LCCI Unveils 2017 Lagos International Trade Fair Prospectus

The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has unveiled its agenda for the 2017 Lagos International Trade Fair (LITF), with focus on charting the path of recovery in terms of industrialization and sustainable growth.

LCCI announced that this year’s fair, scheduled to hold from November 3-12, 2017 at the Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS) in Lagos, is aimed at supporting Nigeria’s quest to achieve a virile industrialised economy by providing a platform for the nation’s industrial, manufacturing, agriculture, solid minerals and service sectors. 

LCCI President, Dr Mrs Nike Akande, said the theme of the fair “Promoting industrialization for economic recovery and sustainable growth” is apt and timely in the face of the current economic realities which underscores the need for diversification and inter-sectoral synergy. 

Akande, during the unveiling and public presentation of the 2017 LITF prospectus, in Lagos, called on all industry players to support the efforts of the government in revamping and stabilising the economy through the injection of capital into the economy to drive investments in agriculture, manufacturing, trade, services and technology.
