That entrepreneurship and diversification of the economy are key means of reviving the nation’s ailing economy has been severally proclaimed, to the extent of almost sounding like a mantra. However, the Impact South-West Economic Development (ISEDE 2016) is planning to thrust the South West region of the country into the forefront of entrepreneurial development.
Titled ISEDE 2016 – F.A.C.T For Economic Development’, the event is expected to focus on four strategic industries “with high potential for economic development and empowerment stimulation across West Region and indeed Nigeria.”
Chairman and President of Impact Business Radio, Mr. Owolabi Oladejo, who spoke on sundry issues explained that ISEDE 2016 would focus on Fashion, Agriculture, Construction and Technology (FACT), using four strategies; “Show Them, Tell Them, Link Them and Reward Them”.
The four industries the event is expected to focus on are Fashion, Agriculture, Construction and Technology (FACT), as avenues through which unemployment can be successfully tackled in the region.
“ Impact South-West Economic Development (ISEDE 2016) which will span over eight days will afford participants the opportunity for networking with prospective partners and vast marketing opportunities and hopefully re-establish South West’s role as trendsetters in wealth creation and economic development by promoting existing businesses in the region, encouraging new entrants and assisting in linking other businesses” Oladejo further explained.
“Exhibitors and Sponsors of ISEDE 2016 have the opportunity to connect with potential clients, build brand recognition with their target market, showcase their company, introduce new products/services and increase their exposure. The audience includes; decision-makers like Federal, State and Local Governments, Corporate bodies, Competitors, buyers and members of the public”Guardian fi=urther quotes him as saying.
The expected results of these strategies, networking and exhibitions are hoped to turn the South West back into a force to be reckoned with in the country in terms of wealth creation and entrepreneurial development. The event is slated to hold November 18 to 25, 2016.
