The association has since gone about the business of triggering the health care and economic development of the State, through their collective efforts in order to deliver those basic amenities in the state that has eluded us in the past.
The union which displayed total confidence and trust in the leadership ability of the convener, Senator Ubah has since started their vital interventions from the health sector, and is set to extend it to other sectors of the state economy.
The International Summit will consist of strategic sessions with the Investment Support and Promotion Agency of Turkey (ISPAT) and other investment agencies and Chambers of Commerce in Turkey.
