SIFAX Group in partnership with the Nigeria-South Africa Chamber of Commerce is set to bring together key industry stakeholders to discuss the alternative sources of funding critical infrastructure development in the country’s maritime sector.
According to a statement issued by SIFAX Group, the discuss will be the focus of the Chamber’s monthly business networking event scheduled to hold on Thursday, March 25, 2021.
The topic of the virtual event is “Public Private Partnership as Alternative Financing Model in the Maritime Sector” and the guest speaker is Mr. Alex Okoh, Director General, Bureau of Public enterprises (BPE).
Speaking on the event, Bode Ojeniyi, Group Executive Director, SIFAX Group, noted that the partnership with the Chamber of Commerce was designed as a melting pot for policy makers and prospective investors in the sector to discuss and exchange ideas on financing projects such that the industry can contribute better to the country’s economic growth.
“Riding on the enormous success achieved through the concession of port terminals by the Federal Government, SIFAX Group believes there are more opportunities for private sector participation in the country’s maritime sector. SIFAX Group wants to be at the fore front of this discourse and wants to use this event to rally stakeholders for advocacy in this direction,” said Ojeniyi.
Leading players in the country’s maritime sector as well as other business leaders will participate in this webinar and networking platform. The general public is also welcome to participate in the discussion by using the registration link- http://bit.ly/NSACC07.
