The Jamaican High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr Esmond Reid, says plans are underway for his country to start sourcing for vehicles from Innoson Vehicles Manufacturing (IVM), in Nigeria.
Reid, in company of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Geoffrey Onyeama, made this known during a facility tour of IVM plant in Nnewi, Anambra on Saturday.
“For us, it is a tremendous opportunity to witness vehicle manufacturing taking place here in Nigeria, which is one of our brothers in the South.
“It is also a chance to be able to discuss commercial opportunities for sourcing vehicles from Nigeria.
“This is my first visit. I will go and consult with my stakeholders back home to look at the timeline and determine the negotiations and engagements and when we will start the business of sourcing the vehicles”.
Assessing the plant, the high commissioner described it as top-class, promising to encourage Jamaican citizens to come and see for themselves.
