The Federal Government of Nigeria has received financing from the World Bank to implement the Growth and Employment (GEM) Project, aimed at supporting Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) operating in manufacturing and service sectors, specifically: ICT, Entertainment, Hospitality and Tourism, Light Manufacturing and Construction. The project support addresses cross cutting sector issues, assistance to specific clusters, and direct support to firms in the form of training, technical assistance and grant schemes.
As an outcome of consultation with stakeholders in the entertainment industry, the PIU is organizing a series of training workshops in Lagos, Kano and Asaba at a date to be communicated soon on video and sound editing.
