Kaduna Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Mines and Agriculture (KADCCIMA), yesterday sought for partnership of Peoples Daily Newspaper for the coverage of the forthcoming Kaduna International Trade Fair.
The President, KACCIMA, Dr. Muheeba F. Dankaka who led a delegation to Peoples Daily in a courtesy visit, said the Fair would house over ten (10) countries, therefore, would require adequate publicity especially in promoting made in Nigeria products, which she said,was the focus of the trade fair.
Dr. Dankaka who gave the theme of the fair as: “Promoting Commerce, Industry and Agriculture for International Competitiveness” said, it was intended to compliment the effort of the government towards revamping the economy to drive investments in agriculture, manufacturing, trade, services and technologies.
She said, the trade fair is scheduled to hold from Friday 23rd February to Sunday 4th March, 2018, with some flagship events during the 10-day period.
The KADCCIMA President thanked the Organisation for the support it has been giving to its activities and formally invited the Organisation to attend all the flagship events as one of the Special Guests.
In his response, the Assistant Editor/Political Editor, Alh. Ali Alkali who represented the Chief Operating Officer and Management of Peoples Daily Newspaper, appreciated the visit and assured the Chamber of the Organisation’s readiness to give the forthcoming Trade Fair adequate coverage, so as to promote the economy of the state and the country at large.
Alh. Alkali reminded the Chamber that Peoples daily is for all Nigerians, therefore, would ensure that it gives full coverage to any people oriented events.
He however, appealed to the Chamber to always remember the organisation in terms of Advert placement, adding that Traditional Media publications are now very expensive, therefore, without adverts, they may not survive.
