The Edo State Government has made it its mission to make the state the industrial hub of the South-South through the development of industrial clusters and free trade zones. Below is a map showing the location of these zones, parks and clusters (proposed and ongoing projects)
All is set for the smooth take-off of the planned Benin Industrial Park close to the Azura-Edo power plant with the receipt of the Preliminary Report by Governor Godwin Obaseki. The power plant would deliver much-needed additional power to Nigeria, and, in turn, the broader West African power grid. The project is expected to provide access to affordable electricity to about 14 million residential consumers at a fraction of the cost of self-generated power.
