We will also partner with public regulators and the organised private sector to ensure that MSMEs in the country are bankable and viable enough to access the Federal Governmen’t’s floated MSME funds as well as private start-upcapital from key stakeholders. We would be entrenching MSMEs as a central part of National policy and ensuring that SMEs who are national assets are empowered by this initiative.”
