Nigeria to make strong showing at Gitex, NITDA assures investors of better deals
The Head of Corporate Affairs at the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) Hadiza Umar has assured local and foreign investors in the nation’s IT ecosystem of adequate protection and healthy regulatory tools to foster the growth of their investments. She spoke to the media in Lagos on NITDA’s plan for Gitex 2016. She heads the sub-committee on Pavilion Management of the Nigeria@Gitex LOC.
She said; “Nigerian Government is committed to supporting foreign and local entrepreneurship; and there are adequate legal defenses to secure the interests of investors. We are already talking to sister agencies and hopefully we should be able to have clear picture of how many agencies will be housed within the pavilion in another month or so. The event holds in October.
“All registered ICT companies are eligible. Local companies hoping to explore foreign markets for their solutions or products; or even local companies seeking to explore foreign partnerships/collaborations can leverage effectively on the Nigerian Pavilion at Gitex 2016 to expand their business portfolio.”
Gitex is a global IT festival which brings tech companies, innovators, regulatory agencies, equipment manufacturers, vendors, media, and sundry stakeholders under one roof.
