Currently, if you’re finding it difficult knowing where to look for the needed skills to grow your business, worry no more as the Abuja Enterprise Agency, AEA, has come up with strategies to support ideas.
It may be wise to start heading to AEA now. The agency has evolved strategies to eliminate regulatory bottlenecks that hamper business growth and promote ethical business practice in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
According to the Agency report, the Acting Managing Director of the agency, Malam Shehu Abdulkadir, disclosed this at the 8th Edition of Business 360, held at the Entrepreneurial Complex of AEA, on Wednesday in Abuja.
The Acting Managing Director addressed the topic “Leveraging on Technology and Innovation for Enterprise Productivity” at the event.
Abdulkadir said that the theme was apt and borne out of the experience Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises, MSMEs, faced during the COVID-19 pandemic.
He explained that the idea of business 360 was conceived to provide all the relevant business development services such as training, enterprise promotion, market linkage, regulatory clinics, business advisory and other critical areas on demand to entrepreneurs who require such services.
He added that it was designed to bring business regulatory bodies, business service providers, business owners and business developers together towards creating a synergy that would be beneficial to the growth of businesses in the FCT.

Acting Managing Director of the agency, Malam Shehu Abdulkadir, said that MSMEs are constrained in resources such as technology, finance, marketing and human resources.
He noted that the ability of MSMEs to compete in the global market depends on their access to these resources, and those with better access to these resources can exhibit better innovation and economic performance.
According to him, the 8th edition of business 360 will serve as a platform to actualise one of the agency’s cardinal objectives to promote the adoption of technology by MSME.
He also said that the programme would provide an opportunity for interaction between the private and public sectors.
The programme, according to him, will no doubt lead to greater synergy and an enabling environment for MSMEs to thrive.
