Mutfwang also signed a draft memorandum of understanding, with official referrals to country representatives of international partners such as United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), and International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).

These international development partners are expected to invest in Plateau State under the new administration through the Global Environment Facility (GEF) domiciled in their organizations.

Prof Bala who appreciated Mutfwang and his entourage for the visit, assured that ECN was committed to the strategic partnership with the new administration.

The ECN boss promised to immediately send a technical team to Plateau State after the Gov-elect’s inauguration on May 29th, in order to actualize the lofty proposals of the incoming government.
