NIMASA set to increase Gross Domestic Product
The Director-General of Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA), Dr. Dakuku Peterside, has said the Agency was set to contribute to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
He said, “We are looking at the entire gamut of mix that is necessary to unleash our potential in the industry. All I can say is that going forward, maritime is positioned to contribute substantially to our GDP and by extension the growth of our economy.’’
Peterside said many countries had built up and taken advantage of their maritime sub-sector to grow their GDP and it had yielded results and urged Nigeria to replicate same.
