Governor of Abia State Okezie Ikpeazu said on Sunday that some American investors would soon visit the state to explore its investment opportunities.

Speaking with newsmen at the Government House, Umuahia, on his return from the U.S., Ikpeazu said that during the trip, he held discussions on the possibility of establishing a cancer machine factory in the state.

He said that he also spoke with a team of health experts on how to upgrade the existing health facilities in the state to international standard.

Ikpeazu said that investors from Philadelphia were also expected in Abia to start the greenhouse technology, the modern trend in agriculture.

He explained further that he had commenced discussions for a partnership between the state and some U.S.-based investors in the education, trade and commerce sectors to move the state forward.

He said that the state of Maryland would collaborate with Abia State University, Uturu, to assist the institution in the areas of equipment and facilities.

Ikpeazu said that some Abia indigenes were currently studying how to transfer the technology of shoe-making machines from Turkey to Abia.

He said that the road rehabilitation in Aba and Umuahia had been smooth, adding that it had been delayed due to the heavy rains. (NAN)
