Considering the benefits derived from bilateral relationships with nations, the Nigeria Leadership Initiative (NLI) will be inaugurating its Diplomatic Dialogue Series (DDS) in the country to boost Nigeria’s bilateral relationships with other countries.
This maiden edition of DiplomaticDialogue Series (DDS) that takes place in September 10 in Lagos, will henceforth be a monthly breakfast event aimed at strengthening bilateral relations with countries and increase investment portfolios.
Chief Executive Officer, NLI, Yinka Oyinlola said, it is a platform for interaction with the Ambassadors of foreign representation in Nigeria and a forum for networking for the purpose of business relationships and catalytic investments.
“The DDS creates a sustainable forum for the leaders of corporate Nigeria, public service leaders, NLI Senior Fellows, Fellows and Associates, senior government officials, the academia, policy makers and the media to engage, interact and share ideas with Diplomatic Envoys”.
Ready to grace the occasion is Indian High Commissioner to Nigeria, His Excellency, A.R Ghanashyan, with other invited dignitaries comprising critical stakeholders in the corporate, government, civil society, academic, media and diplomatic communities in Nigeria.
According to Yinka Oyinlola, “whatever brings people closer will inherently bridge divides, foster peace and better understanding and ultimately strengthen human interaction, growth and productivity”
In addition, Oyinlola remonstrated that the NLI’s DDS has the capacity to facilitate new vistas of opportunities for trade and commerce; foster better bilateral cooperation and understanding.
