The Nigerian publishers Association should make necessary representation that will influence government action towards granting such facilities as tax relives book studies/ subsides, regular supply of materials, and easy terms of credit. Government should also establish financial institutions to assist publishers as has been one to industrialist and farmers. Alternatively, government should encourage mergers by legislations so that those small an unviable one man publishing companies could attract substantial capital to finance their publishing programmes. – Adequate manpower/ personnel training: Preference should be given to employment of only academically qualified and experienced staff. The incorporation of printing/ publishing in the curriculum of our tertiary institution is recommended.
