The Management and staff of Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC) under the leadership of the Executive Secretary/CEO, Ms Yewande Sadiku on the 26-27th January 2018, held a management retreat at the Central Bank International Training Institute Abuja.
The retreat was held with a view of reviewing strategies to promote Nigeria as an investment destination of choice in Africa for year 2018 in line with the Commission’s role in the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan (ERGP) of government.
As Nigeria has globally improved in the ease of doing business ranking, the Commission at the retreat came up with 5 strategic pillars that will drive these processes of encouraging, coordinating, and promoting investment in Nigeria. This underscores the compelling strategic importance of states for local and international investments in Nigeria and the need for all zonal offices to key into the strategy.
The retreat which was mainly a team building event had the following take-away:
• Appreciation of the importance of the Commission’s mandate, and the expectation of government and the public from NIPC towards a unified implementation by all staff members of the said mandate.
• Increased awareness of staff and the urgent need for greater effectiveness in the discharge of duties at all times, and the molding of an efficient and productive team with its attendant benefits.
