The Nigerian-British Chamber of Commerce (NBCC) is calling for new policies to encourage local and foreign investment in Nigeria.
At a recent media briefing, NBCC Chairman of Trade and Investment, Mr. Segun Akintemi, said the Minister of Industry, Trade, and Investment, Dr. Doris Uzoka-Anite, will launch the chamber’s Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Ideathon initiative. This will take place during the Inaugural Dinner of the 18th NBCC President, Mr. Ray Atelly, in Lagos on November 24.
The Ideathon aims to help MSMEs grow into successful businesses. According to Akintemi, “Nigeria needs both local and foreign investments now, and policies must exist to drive this.”
At the dinner, Mr. Tajudeen Ahmed, NBCC Chairman of Programmes, said experts would provide valuable insights for MSMEs and large multinationals.
Dr. Ebere Njoku, Director-General of NBCC, stated the chamber will continue unveiling programmes and advocacies as the foremost channel of trade between Nigeria and Britain.
According to Njoku, the inaugural dinner will convene business leaders, investors, policymakers, and stakeholders to build and expand business opportunities for NBCC members.
