Nigeria: Digital Connectivity and Security Standards Workshop

Under its Access Africa initiative, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency is sponsoring the two-day Nigeria: Digital Connectivity and Security Standards Workshop. This event will convene public and private sector leaders from the United States and Nigeria to identify the technologies and solutions that can accelerate Nigeria’s digital transformation. Participants will assess the latest trends on digital trade standards, connectivity, spectrum management, TV White Space, 5G development and data privacy, as well as advance international best practices for ICT sector development.

This workshop represents an opportunity for U.S. companies to better understand the landscape of Nigeria’s ICT sector, learn about regulatory changes and upcoming project opportunities, meet key decision-makers and form new business partnerships.

The workshop will take place as two half-days from January 26-27, from 8:30am – 11:40am EST / 2:30pm – 5:40pm WAT. This virtual event will take place on the Cisco Webex platform.
