FOW World in partnership with the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade & Investment will give the 2017 Independence Day celebration in Asia a different colour with a tread and investment expo tagged Nigeria-Korea-Japan-China Business, Investment & Trade Expo.
The event which is geared at improving the trade relationship between Nigeria, Korea, Japan and China will also ensure that more made in Nigerian products find their way outside the shores of the country.
According to the President of FOW World, Hon. Nwabueze Buchi George, the event will not only export our products and services, but will also export our culture, way of life and the true identity of a Nigerian.
“So many people are interested in Nigeria not just because they want to sell something here, but because they also want to buy from us. There is so much we can sell to the world out there and the best thing we can do is to create that channel which our people can use to do business with the outside world”, he said.
According to a release on the official website of the programme, www.bitexpo.org, the event ‘Business, Investment and Trade Exchange’ (BITE-EXPO) is aimed at promoting joint trade and business, enhancing stronger international bilateral relationship and investment in the global world.
It is a campaign for the promotion of goods and services made across nations of the world; and will be lasting for three days in each country featuring, local and international investment advisors, visitors, investors and traders of local goods and services with an estimate of more than 5,000 participants expected.
“We want to sell made in Nigeria goods in the spirit of 2017 independence and we will be spicing it up with our culture. Sometimes, people don’t understand what it means to be a Nigeria and we will show them how rich we are in culture and creativity”, Hon. Buchi George said while revealing that the event will kick off in Seoul, South Korea from 1st – 3rd October, 2017, while the next stop will be in Guangzhou, China from 5th – 8th October, 2017 and then Tokyo, Japan from 11th – 13th October, 2017.
He further stated that his organization is in great talk with office of the Honourable Minister of Industry, Trade & Investment, Dr. Okechukwu E. Enelamah and all hands are on deck to make sure the event is a success.
