The Nigeria Investment Conference 2018 will hold from November 8 to 9, at Eko Hotel Convention Centre, V.I, Lagos.
The Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Society who are the host of this year’s conference said in a statement that given the projection that Nigeria’s population will rise to above 300 million by 2050, availability of capital will spur growth and play a huge role in the country’s future.
CFA also said the most vibrant sectors of the Nigerian economy are in the private sector. He therefore assured that important questions that will be answered at the forum include: Why would anyone want to invest in Nigeria? How easy is it to do business in Nigeria? Are current policies favourable to increasing capital flow? With so much investment opportunities available in the country, why aren’t we seeing investors competing fiercely to exploit available opportunities?
The theme for this year’s conference is: “Let’s Measure Up” and has an impressive line-up of International and local speakers such as Nigeria’s Minister of Trade and Investment, Okechukwu Enelama; Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Aishah Ahmad; Former President and CEO of The African Finance Corporation, Andrew Alli; President and CEO CFA Institute, Paul Smith; Chairman, First Bank of Nigeria, Ibukun Awosika and others.
