Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Adeniyi Adebayo, gave assurance to investors while addressing a delegation of Daniel Franco Institute.
The institute visited the minister to seek his support for the setting up of the Rabelat Entrepreneurship Centre for Animal Husbandry in Nigeria.
Adebayo told his guests that the Federal Government would continue to do its best to make the country a safe destination for investors.
In a statement issued in Abuja by his media aide, Ifedayo Sayo, the minister said his ministry had the mandate of facilitating the development of viable non-oil commodities.
This, he said, was in line with quality management systems, geared towards boosting indigenous food and animal production, consumption/sustainability, as well as acceptability at targeted international markets for foreign exchange earnings.
“It is imperative for the ministry to engage the institute to deliberate on the nature of strategic partnership and level of collaboration,” Adebayo stated.
He said the training arm would focus on the basic studies in animal husbandry and entrepreneurship, as well as provide the platform for trainees to select, breed, care for, process and market livestock and small animals.
