Meeting with Nigerian Visitors

Jimmy Shola Idiagbon, Founder and Chairman of SME9ja and Blackson Olaseni Bayewumi, Chairman and Convenor of Nigeria Conversation, visited the Chamber on 18 March together with Frank Ebere Azuike, Consul, Consulate General of Nigeria, where they were welcomed by Asia & Africa Committee Chairman Behzad Mirzaei and General Committee Member PC Yu. The visitors expressed interest in establishing connections with Hong Kong businesses, and recommended that the Hong Kong Government set up an office in West Africa to foster commercial exchange between the two regions. Yu pointed out that Hong Kong businesses were not familiar with the African market, but agreed that more needed to be done to promote business exchange with this rapidly emerging region. Mirzaei informed the delegation that the Chamber was organizing a mission to West Africa to explore opportunities there.
