The Nasarawa Investment Summit 2022 “Diamond in the Rough, The Making of a New Investment Frontier”

Nasarawa State has shown great promise over the years by overcoming numerous roadblocks as we inch towards our vision of becoming Nigeria’s top investment powerhouse. As a State, we have been very deliberate about stimulating our economy, building our people’s productive capacities, and creating wealth and jobs for them.

This is the basis of the Nasarawa Economic Development Strategy (NEDS) (2019 – 2023), which is a testament to our collective commitment to implement a practicable economic transformation strategy for the State, as promised during our campaign.

It is founded on a vision to sustain accelerated growth of the Nasarawa economy driven by the private sector and translate this to a clear improvement in citizens’ lives and the achievement of other key development outcomes.

We are therefore pleased to host the inaugural Nasarawa Investment Summit. The summit will serve as a platform to present credible and bankable investment opportunities that are market-ready for investor engagement.

It will also foster a closer collaboration and partnership between the private sector and the government in building a stronger business environment.

With participants from diverse backgrounds from across the globe, this is a platform to engage with Government and Business leaders to invest and do business in Nasarawa State.
