Eze, Sir Mike Elechi who is the Chairman of Rivers State Productivity Committee explained that the idea of local government Councils’ participation was to showcase their various cultural heritage, products and services to the international communities, positing that the trade fair also afforded the Exhibitors and participants the opportunity of learning how to grow their Businesses through the various seminars put together by the Chamber of Commerce.
He used the medium to call on other local government Councils yet to take their stand to do so, saying that the essence of the trade fair was to showcase the good work of Rivers State Government under the leadership of His Excellency Nyesom Ezenwo Wike CON, GSSRS POS Africa.
Earlier in his speech, the Chairman of Gokana local government Council, Hon. Confidence Dekor said they were at the Port Harcourt International Trade Fair to Exhibit their home made products.
