The Nigerian High Commission in Canada, in collaboration with Prime Essentials Development & Investment Ltd (PEDI), will host the first Nigeria-Canada Investment Summit from November 5th to 6th, 2018 at the Musa Yar’Adua Centre in Abuja with the theme: Fostering Strong Business Partnerships into The Future.
The initiative stems from the strong desire of His Excellency, Ambassador Adeyinka Asekun, the Nigerian High Commissioner to Canada, to unlock investment opportunities in Nigeria to Canadian companies and to provide a viable platform for networking between Nigerian & Canadian businesses.
On the basis of this desire, as well as the preponderance of requests received by PEDI on this subject matter, we believe the time has come to create an avenue that brings together business communities of Nigeria and Canada. The summit will explore opportunities that will encourage mutually beneficial investment and trading relationship between the two countries. It is the pursuit of this that brings about the inaugural edition of the Nigeria-Canada Investment Summit.
