The presence of the international airport and the city's good climate make the city well-positioned to pioneer
the aviation industry which include airplane and helicopter manufacturing and maintenance. Entrepreneurs can also bank on the
presence of many electronics factories to further develop the manufacture of higher value electronic and communication products
such as mobile phones, television sets, and switching equipments. Arrival of more and more tourists and businessmen to the city
makes it imperative to build more hotels and resorts. In turn, these hotels and visitors would need more processed foods,
furniture, jewelry, and clothes. The growth of industries would necessitate more housing and advanced training centers and
investors should not miss such an opportunity.
