New MAN president to partner FG on sector’s competitiveness
Speaking at the association’s yearly general meeting held in Lagos, he applauded Executive Order 003, which aims to increase the level of patronage of made-in-Nigeria goods by public procurement agencies.
Mansur who is also an Executive Director of Dangote Industries Limited stated that the Order 003 shows that the present administration is serious in building local productive capacity, adding, “we will work with the federal government to ensure that the Nigerian manufacturing sector is competitive”.
He reiterated his commitment to strengthen the association’s level of collaboration and interaction with the federal government to ensure that the Executive Order 003 is fully implemented to boost local patronage of made-in-Nigeria products.
He said MAN would continue to engage all the Ministries Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to showcase made-in-Nigeria goods.
“When this contact is made, we would encourage its members to compete both in terms of price and quality.
I believe if we continue to work with the government in this manner, we would bridge the gap between us and the public sector requirements,” he said.
