Director General of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Dr. Emomotimi Agama, will be addressing pivotal policies and strategies aimed at bolstering Nigeria’s economy while aligning with global green economy initiatives at the 3rd National Conference organized by Oriental News Nigeria. This event is scheduled to take place on July 25, 2024, at the Radisson Blu GRA Ikeja, Lagos, commencing at 9 a.m.

Oriental News Nigeria, a leading digital media platform, will convene key policymakers, government and non-governmental organizations, and industry experts from Nigeria’s financial sector to deliberate on the theme: “Green Economy, Sustainable Growth and Infrastructure Transformation.”

The conference will explore various pathways for Nigeria to sustain economic development and growth through green finance, marketing and supply chain strategies, policies for a green economy, renewable energy, and the digital economy. Sub-themes will include green finance, renewable energy, and ecosystem development.

Dr. Agama, who has confirmed his participation, highlighted the significant opportunities tied to the green economy, including sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, ecotourism, and coastal development. He emphasized that Nigeria’s commitment to leveraging its natural resources could position the country as a leader in green economy initiatives.

The event will feature two main segments. The opening session will include keynote addresses and remarks from guest speakers and the conference chairman, followed by comments from participants. The second segment will involve a round-table discussion with select professionals delving into the conference’s main theme and sub-themes.

In the context of a global economic slowdown driven by various factors, the conference will address the need for transitioning to a green economy to foster sustainable growth, safeguard natural capital, and ensure environmental and social well-being. Challenges such as the lack of an appropriate policy framework and inadequate capital expenditure will also be discussed.

The conference aims to engage researchers, practitioners, and policymakers in identifying strategic changes and innovations required for green sustainable development. It will provide a platform for academic peers to exchange information, share experiences, and develop solutions to pressing business issues, thereby setting the stage for actionable policies and practices.
