With the theme “Achieving Peace and Prosperity Through Multilateralism,” this 13th edition of the congress aims to bring together influential economic actors, business leaders, and policymakers from around the world. They will exchange experiences and address various topics, including international trade and the future of global economies, all with the goal of shaping the next economic era in service of peace and prosperity.

During the World Chambers Congress, Dele Oye, an accomplished lawyer with over 33 years of experience in litigation and business transactions, will shed light on Nigeria’s non-oil export sector. This sector holds immense potential for economic growth and diversification. Oye, who is passionate about promoting trade and investment opportunities in Nigeria and Africa, will also provide insights into other sectors that showcase Nigeria’s tremendous potential, such as agriculture, manufacturing, the booming creative sector, and the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA). The AfCFTA has the potential to foster trade, stimulate economic growth, and deepen cooperation within Africa.
