Borderless 2014 Conference to increase trade in West Africa

24 February 2014, 14:05

Lagos -The third Annual Conference of the Borderless Alliance, dubbed Borderless 2014 will be held at the Sheraton Hotel in Ikeja from February 26 to 28, 2014.

Under the theme “Enabling Growth,” Borderless 2014 is being co-hosted by the Nigerian Export Import Bank (NEXIM) and the Nigeria Shippers Council, both members of the Borderless Alliance.

The conference will engage participants in an informative program of high profile speakers, facilitate networking and business opportunities for participants and also provide attractive exhibition and marketing opportunities for sponsors, as well as participants.

 Participants include experts, high level businessmen and women, experienced transport and logistics specialists, development partners, national governments, supply chain professionals, multinational companies, bankers, port management officials and investors across a wide range of industries.

"The Borderless 2014 conference in Lagos will be well-positioned to reach the developing markets in the Sub-region, from the commercial heart of West Africa. It will also be the most important advocacy and informational event around,” said Ziad Hamoui, President of the Borderless Alliance.

The MD/CEO of NEXIM Bank, Roberts Orya, maintains that “supporting strategic initiatives, such as the Borderless Alliance, which seek to minimize or totally remove non-tariff barriers to trade across the ECOWAS sub-region and Africa, is pivotal to NEXIM Bank’s mandate to promote and deepen the export of non-oil products and services.”

 He reiterated the commitment of the Bank to facilitating the Regional Sealink Project which is expected to provide maritime connectivity for enhanced movement of persons, goods and services across Africa.

The Borderless Alliance, a regional advocacy organization established in 2011, works to promote and facilitate cross-border trade and reduce procedural inefficiencies.

Borderless Alliance has a membership of more than 50 private sector companies working hand in hand with public institutions, civil societies and the media in West Africa to increase trade.
