The Chairman, Invest in Africa World Summit and Expo Angelo Elosia said that Nigeria will host the World Summit for Single Market in Africa on March 23, 2021.
He disclosed this while speaking with newsmen on the sidelines of the Invest in Africa World Summit and Expo 2020 with Digital Economy in Africa on Thursday.
He said the Invest in Africa summit was a transitional programme which was expected to usher in the World Summit for single market in Africa in 2021, adding that the programme was tagged: Economic and Technical Innovations for Africa During and After COVID-19.
Elosia said that the idea of this programme is to bring the various African countries under one umbrella and to harness the regional market for Africas structural transformation.
He noted that the goal of the summit, which started in 2003 was to bring together countries leaders, stakeholders, international investors and industry decision makers to foster economic and bilateral relationships.
The summit brings into focus the African aspiration both in rural and urban areas with the opportunity of coming together to foster these aspirations in economic and grassroots development.
In attendance at the summit were senior government officials, stakeholders, international investors as well as industry decision makers
