In its bid to attract private investors to come to the State to invest in manufacturing and service sectors, the State government has put together a package of incentives to woo such investors. To this end, industrial estates have been established in Abak, Eket, Ikot Ekpene, Oron and Uyo where basic infrastructural facilities like pipe-borne water, electricity and telecommunication services are provided.

Easy and direct allocation of plots is assured to all potential investors in the state. The state government is also willing to assist in carrying out feasibility studies for prospective investors. Other areas where government assistance is assured include the establishment of factory sheds for rentals, assisting in securing plant, office and residential accommodation for prospective investors. As already stated, some of these industries can utilise locally available raw material.
