Nigerian International Maritime Summit (NIMS) is set to hold from 26th to 29th May 2021 and it is targeted at the expansion of economic options for the industry and increased efficiency of services provided to the national economy.
According to a statement by Ose Omobhude, Programme Officer of NIMS, the event is an initiative of the private organized private sector of the maritime industry facilitated by a unique industry-wide collaboration and supported by government.
‘NIMS set agenda and highlights solutions for maritime business, policy and operations in Nigeria. In addition to featuring Nigeria’s first immersive virtual maritime exhibition and trade show, NIMS will feature discussions on cross-cutting aspects of maritime industry operations, business, law and policy.
“The NIMS agenda is driven by a two-pronged strategy based on knowledge and policy development; and industry-wide service optimisation. While the former is to be led by discussions, policy advocacy and engagement at the annual event and ad-hoc industry engagement series, the latter will be achieved by development of a reliable and efficient industry-driven maritime cluster for Nigeria. NIMS, a non-governmental initiative, is supported by a high-level volunteer Board of Directors and an Advisory Council.”
