Top analysts expected at the event include Charles Robertson, Global Chief Economist, Renaissance Capital, who will be giving a presentation that will address the prospect of Nigeria’s diversification from oil dependency.
The opening ceremony will include a keynote address by Yewande Sadiku, Executive Secretary / CEO of the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC). Charles Robertson, Global Chief Economist, Renaissance Capital, will give a talk on Nigeria’s structural reform and diversification from oil dependency as key to industrialisation.
Charles Robertson, Global Chief Economist, Renaissance Capital, said: “We do believe that further improvement in the business climate and a strong welcome to foreign investors are necessary for Nigeria to lift the investment rate. With some rapid reforms, a better value currency, accelerating growth – Nigeria could become an overweight again.”
