The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), the premier Chamber of Commerce and one of the leading voices in the organised private sector (OPS) in Nigeria has concluded plans to host its annual Security Meets Business Dialogue. As part of its public-sector engagement programs, the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry initiated the “Security meets Business” dialogue session to create a platform for stakeholders in the economy to deliberate on the state of security in the country and its effect on the private sector.
The dialogue, which is billed to hold on Tuesday 6th February, 2018 by 10:00am at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, is expected to bring together key Security Agencies and major players in the various sectors of the economy, especially the organised private sector. The dialogue session would also explore collaboration possibilities between the Private Sector and the Security Agencies. The Forum will bring together Security Chiefs, leaders of the private sector, as well as members of the diplomatic corps to deliberate on issues of security and its effects on business.
According to Muda Yusuf, Director General of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) “The security of lives and properties is crucial to a thriving business environment. The LCCI believes that through these engagements, the government and private sector can identify and address issues bothering on the security of lives and properties.’’
He added that, “the way out of the present security and prevailing social crises for Nigeria is collaborative engagements such as this, because there can’t be real economic growth without enduring peace, stability and security of lives and property.”
