He said, in a statement, that he discussed new green industrial partnership opportunities with the administration of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Ngelale said Modi’s administration had proved to be one of the world’s most committed governments on green industrial development.

“We have agreed on actionable next steps in this sphere at a time when the two most populous democracies in Asia and Africa have many shared aspirations for their economies in the present and the future,” he said.

Ngelale said he also exchanged views with the Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Sule, on the establishment of Africa’s first eco-industrial park, Evergreen City.

“In the company of the Managing Director of the Infrastructure Corporation of Nigeria (InfraCorp), Dr Lazarus Angbazo, we recorded tremendous progress in our discussions, and a deliverable set of time-bound next steps were agreed to,” Ngelale said.
