The Federal Government of Nigeria collaborates with renowned global think tank, Horasis, and leading public relations and advertising firm, Zenera Consulting to host the maiden Horasis-in-Nigeria Global Business Meeting.
The summit will bring together an array of international top investors, heads of governments, bankers and hedge funds managers numbering over 500 to identify auspicious investment opportunities.
The event which is scheduled to hold later in the year seeks to address universally relevant business issues and develop interdisciplinary solutions across sectors.
Vice President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, while receiving a delegation from Horasis in Abuja, ratified and pledged the support of the Federal Government for the conference while at the same time alluding to the annual Horasis Business Meetings securing a permanent home in Nigeria.
VP Osinbajo also received a partnership plaque from the Horasis International representatives as a symbolic seal of the Federal Government’s endorsement of the conference in Nigeria.
Reacting to the alliance between the revered bodies, Meka Olowola, Managing Partner of Zenera Consulting observed: ‘’Over the years, corporate Nigeria has deepened its robustness in terms of governance, ethics, technical competence and other global best practices, therefore priming themselves in position to forge strong international partnerships on a scale that will inevitably generate tremendous value for the subregion.
“This inaugural meeting is geared towards congregating the world’s most sophisticated businessmen to reinvigorate the Nigerian economy for the short and long term’’
Horasis-in-Nigeria Chairman, and former Minster of National Planning, Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr Shamsudeen Usman (OFR, CON), and Co-founder/Regional Coordinator, Horasis-in-Nigeria, Dr. Noel Akpata also expressed satisfaction with the Federal Government’s endorsement and long-term support.
Commenting on the potential of the Horasis-in-Nigeria conference to enhance the economic outlook of the country, Dr. Akpata remarked: “We fervently believe that against all odds, Nigeria’s myriad of problems should be visualised as opportunities needing a different level of innovation and creative problem-solving driven by nation building mindsets to resolve.’’
Horasis Global Meeting is competitively compared by global media giant, Bloomberg, to the World Economic Forum in Davos which annually gathers over 500 Chairmen/CEOs of tier-1 companies of the world alongside Heads of Governments (Presidents, Prime Ministers) to discuss and find practicable solutions to problems shaping our world.
As a nation, this global meeting will position Nigeria as a veritable investment hub to the world, improve foreign relations, bilateral agreement and expose homemade Nigerian brands to a wider audience.
