Organizers of the African Canadian Business Forum have informed that this year’s program would center more on the Nigerian economy and its surrounding issues. This is by virtue of the fact that Nigeria is the largest economy in Africa.
One of the organizers, Dr. Jonathan Daniel, who made this known, harped on the long term benefits of the forum for businesses.
The conference is billed to hold in October, at the Nigerian Canadian Association Community Hall in Canada. It would focus more on exploring options to strengthen economic ties between African countries and Canadian businesses.
According to the organizers, the conference brings together not just Africans, but a diverse group of exceptional international entrepreneurs. This is so because the forum is an avenue to promote new ideas, policies, and initiatives. Also, it is a medium of liaison between government and independent stakeholders.
“This Conference is aimed at establishing a mutual international relationship among African countries, and to build a better future for both economies”.
Daniel further explained that the forum connects leaders with backgrounds in both the private and public sectors. Also, it explores opportunities to build stronger investments. He stressed that the platform sought to promote investments and trades, as well as cultural and capacity building initiatives of countries.
He assured that participants will find it rewarding both now and in the future. This is due to the fact that the event will also witness the international edition of the ‘Arise O Nigeria’ Annual leadership seminar. Also, the event will commemorate the United Nations day for poverty eradication.
