Officially co-hosted with the Ministry of Finance, Budget and Planning, of Nigeria and the Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission, Nigeria Finance is the only digital conference of its kind tackling the critical challenges affecting Nigeria’s finances. The current global lockdown and depleted oil price has left Nigeria in a vulnerable position. With high levels of unemployment, oil dependency and dilapidated public infrastructure, Nigeria is in need for financial change.

International donors and development finance institutions are ready to support the country in its current crisis. Nigeria Finance will tackle all the key challenges ahead that lie in Nigeria and the subsequent opportunities that arise in the country. Nigeria Finance will discuss a range of subjects from the future investment landscape in Nigeria to financial and digital technologies that will drive the local economy. Not only will large financing projects be under the spotlight, but the fastest growing industries from mobile banking to e-commerce will be discussed through our unique online conference. Join us for an unrivalled online 5-day VIP conference programme and learn about the outstanding opportunities within Nigeria’s financial services.
