NIPC, partners unveil template for profiling investment projects ahead investors’ summit
The Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC) in collaboration with the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO), Greenwich Trust Limited, NASD OTC Securities Exchange and Asoko Insight Limited, has developed a template for profiling investment opportunities in Nigeria.
According to an NIPC publication signed on behalf of the NIPC Executive Secretary/CEO by Adeshina Emmanuel, Director of Investment Promotion of NIPC, this emanates from the Commission’s mandate to promote and coordinate investments in Nigeria, which is also charged by its ‘Act’ to collect, collate, analyse and disseminate information about investment opportunities and sources of investment capital.
“This template will enable NIPC modernise and standardise the database of Nigerian investment opportunities that it presents to potential investors at NIPC’s domestic and international promotional and matchmaking events and on any of its advertisements or printed materials.”
The NIPC publication stated: “The Commission may also promote the opportunities through any of its domestic, regional or international partners.”
With this development, the “Direct Investors’ Summit”, scheduled to hold in Abuja from May 21 to May 23, 2018 presents the first platform to showcase a selection of the profiles with the strongest business and investment case to foreign and domestic investors for the purpose of matchmaking.
In order to provide opportunities for other interested parties with investment prospects to participate, NIPC has created an online Investment Opportunity Profile platform that enables promoters submit their projects.
While there is no deadline for the submission of profiles by interested parties, the Publication stressed that only forms submitted by May 11, 2018 may be considered for presentation at the summit.“Interested parties should note that by completing and submitting a profile, they grant NIPC permission to share their investment opportunity, in its full or abridged format, at any of its investment and matchmaking endeavours,” NIPC concluded in the publication.
