Yesterday, 23rd June, 2015, the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) drew the attention of managers of the Nigerian economy and the general masses to the importance of harnessing the nation’s human resources with modern technology, to add value to non-oil export that will result in improved earnings for the country. This was during the public presentation of the prospectus of the 2015 Lagos International Trade Fair scheduled to hold from Friday November 6 to Sunday November 15, 2015, tagged: “Enhancing value addition in the non-oil economy”.
The President, LCCI, Alhaji Remi Bello, said that the nation is currently witnessing daunting economic challenges as a result of the fall in the global price of crude oil, hence the need to focus on a non-oil economy.
Bello stressed the need for not only identifying the alternatives to crude oil, but also giving exposure to the opportunities that abound in value addition to enhance earning and profitability.
He said the public presentation of the prospectus is also coming on the heels of the Chamber’s introduction of two trade venues to facilitate corporate exhibitions, business to business meetings, and boost Nigeria’s rapidly growing creative industry.
