Nigeria International Trade and Investment Conference 2017

The fall in the price of crude oil has significantly impacted the gross domestic product (GDP) and revenue streams of Nigeria. The key question for our economic situation is –

How can Nigeria develop a sustained strategy to facilitate the practical diversification of the economy by attracting intra-Africa and foreign investment alongside, non-oil export to strengthen, her economy?

Africa International Trade and Development Trust (AITDT) believe that a holistic approach that brings all stakeholders to a common platform is a necessary catalyst to diversify the economy. Hence, AITDT is organizing the Nigeria International Trade & Investment Conference (NITIC), June 13th – 15th, 2017. The theme is “Multiple Frontiers – moving away from oil”.
