Heartland Professionals Network, HPN, a think-tank of Imo State Professionals has emerged to support the socio-cultural, economic, educational and industrial advancement of the State.
Heartland Professionals Network is a group of distinguished Imo Professionals who are persuaded by a civic responsibility to support the creation of a roadmap for the socio-cultural, economic, educational and industrial development of Imo State.
The group, according to a statement by Prof. Chijioke Nwaozuzu, the newly appointed Director of Emerald Energy Institute of the Federal University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria, intends to initiate activities that will galvanize Private Sector efforts in the areas of human capital development, agriculture, infrastructure, industrialization, public sector reforms and social re-engineering. Membership of the group is comprised of individuals who have distinguished themselves in both the public and private sectors.
HPN hopes to accomplish its goals by leveraging on members’ experiences to produce a blueprint which can serve as a roadmap to move Imo state from the backwaters to the forefront of national development. The group’s modus operandi is advisory in nature, and such advice is intended to be supplied to any organization gratis. HPN plans to organize conferences, workshops, seminars and symposia to educate and inform Imo Citizens on wealth creation, and civic responsibility.
HPN is committed to supporting the efforts of the government of the day in Imo State to deliver good governance to “Ndi Imo.” Our focus on the areas of healthcare, education, agriculture, manufacturing and infrastructural development is backed by an unprecedented network of experts, technocrats, academics and industry leaders that are domiciled in the country and the diaspora.
Heartland, www.heartlandprofessionals.net, the statement said further, is not a political organization. Membership of HPN is open to Imo Citizens who have distinguished themselves in their areas of endeavor and are committed to the aims and objectives of Heartland Professionals Network.
