Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire — The African Natural Resources Centre of the African Development Bank will host a high-level West Africa gas competence seminar in Abidjan, Côte d'Ivoire, on April 17-18, 2018.

The seminar will examine some of the findings of this work. It will bring together policy-makers, industrialists, operators in mid- and downstream natural gas production, investment bankers and members of academia. They will share their experience and devise strategies to harness to the full potential of natural gas value chains.

The South Korean Government is financing the seminar through the Korea Africa Economic Cooperation programme.

Seminar participants will come from Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Mauritania, Nigeria and Senegal.
