PwC’s Study and Edo’s Path to Economic Prosperity

By John Mayaki

No country can grow and prosper economically without a sustainably favourable environment that enables business to thrive. Indeed, no state can flourish economically and progressively improve the socioeconomic condition of its people if it lacks workable economic policies and business-friendly atmosphere.
 
To engender economic prosperity, those who drive the machinery of government must manifestly see to it that they constantly initiate and implement policies that make for the thriving of business and competitiveness, and continually address challenges that may hamper the booming of business even as they beat every path of available opportunities therein. To do otherwise is to stagnate, nurture poverty, and worsen the human condition.
