Nigeria: Etisalat Facilitates Networking Access

Etisalat in partnership with the Enterprise Development Centre (EDC) of the Lagos Business School, last week held the Port-Harcourt edition of the Market Access, a quarterly business networking session organised for small and medium scale businesses.

The session with theme "Facilitating market access to small and growing businesses" was spurred by the need to give growing businesses the platform to meet and interact with big businesses in order to create better business opportunities, create new avenues to build stronger businesses and in turn promote the spirit of entrepreneurship in Nigeria.

Speaking at the event, Chief Commercial Officer, Etisalat Nigeria, Mr. Wael Ammar who was represented by the Director, Corporate and Indirect Sales Channels, Mr. Ken Ogujiofor said small and growing businesses were integral to economic growth in Nigeria. According to him, Small and Medium Size Enterprises remain the backbone for the development of most economies around the world and should be supported for creating huge job opportunities at relatively low capital cost.

Director General, SMEDAN represented by Wale Fasanya said networking platforms such as Market Access would create access to a competitive market.
