Minister seeks diversification into bio-economy to curb unemployment
Minister of State, Budget and National Planning, Clem Ikanade Agba, has called for a co-ordinated approach for harnessing the inherent potentials of bio-economy towards addressing the employment challenge in the country.
Agba, who made this call yesterday in Abuja at a two-day national bio-economy strategy awareness workshop, said: “Nigeria as a tropical developing country has huge potentials in bio resources, especially biomass, which could be harnessed to create wealth, jobs and enhance the growth and development of the country.”
According to the minister, the bio-economy strategy plays a dual role of promoting the growth and diversification of an economy and would support the country in meeting its commitments in the Paris Agreement.
