Vice President Professor Osinbajo is set to deliver the keynote on Technology As A Catalyst: Ease of Doing Business conference in Lagos on Friday 5th October.

The forum is organised by leading law firm Perchstone and Graeys in partnership with IT consultancy outfit Knowledge Resources.

Other key officials of the Federal Government including Dr. Okechukwu Enelamah, Minister of Industry, Trade, and Investment and Barrister Adebayo Shittu, Minister of Communications, and heads of technology intensive government parastatals are also expected to grace the event.

Managing Director of Knowledge Resources, Gerald Ilukwe stated that the conference has the objective of highlighting the gains achieved so far from leveraging technology in public service delivery to enhance the ease of doing business in Nigeria.

The event which will bring together stakeholders from both the public and private sectors will also seek to identify opportunities for further technology driven improvement in reducing the menace of corruption and excessive bureaucracy as both remain major disincentives for Foreign Direct Investment into Nigeria.

The organizers have stated that they will closely monitor the communiqué arising from this conference and hold both the public and private sectors accountable for its full implementation.
