Akwa Ibom has the best natural location for a sea port with 13 metres depth that can bring in large ocean lining vessels. We are inviting a lot of international investors to come in and develop a major seaport in the state that will serve nigeria.

"We do not regard investing in Africa as a risk, but as an opportunity. We firmly believe the continent is living up to its long- held potential and will emerge as a major region in the international economy over the coming years. By ensuring our raw materials and alumina refining capacity is close to our aluminium smelting operations, we reduce transport costs and can move materials to the smelter more quickly. This maximises our competitive advantage on the world market," Alexander Livshits, United Company Rusal, director for International and Special Projects operating from Ikot Abasi, Akwa Ibom State.

My administration is committed to creating an industrialised state that would be an investor's haven where the activities in the Akwa Ibom International Airport (AKIA), the seaport, the world class entertainment centre with the Theme Park and the Ibaka Free Trade Zone are inexplicably interwoven to produce pleasurable ride for residents and tourists on classical road network. 

The industrial drive of my administration cannot be ignored, especially with the establishment of the Ibaka Free Trade Zone which on completion is expected to provide employment for over 10,000 Akwa Ibom citizens.

I have also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with a number of indigenous multi-national companies and financial institutions to tap the abundant investment potentials of the state. The companies included Mortgage Banks; Union Bank Plc, ExxonMobile; Petrogenesis Oil company, RUSAL, Julius Berger Plc, Costain Plc etc which all pledged their readiness to help build the state's economy.
