Investors drawn from the Nigerian private and public sectors are set to meet with their counterparts in the United States to discuss available technological opportunities in the emerging markets.
The investors are scheduled to meet during a trade mission organised by the Nigerian-American Chamber of Commerce, where Nigerian delegates would be taken to the Silicon Valley in the United States of America, for a five-day networking session with investors in that region.
According to the NACC, the trade mission themed, ‘Turning Promises to Action’ will also dwell on ways of improving Nigeria’s financial infrastructure. The chamber said the trade mission was its annual commitment to promoting the development of trade, commerce, investment and industrial relations between the public and private sectors of Nigeria and the United States of America.
The mission is scheduled to hold between the last week of April and the first week of May, the chamber noted in a statement on Wednesday.
The statement read in part, “The five-day period will see delegates hosted by the Silicon Valley Nigeria Economic Development Inc, meetings with Silicon Valley top executives, angel investors and venture capitalist in information technology; Silicon Valley organisations (chambers of commerce; Silicon Valley technology companies; the Mayor of San Jose, among others.
“This is a time when delegates leverage on the chamber’s initiative to meet new international buyers and distributors, expand into new markets, exchange market knowledge, network, gain insight from industry experts and promote their businesses across borders, and further generating new businesses for their companies.”
It added that the mission would attract businesses in Information Technology, banking, agriculture, technology solutions, artificial intelligence, robotic process automation and smart contracts among others.
