Responding to a question on the efficacy of the US visit, Professor Eddie Oparaoji, Chairman and Moderator of the colloquium sponsor, the Imo Global Alliance for Good Governance, (IGAGG), said “there is a huge disruption today on how we perceive global economic dynamics. The most powerful drivers of advancement and prosperity do not obey the laws of geography- namely ideas, innovation and technology. It is therefore a no-brainer, that a winning strategy, is to lay the enabling conduit from high areas of economic and innovative opportunities, like the US, in order to funnel, drive and stimulate growth in depressed economic communities, such as Imo State.”
