Chairman and chief executive officer of African Legacy International, Engr. Innocent Ogu has said that the Emerging Business Destination Summit scheduled to take place on July 3 and 4 in Abuja was designed to improve the general economy of the African continent.
Ogu, who gave the hints yesterday at a press conference in Abuja, noted that the summit would assist African firms to grow to the expected standard globally.
He said that the organisers had made it in such a way that African firms would be allowed to participate freely at the summit to learn, so as to improve on their performance.
According to him, “Emerging Business Destination was categorically designed to assist African firms, as this would be an opportunity to quantum leap to their expected standard globally.”
Ogu further explained that at the end of the summit, the participating firms would create employment as they would surely expand their businesses and products.
“Africa would be rated high in their GDP, private sector enterprises would grow, crime rate will reduce, there will be less dependent on import goods and the rate of unemployment will drastically reduce to the barest minimum,” he said.
Ogu noted that some African firms that had contributed to the quest for development would be honoured for outstanding performance at the summit.
