According to organizers, nine months on from President Muhammadu Buhari taking office, the Nigeria Summit 2016 takes place at the opportune time- bringing key government ministries, industry and business leaders as well as representatives of Nigerian civil society.

These will be brought together with international investors, economists and academics to discuss and debate what the future holds for Nigeria and how the country can take its place among the world’s top emerging markets.

Now in its 11th year, the Nigeria Summit is part of a successful high-growth markets series.

“It has become one of the leading events in Africa where business, government and ideas people meet to discuss the most pertinent issues,” organisers stated.
