Summit will be held January 15, 2014

Nigeria’s agribusiness leaders, organizations and authorities have the opportunity in January 2014 to take part free of charge in a one-day international summit on the further development of the country’s poultry, aquaculture and feed production.

The VIV International Nigeria Summit will run from 13:00 until 18:00 on January 15, 2014, at Sheraton Hotel Abuja, Nigeria. Farmers and integrators from throughout the country are registering to attend, as well as processors, retailers, government officials and representatives of the feed business.

International experts in poultry and aquaculture will present the Abuja meeting with examples of technical best practices as the foundation for an efficient and effective expansion of animal protein supplies from the nation’s farms. There will also be a focus on investment opportunities in Nigeria and on encouraging young people and women to explore the potential for employment in the agricultural sector nationally.
