The Made In Nigeria Project, organisers of the Made In Nigeria Conference & Exhibition, have officially announced the fourth edition of the annual event slated to hold in Lagos at the Balmoral Convention Centre on Friday 30th November, 2018 with the theme: An SME-Driven Economy: Opportunities, Challenges & Potential for Growth.
The key thrust of the one-day Conference & Exhibition is aimed at re-defining narratives about Nigeria’s current economic challenges and the debate on socio-economic growth, SME advancement, national aspiration towards self sufficiency, diversification, job creation & employment.
The Conference objectives will also focus on a national framework that will project ‘Made In Nigeria’ as the new economic frontier and provide a national development strategy for our short, medium and long term plan for self-sufficiency, economic diversification and an export-driven economy with the focus on encouraging local production & consumption. We seek to, through this initiative, create a model for the growth and advancement of the non-oil and informal sector which in turn puts Nigeria on the path towards economic development.
Executive Director of The Made In Nigeria Project, Adedeji Alebiosu said:
“The Made In Nigeria Conference & Exhibition will pragmatically address Government’s role in the development and support of Entrepreneurs, access to finance, taxation, ease of doing business and human capital development for small and medium scale enterprises. We will also partner with public regulators and the organised private sector to ensure that MSMEs in the country are bankable and viable enough to access Federal Government-floated MSME funds, as well as private start-up capital from key stakeholders. We would be entrenching MSMEs as a central part of national policy, and ensuring that SMEs who are national assets are empowered by this initiative.” ―Adedeji Alebiosu
