Delta State is strategically located with high and profitable investment opportunities in the transport and Environmental sectors. The state is also blessed with several solid minerals and agricultural produce that can be exploited at any scale. Private participation in infrastructural development particularly in roads, bridges, airports and rail lines are potential investment areas with high returns. Investors should therefore take advantage of these opportunities.
It is pertinent to note that Road construction is capital-intensive and the resources available to Government cannot effectively meet the yearnings of the populace for a good road network in the State. The time is ripe for alternative sources of funding the construction of roads in the State. In the light of the foregoing, the State Government is considering and working to create an enabling environment for the implementation of the under listed alternative sources for funding road construction:
- Build, Operate and Transfer (BOT).
- Private Public Partnership (PPP).
- Development Financing.
