“The remarkable growth of the Nigerian telecoms industry has been largely attributable to clear policy objectives from government and a fair regulatory environment that supports competition and level playing field. We reaffirm our commitment to support the Minister of Communication Technology and the Executive Vice Chairman of Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) in their efforts to put the ICT industry in Nigeria on the world map,” he said.

The ITU Telecom World is an annual forum that brings together industry’s leading names to explore three major scenarios of disruption, cross-sector partnerships and the intelligent future. Sessions take a variety of formats from panel sessions, keynotes and high-level debates to global media-moderated Big Conversations.

The platform provided an opportunity for Nigerian delegates to join their counterparts from around the world to debate the future of the ICT industry and attract potential investors.
