No doubt, the current lull in the Nigerian economy as a result of recession is biting harder than envisaged necessitating business activities decline and/ or random closure of some businesses. We however believe that - we as a nation - have the ability and the capacity to weather the storm and put ourselves in the right track. That is why WHERE To Print Intelligence Unit sought candid opinion of top, value-driven and reputable print & allied manufacturers and their representatives on the possible and practical solutions that stakeholders in the printing and allied industry could adopt to ensure the impact of Nigeria’s recession is reduced if not totally eliminated on print businesses. Read their time-tested and valuable responses in a SPECIAL FEATURE titled: AS RECESSION BITES: TOP, VALUE-DRIVEN AND REPUTABLE PRINT & ALLIED MANUFACTUERERS PROFFER SOLUTIONS from page 17.
WHERE TO PACKAGE: As I noted in WHERE To Print first issue for this year, 2017 is definitely going to be a year of tremendous opportunities even in the face of ‘economic stress’ – and as we always walk our talk, we are starting in this 48th issue - a serial column on unarguably the most viable sector in our industry – packaging. Our aim is to make the column a full blown and independent magazine dedicated to all things packaging and brand differentiation. In this issue of WHERE TO PACKAGE, we expose the hitherto neglected area of packaging i.e. design and teach practitioners on HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY REDESIGN YOUR PRODUCT PACKAGING. Check this out from pages 36 as we promise to feature in subsequent issue latest news and information from around the world on packaging and brand differentiation. We sincerely appreciate our ally and partners within the packaging dynasty such as the Institute of Packaging Nigeria (IOPN) and PROPAK West Africa organisers – Afrocet Montgomery.
Finally, I will like to also enjoin you to remain focused, plan ahead and commit all your endeavours to your Maker as the Author and Finisher of your faith.
We will all share great, pleasant and surprising testimonies even before the year ends!
Please continue to do good!
