Event Description


As Nigeria prepares for a future in the upper echelons of global markets, it faces great challenges in turning its economic opportunity into sustainable, equitable development. 


How can business tap into the opportunities that Nigeria presents, while also maximising its contribution to long-term economic growth and broad-based socio-economic impact?


On Wednesday, 6 May, Business Action for Africa and the Initiative for Global Development convened a high panel and reception to launch a major new report, “New Africa: Nigeria – From Growth to Opportunity” (click here).   The event coincided with the IGD Frontier 100 Forum and the World Economic Forum on Africa 2013.


The event will explored these themes through a short interview-style discussion with:


  • Remi Oni, Head, Client Coverage Nigeria and an Executive Director on the Board of Standard Chartered Bank Nigeria
  • Hloni Matsela, Corporate Affairs Director, SABMiller Africa
  • Austin Okere, Co-Founder and Group CEO, Computer Warehouse Group
  • Lisa Pinsley, Director, Africa Investments
  • Richard Ough, Country Economist, DFID Nigeria. 


Moderated by Zahid Torres-Rahman, Founding Director, Business Action for Africa.
