A summit that will provide stakeholders and industry experts opportunities of deliberating on Agricultural and mining sectors in Nigeria is being put together by the International Strategic Alliance Committee (ISAC).
The body said it has concluded plans to host a Nigerian Mining and Agriculture summit at the Queen Elizabeth Conference Centre in Westminster, London in April.
Speaking to newsmen in Lagos, Gilbert Agbeyegbe, who is in charge of ISAC Operations in Nigeria said “the summit is intended to bring together government officials from Nigeria and top Nigerian businessmen and women.”
Expected at the event, he added, will be those who are interested in farming and mining in Nigeria.
The summit, he said, will enable stakeholders to deliberate on issues and opportunities in the mining and agricultural sectors in Nigeria and make available on the spot opportunity to sign partnership agreements with international investors.
He added that the event will be attended by various international financial institutions with specific interest and mandate to finance projects within such representatives from African Development bank, and investors in both Mining and Agricultural sectors.
Also highlighting details of the conference, Director of ISAC Events, Mr Olawale Adenugba noted that “ISAC is desirous of supporting the current administration in its bid to diversify the economy and develop the mining and agricultural sector.”
Adenugba decried the dwindling revenue of the nation, urging those interested in farming and mining to seize this opportunity to attend the summit as an opportunity is here presented to develop these sectors.
