1000 Chinese companies to attend Lagos International Trade Fair
About 1000 Chinese companies are expected to participate in four exhibitions at the forthcoming Lagos International Trade Fair in November.

Managing Director of MD Perspective Limited, Chief Morenike Dele-Alimi, stated this in Lagos yesterday.

She revealed that Chinese government has approved not less than 200 companies to participate in each of the four exhibition sectors apart from other companies not on government list that will equally be participating.

Alimi said the exhibitions are being organised by United Asia International Exhibition Group, an international and professional fair and pavilion organiser, authorised by the Ministry of Public Security of Peoples Republic of China and subsidised by the Chinese government.

MD Perspectives Nigeria Limited, an indigenous fair and exhibition organising company, is UAEC Special Partner in Nigeria for the purpose of the organisation of the exhibitions.

According to Alimi, Nigerian businesses are currently being sensitised on the opportunities inherent in the trades with China.

Chief Dele-Alimi noted that owing to the vast population and corresponding size of Nigeria’s economy, the country remains an attractive investment destination for global businesses.

She explained that the exhibitions will provide economic and commercial bridges between local and international investors and provide platforms to broaden the horizon and scope of investment opportunities for Nigerians.

“We are glad to note that Nigerian counterparts are being sensitised to participate in the B2B (business to business) events, and are currently being matched with corresponding businesses to ensure that we have short but fruitful business meetings during the events”

“With the continued recognition of the role of the private sector in the economic development in Nigeria and the move by the Nigerian government to transform the nation’s economy, the exhibitions seek to use the medium of trade to support government’s concerted efforts and provide an avenue for both Nigerians and foreigners to have windows of opportunities, not only to interact, but also to strike mutually beneficial business relationships.”

“We are hopeful that not less than 500 Nigerian business people per sector will participate in the various B2B meetings that would be held during the 4-day period. This means at least 2000 Nigerian businesses are being invited for the exhibitions,” she said.
