A leading pan-African news channel, Television Continental (TVC) has been selected as the official media partner of the Commonwealth Africa Summit2016.

Themed “Shared Prosperity, Mutual Security,” the event, scheduled to take place in London, United Kingdom, beginning from this week is designed to provide a space for high-level dialogue between Business and Government leaders in Commonwealth countries in Africa and their counterparts from other parts of the globe.

Confirming the news, Chief Executive Officer, Continental Broadcasting Service, owners of TVC, Nigel Parsons, said: “This is the first time that a Nigerian media organisation would be given the official media title rights to partner on the event. We see this as another opportunity to reinforce that the news channel is the only Nigerian broadcast media outfit that has the capacity to cover and broadcast 24 hours a day across Africa.”

As the official media partner in Nigeria, the news channel will also be responsible for covering, broadcasting and promoting the activities of the summit to its audience.

According to the summit secretariat, our exclusive partnership with TVC for the coverage of the commonwealth Africa summit is because of the outfit’s credibility, coverage, reach and reputation across Africa, and we believe they have the reach to get the Summit’s activities to audience across commonwealth countries in Africa and beyond through their online platforms.

Commonwealth Africa Summit provides a platform for Commonwealth nations from Africa to showcase investment opportunities to a wider business community while learning best practices on securing their homeland and borders.

More than 18 heads of state, investors, security sector professionals, entrepreneurs and numerous leaders from business and society, have been invited to convene at the summit

Issues such as power generation, economic development, security, sustainable development, counter-terrorism, infrastructural development, and Africa development agenda are at the forefront of the discussions at the summit.
