The proposed construction of 5, 000 units of shops in Asaba, Delta State would attract investors to the state capital, the President of Asaba Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (ASACCIMA), Chief Uju Udeme has said.
Chief Udeme said this when he led members of the ASCCIMA to inspect the site for the Asaba International Trade Centre which will have 5, 000 units of shops, warehouses, among others.
According to him, the ASACCIMA would partner with KANMA Properties Development Company Limited in ensuring that the completion of the project is a reality, emphasizing that not only indigenes of Asaba, Deltans but people of neighbouring states would benefit from the gigantic project which will have a parking space for more than 500 vehicles at a time.
“It is wise to have this type of investment, apart from Asaba and the people of Delta State, a lot of persons would benefit from the project,” Chief Udeme said.
Former Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development in the state who is a member of the ASACCIMA, Chief Adora Giwa-Amu described the project as very good, stating, “we have come, we have seen and we believe.”
The Managing Director of KANMA Properties Development Company Limited, Chief Kennedy Kanma informed members of the ASACCIMA that the market was designed to be a landmark and planned from inception to be the new business hub of the region and provide a phenomenal shopping experience for both buyers and sellers who do business there.
He disclosed that the trade centre is also a place where trade fairs and exhibitions can be organized on a regular basis because of the vast and expansive areas of land reserved to make regular exhibitions and trade fairs possible.
“It has provision for business suites, large warehouses for manufacturers, distributors and wholesalers who want a depot or distribution point close to buyers of their goods and also has lots of smaller shops for retailers where samples can also be displayed.
“The principle objectives of Asaba International Trade Centre is to boost trade for those who own shops in it, provide a good atmosphere for business and to be a landmark destination brand for the region.”
