The highly anticipated event is slated for Monday, September 18, 2023, at the Honeywell Auditorium and will commence at 2:30 p.m.
This visit marks a significant milestone in the decades-long economic relations between Nigeria and the United States.
It provides an opportune platform for influential business leaders, policymakers, and academics to convene and discuss critical issues under the theme “U.S.-Nigeria Economic Relations: People, Entrepreneurship, and Investment.”
Deputy Secretary Wally Adeyemo is expected to deliver a comprehensive speech addressing various aspects of the U.S.-Nigeria economic relationship, including entrepreneurship and investment avenues.
