This invitation came during a visit by Otunba Biodun Ajiboye to the Chinese Embassy in Abuja.

He expressed gratitude to the Chinese government for their continuous support in developing Nigeria’s culture and tourism sector and discussed potential areas for further collaboration, particularly in cultural technology.

The seminar will be co-hosted by the China Alumni Association of Nigeria and the University of Abuja at the Chinese Cultural Centre in Wuse Zone 5, Abuja.

“It is my honor to invite the Executive/CEO to be the keynote speaker at the seminar. Your deep knowledge of culture and your passion for cultural promotion in Nigeria have earned you this invitation to speak for 10 minutes about culture and tourism between China and Nigeria,” said Xuda.
