In line with the quest to make Nigeria a favoured destination for foreign direct investments, organizers of the Made-In-Nigeria (MaIN) Festival, are putting together activities to promote the ease of doing business in Nigeria on the front burner of discourse.

These and many other subjects would form the basis of a special: “Ease of Doing Business Session” that will take place at the Made In Nigeria (MaIN) Summit – a component of MaIN Festival taking place from September 23rd–October 1st, 2016 at Eko Atlantic City, Victoria Island, Lagos.  Over 600 delegates are billed to attend the summit that would run from September 26-29.

The session, which seeks to promote the ease of doing business in Nigeria, would feature updates from various agencies and local, state and federal government functionaries, while providing a platform for the private sector to share their experiences. A special investment desk and one-stop-shop will also be provided for intending investors to obtain information, documentation and advice on establishing or expanding their businesses in Nigeria.

Underscoring the need to promote and sustain initiatives that would ensure the ease of doing business in Nigeria, MaIN Group – organizers of MaIN Festival – in a statement, revealed:  “Economic development, growth and prosperity can only occur where there is an environment that supports both foreign and domestic investment.”

These investments, it added: “are expected to occur in a hyper-competitive global economic environment where countries and their citizens compete for limited resources available to investors.

Naturally, investors will most likely gravitate towards those economies that offer them the best value for money and economies that are backed by well researched legislation, policies as well as strong and transparent institutions.
