“Tiwa’s performance is not the only high point of the event, because we already have Aliko Dangote, Femi Otedola and Tony Elumelu as speakers. Trade Nigeria is still working closely with Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment; Office of The Secretary to the Government of the Federation Abuja, Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) and other partners to ensure the event turns out to be a memorable one”
“We’re so far grateful to the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Otunba Niyi Adebayo and other partners of this event for the work they are putting in to ensure we achieve the set goals and also end the year on a very high note, while looking forward to a very busy 2020”, he said.

“We are really sorry for the change in date again; the weather won’t be too good for the event in Korea and we’re also looking at when most of the facilitators and participants will be available. We are now working hard to ensure we achieve every set goal for the event in a better way come January 2020”
