Lagos: August 31, 2015: 

The Junior Chamber International Nigeria (JCIN) has concluded plans to host a business forum - Let's go to Asia on Sunday September 27, at the Intercontinental Hotel Lagos. Let's go to Asia is a prelude to the 100th anniversary of the JCI holding in Kanazawa Japan. The forum is a platform of opportunities to promote business relationships between young Nigerian business leaders and Asian companies.

Speaking on the initiative, the National President Mr Seun Osikalu stated that 'our members invest a lot of resources on their various travels around the world for JCI programmes and conferences. These events provide enormous opportunities for our members to establish lifelong relationships and we want our members and interested members of the public to take deliberate advantage of such opportunities. We have partnered with Asian trade and commercial missions in Nigeria to come sell their countries and they are excited at the prospects that the forum offers'

Speaking further, the National Director of Business Affairs Mr Jide Benson added 'we reckon that since a large delegation of our members will be attending the week-long world congress in Kanazawa Japan; it will be an opportunity for direct interaction with business organizations and people in the Asiatic regions - Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, Singapore, Phillipines, Malaysia, Japan and others; so we thought it fit to be equipped with the right information. The region being the hub for manufacturing and production has a lot to offer discerning business people'.

The event is a fee paying one for interested persons and is open to members and non members seeking opportunities to be tapped in Asia and JCI Nigeria is proud to see the need and take the lead.

About JCI: The Junior Chamber International is a worldwide federation of young (community and business) leaders that provide development opportunities for active citizens to create positive change. Entrepreneurship is one of the ideals that the organisation promotes and the LTGA is geared towards this area.
