Charles Nicholas, the international coordinator of the Ice Summit, in a statement said the summit would enhance business matchmaking for Nigerian entrepreneurs and SME’s with international counterparts.
With the theme: “Promoting a Private Sector Driven Economy through Partnerships”, the forum is envisaged to create a more healthy economy, attract investment, utilize ideas, and knowledge transfer. “Nigeria as a country and global investment hub has its number of summit conferences and seminars. These summits have taken both local and international dimensions seeking to find solutions to the intractable economic and business challenges faced by the Giant of Africa,” the organisers said.
