At a business roundtable meeting between the governors and Lagos based businessmen from the region, hurdles affecting the growth of business in Igbo land, general apathy of Igbos in establishing businesses in the region and so on were discussed and analysed and solutions were proffered with a resolve reached at the end and all partners promising to not only honour it, but step-up efforts to promote and attract more investors to the Eastern Regions.
