At NBCC forum, envoy woos stakeholders to Brexit opportunities
The Nigerian-British Chamber of Commerce (NBCC) has engaged stakeholders and member partners of the commission to a quarterly advocacy group breakfast session, ahead of the United Kingdom’s planned exit from the European Union.
The move was to discuss impact and opportunities for key stakeholders within the Nigerian and British business communities in relations to trade in the coming months.
The meeting, organized by the British Commission, was aimed at enlightening stakeholders on preemptive steps to be taken in positioning their businesses and taking the lead with great advantages the Brexit has to offer.
It also availed member partners and businesses networking opportunities as it was well attended by dignitaries such as the Deputy High Commissioner Laure Beaufils, Country Head, Common Wealth Enterprise Investment Council (CWEIC), Obinna Anyanwu, and Ambassador Chinedu Osakwe, among others.
Beaufils stated that one major opportunities the Brexit presents to stakeholders is that it avails the British government the independence to put in place its own trade policies as a country, alongside other countries, which includes Nigeria and other affiliated business communities.
She said the increased trade relations and engagement will be beneficial for investors and trading markets, as the relationships will not just be limited to commercial affairs, but through British establishments and commitments, issues relating to climate change, environment, improved investments for job creation, trade and investments will be addressed .
