The duo said the firm will hold the programme in collaboration with the Federation of India Chamber of Commerce (FICCI) on September 10 to 11 with the theme: “Challenging the Levers of Emerging Economies: Rigs to Chips”
According to them, the conference is expected to serve as a platform to boost investment opportunities in ICT in Nigeria and raise the level of best practices operators, policy makers and the business communities.
