She disclosed insights from NIPC’s recently updated digital database of State IPAs, encouraging them to leverage on NIPC’s resources including the One-Stop Investment Centre (OSIC), the OSIC Lab and the Single Window Investors’ Portal (SWIP).

The OSIC Lab is an intervention mechanism for investors to resolve issues with government agencies either at the state or federal level; SWIP is a platform that would enable NIPC leverage information and communication technology to better manage relationships with investors and process applications.

State IPAs can also benefit from NIPC’s work on the reform of Nigeria’s investment treaty regime and its expertise in the negotiation of investment agreements, she said.

NIPC continues to work closely with various government agencies to support the promotion of investment prospects in the states.
