The Nigeria Export-Import Bank (NEXIM) and the Nigerian Shippers Council are holding a joint conference themed Borderless 2014: Enabling Growth. This is the 3rd edition of the Annual Conference of the Borderless Alliance, which begins on February 26th through to 28th at the Sheraton Hotel in Ikeja Lagos.
The conference will engage participants in an informative program of high profile speakers, facilitate networking and business opportunities for participants and also provide attractive exhibitions and marketing opportunities for sponsors and well as participants. Participants include experts, high level businessmen and women, experienced transport and logistics specialists, development partners, national governments, supply chain professionals, multinational companies, bankers, port management officials and investors across a wide range of industries.
The Borderless Alliance, a regional advocacy organization established in 2011, works to promote and facilitate cross-border trade and reduce procedural inefficiencies. Borderless Alliance has a membership of more than 50 private sector companies working hand in hand with public institutions, civil societies and the media in West Africa to improve trade.
Ziad Hamoui, President of the Borderless Alliance believes that the Borderless 2014 Conference in Lagos is well-positioned to reach the developing markets in the commercial heart of West Africa.
Roberts Orya, Managing Director and CEO of NEXIM Bank, notes that “supporting strategic initiatives, such as the Borderless Alliance, which seek to minimize or totally remove non-tariff barriers to trade across the ECOWAS sub-region and Africa, is pivotal to NEXIM Bank’s mandate to promote and deepen the export of non-oil products and services.” He reiterated the commitment of the bank to facilitating the Regional Sealink Project which is expected to provide maritime connectivity for enhanced movement of persons, goods and services across Africa.
