The Small and Medium Enterprises Group of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), is set to hold its annual symposium for year 2019.

The symposium scheduled to hold on Wednesday, November 27, 2019 at the LCCI Conference exhibition centre is themed ‘Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement: Realities for the Nigerian SMEs’’.

Director General of LCCI said that following the official signing of the agreement by majority of African countries, it has become necessary to identify new opportunities and challenges that may be associated with the new economic realities in the region.

This according to him is essential to ensure sustainability of SME investments and assess the competitiveness that may arise as a result of the trade agreement. “The thrust of the symposium is to create avenue for opinion sharing on the AfCFTA and the attendant benefits and challenges it may impact on businesses in Nigeria, particularly SMEs.”

Yusuf further stressed that, the Small and Medium Enterprises Group is a very active arm of the Chamber known for its constructive engagement on critical issues affecting investment and investors in various sectors of the economy where its members operate. And that the membership of the group cuts across many sectors of the economy, as well as other services companies.”

The Chairman of the Group, Mr. Abiodun Oladapo made known that seasoned professionals, leaders of businesses, top public sector officials and relevant government agencies will be available to discuss the theme.
