activities.
He said that arrangement was on top gear to fast-track the development of the free trade zone in the state.
The governor further stressed that the zone would generate more job opportunities for the youth across the state as a result of economic activities from the zone.
